Anyone have any idea what this line in release means?

Hello All,
This marks the culmination of the series of the decision making going on at the Union Cabinet, regarding the final say as to whether the IT-BHU should be upgraded to IIT status or not.
The said process started at the helms of the Union cabinet on the day when the decision for 13 Medical Colleges to be upgraded to AIIMS "like" institution was taken. At that time it was not sufficiently highlighted. But for the first time the ‘in principle opinion’ was made for IT-BHU's rightful elevation.
In essence what today's decision marks is the Final Go Ahead from the Executive side, pending resolution of few outstanding issues concerning the modalities of the conversion vis-à-vis BHU's stand.
Now to a great extent the ball is in the BHU's court. The BHU Administration must try its best to resolve any difference, which are bound to arise to settle to the advantage of IT which it has solemnly mustered in what is said as once in a life time phenomena.
One of the outstanding issues is the nomenclature of the IIT. But most importantly the clubbing of the BHU's VC post with the Chairman of the Board of the Governors of the upgraded IIT in Varanasi is a serious cause of concern. What has brought me to this point of analysis is one of a clause in the BHU Act, which says that the VC of the BHU shall be a Hindu. Now what it means is that if one clubs both the posts then essentially one is talking to restrict the post of the Chairman BOG of an IIT based on a particular religion. While that may be justified for the BHU which was established in early part of 20th century given the very nature and the contemporary set of the said university in the pre-colonial era, it would certainly be a mammoth task for any govt to maintain it for institutions created after independence which are Non-Minority in nature.
I sincerely hope that the BHU Admin must have chalked out a well thought of plan to tackle such ticklish questions.
Anyways the prospects are very positive at this point of time. Even if the Govt falls on 22nd, the hopes will still be alive and IT_BHU will most probably see that getting matured and materialized, be it the Congress or the BJP...... be it the year 2008 or or for matter 2009..
Only this is let the BHU Admin know when and how it has to maneuver the balls, which now lies solely in its court ...........

Hi all:

It was nice to see postings here. Thanks to anonymous, If_only, Rajat and others, the site has become lively again. We all are aware of news about cabinet granting approval for conversion of IT to IIT. By end of next month, Parliament will amend the IIT Act, 1961 and add our institute in the list by passing the Bill.

I had a brief talk with our VC Prof D P Singh today about IIT issue. He told me that he has also heard the news about cabinet's decision
to convert IT-BHU to IIT. However, he has still to receive official written reply.

About the name of the new institute, he is not aware of any. (During my earlier talk with former VC Prof Panjab Singh, he stated that it will be IIT-BHU only. Let us wait what govt. has to say.)

About modifying BHU Act, he told me that it will be done by the parliament, and not by the university.

About separation of IT from BHU, he informed me that it can be started by BHU Executive Council only after getting directive from the central govt. for that effect.

So far, the steps appear to be:

1)Cabinet approves the conversion (done)
2)Parliament modified the IIT Act and includes our institute in the list of IITs to be established.
3)Parliament modifies BHU Act, to allow separation of IT from BHU.
4) BHU Executive Council approves separation of IT.
6)Govt. notifies IT about completing formalities
7)Institute informs govt. that it has met all the necessary legal requirements
8)Govt. notifies conversion in Gazzette Extraordinary
9)Govt. finally officially announces IT as IIT.

Some steps may run parallel.

Hi Nikhil:

The entire conversion process is expected to last for 4-6 months. We can expect the final official announcement for IIT for our institute by the end of this year.

The passout of class of 2009 are guranteed for IIT degree. For the class of 2008, (which will be awarded degree in March 2009)it is upto the IT and BHU administration; and central govt. has no say in it.

here is link for Presentation by Secretary(HE) in the Inaugural Session of two-day Conference of State Ministers for Higher and Technical Education.

According to this presentation govt has proposed to convirt it bhu to an IIT. But there is nothing mentioned about the conversion process while they have full plan for setting up 8 new IIT. I dont understand why they are not coming up with full plan for IT BHU also . Also in the map they are showing only 8 new IIT leaving IT BHU also there. Does this mean IT BHU will be convirted to an IIT in next yr plan not in 11th yr plan.

Sorry..for the long article...This details how Roorkee was converted..

The making of an IIT -- Roorkee Univ in the throes of transition
Saumya Bhattacharya
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Delhi : The government has appointed an expert committee to go into the mechanism of the changeover of the Roorkee University into IIT, Roorkee. It is expected to submit its report in three months time, according to highly placed sources in the department of education. The panel would identify the modalities of structural changes needed for the transition.
Following the announcement in Budget 2001, last week the Union Cabinet approved the changeover of Roorkee University to a full-fledged IIT. When Parliament reassembles in May, an amendment to the Institutes of Technology Act, 1961, would be put forward. One of the first modifications would be the change in the name of the university to IIT, Roorkee. The Finance Minister had announced in the Budget for the year 2001-02 that the Roorkee University would be upgraded to an IIT.

Sources pointed out that the non-Plan spend on the new IIT has been enhanced to Rs 45 crore for the year 2001-2002 compared to Rs 30 crore being spent annually by the Uttar Pradesh government on Roorkee University. This amount would be utilised for the increased salaries of the employees and for maintenance of the new IIT. Sources pointed out that the full fiscal impact would be known only when the changeover is implemented.

On the Plan side, the government has set aside an amount of Rs 110 crore for infrastructure upgradation. This would be invested over a period of three years.

The making of an IIT: Roorkee Univ in the throes of transitionGovernance structure The entire existing governance structure of the Roorkee University will be abolished. It would no longer have a vice-chancellor, instead, as an IIT it will now be headed by a full-time director. Also, the nomenclature of the IIT family would come into effect, the official explained.

For instance, IIT Delhi is an autonomous statutory organisation functioning within the Institutes of Technology Act as amended by The Institutes of Technology (Amendent) Act, 1963. The six Indian Institutes of Technology (at Delhi, Bombay, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Guwahati) are administered centrally by the IIT Council, an apex body established by the government to co-ordinate activities of these Institutes. The minister for human resource development of the Government of India is the chairman of the council. Each institute of technology has a board of governors responsible for its overall administration and control.

The IIT Senate decides the academic policy of the Institute, and approves curriculum, courses and examination results. It appoints committees to look into specific academic matters arising from time to time. The teaching, training and research activities of various departments at the Institute are constantly under review to improve both facilities and standards. The director of the institute is the chairman of the Senate. Financial advice to the institute is rendered by a Finance Committee. ``This structure will now come into place at Roorkee University,'' says a source close to the changeover.

According to a top official in the department of education, the conversion of Roorkee University to an IIT is part of the overall strategy of the Union Ministry for Human Resource Development to promote the middle-level institutions to high-level institutions. This is the first of the series of conversions. The long-term plan is to convert as many regional engineering colleges to IIT as possible. Incidentally, the Mashelkar Committee has also recommended converting regional engineering colleges to IITs.

Elaborating on the reasons, a Ministry official pointed out: ``This is a better option, as setting up new IITs entails a much bigger investment.'' The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, for example, is being set up at a cost of Rs 1,000 crore.

Bonanza time!
If the amendment to the Institutes of Technology Act, 1961, is effected in May when Parliament reassembles, it would mean a mega bonanza for the students. The graduates passing out this year then would graduate with the much-coveted title of `IIT graduates'! It is also bonanza time for the Roorkee University staff who stand to get a much higher salary after the conversion of the university to an IIT. According to the sources at the Union Ministry of Human Resources, the expert panel is currently reviewing the salary structure. On the issue of selection of faculty, the sources pointed out that the selection of Roorkee University faculty is already on the same lines as the IITs - entirely on the basisof merit.

Dear All,

Is anyone aware of the new IIT that has been proposed by the UP Govt. This new IIT would be in Lucknow. I read this news two days back in the Mail Daily newspaper (24/08/2008) while on a flight to Singapore. The paper had one article which highlighted the glory that UP CM has brought to the state and also her statement which said that she is trying for an IIT LUCKNOW in the state.

Are we people on the rite track? Does the delay in the conversion process relates to this news anyways?

Everyone knows that if this comes out to be true, then we may be expect some shocking news from the centre. Nobody knows the reason behind the political alliances these days......
