As students and alumni will tell you, IT-BHU students go to a wide variety of institutions after graduation. These include top business schools, both in India and USA, and top engineering schools for MS/PhD. The continuous chain ensures that during your life at IT-BHU, you can approach your seniors for advice on these matters.

This page will contain updates from May 20, 2010 onwards.
Update 1: [May 20, 2010]: The cabinet note for conversion of IT-BHU to IIT has been prepared by MHRD. More details are available on this report in the Chronicle May 2010 edition.
According to the above report:
The cabinet note was prepared by HRD Ministry and sent to Legal Affairs of the Law ministry for suggestions. The Law ministry has sent the file back to MHRD with the suggestions/ comments to be addressed. The main objection was due the fact that MHRD has proposed in the cabinet note to include setting up of medical colleges by IITs (see news item below). This has been objected by the Law Ministry, which has asked for a review of cabinet note. According to current set up, Health Ministry is responsible for supervising setting up of medical colleges and running of medical courses (MBBS, etc.)
After incorporating the suggestions of Law ministry, the cabinet note will be sent to the Law ministry for clearance. After that, the note will be distributed to several ministries for their comments and suggestions to be incorporated in the revised note. The revised note will be forwarded to PMO (Prime Minister’s Office) and then to the Cabinet Secretariat for Cabinet meeting.
Cabinet will review the file and send its recommendation with a cabinet note to CCPA (Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs). CCPA will have any last-minute check on file before sending it to Parliament for inclusion in the Bill.
Parliament will then introduce the IT Amendment Bill and approve it for amendment of IT Act.
The passing of amendment of IT Act will depend upon the approval of cabinet note by the cabinet. After approval of the cabinet note, it will take about a month to complete the other formalities before the IT Bill is tabled in the parliament. Depending upon the time taken for clearing of cabinet note, the IT Bill can be expected to be introduced in the next parliament session (July-August), or later.
We will keep our readers updated with the latest happenings on this end. We are tracking this matter closely, and ask you for your patience.
