IIT amendment bill will be taken along with NIT amendment bill for consideration in Rajya Sabha. Till allocated for these two bills together is 2 hours.

As NIT amendment bill was not passed till last friday in lok sabha, IIT amendment bill was not listed under business for Rajya Sabha till date.

Now hope the IIT amendment bill be taken up this week as NIT bill is passed in lok sabha.

It is true and painful to everyone waiting for the same to happen ...this way the country is progressing for the last 64 years.....answer to why other 3rd world countries progressed exponentially when compared to what India has achieved. Such commotions were not present earlier when India got independence otherwise one can imagine the state. A little selfish of me, as there is a blast in Delhi today and Mr. Adwani has agreed to talk to Shri Pranab Mukherjee to withdraw few demands so that parliament works during the time left for this session and there is a day left for tomorrow. Also, congress has a majority in the House the bill can be passed in few minutes......or else wait for new Year . Good and strong point in favour is that the students passing out next year from new IITs first badge will have a degree from IITs that never existed legally. All the best ....."Sabr ka fal meetha hota hai"

It is very annoying to find that "Institute of Technology Amendment Bill-2011", scheduled many a times on legislative business, could not be considered in the entire monsoon session of Rajyasabha due to continued interruptions & disturbances in the proceedings due to something or other. During the entire session, only 9 bills out of 34 listed could be considered/passed. So, our volunteers & ITians at influential positions need to follow it up with HRD Minister Sh. Kapil Sibal, Leader of Opposition Sh. Arun Jaitely, Prof. Murali Monohar Joshi & Sh. Rajeev Shukla, etc so as to keep the bill in the beginning of Winter Session. It will help in consideration & passing of the bill even with interruptions/ disturbances in between. This will be very much helpful to our Institute as well as to the students who have already passed out & waiting for long to get their Degrees and also those going to pass-out in 2012.

With Anna again raising his voice against Government Lokpal Bill and BJP joining hands with him, it seems very likely that the parliament will not function for next 3-4 days.Whether the bill is scheduled on monday or tuesday.it does not create any difference.It now seems impossible for our bill to get passed in this session only.We will have to wait for next session which is the budget session which generally does not function which means we will have to wait till eternity.Why our insti directors and our alumnis are not approaching opposition for our cause and asking them to let the parliament function?And Why our bill remains in the least priorty for Parliament?Whenever I check the LOB of Rajya sabha our bill remains at 6th or 7th position?
Why is everybody not understanding that faster conversion of IT to IIT is what this insti needs to boost up its morale and enhance other aspects??

Not much time left in this session. Tomorrow there is no chance for it to be picked. Friday being 'private member business' day. Next week has only 3 days of session before RS adjourns sine die.

If this session expires then it means that Rajya sabha has not acted within 6 months. In that case a Joint sitting for a Non-Money bill is ideally called. This is true for any Ordinary Bill( Non Money Bill).

Would like to know what the people tracking this issue have to share on this? As in the Budget session it should not be ideally listed. And if the joint sitting of both houses are convened for voting then traditionally it the LS's view which prevails due to its sheer strength.

Lastly, is there any possibility of the Ordinance left given that the new IITs will have difficulty in giving degree for the batch passing out in March/April, since mere passage of bill by both houses does not immediately translate into the application of the Act. The Presidential assent although a straight process takes some time. Even after that the Secretary MHRD will take sometime to NOTIFY the Act.

well! I don't think that is going to happen , I mean joint sitting thing.. look at the educational tribunal bill .. it has been now more than a year since it has been differed in the discussion .. but it is still getting listed to be considered .. , now its not only the fate of new IITs .. but IISER (through NIT act) as well where the first batch is already out in July from two institute.. meanwhile its an amendment not a fresh bill .. so normal rules does not apply to this amendment act .. on the other line .. it seems that the government want to pass these kind of bill without discussion etc .. so they are not getting proper time .. and here is the risk involved .. remember what happened in IITDM bill!! . .. however still hopeful that it will see the light of the floor in the coming days .. still three day to go ...

Yes it is true , at least wait until last hour ....it is definitely going to pass this session. slowly slowly bills are on the way .

As you people might remember that during the last session (monsoon) it was on its way just by an announcement of speaker, had that IIIT machlipatnam bill was not questioned by the congress member it self this bill would have passed . So don't worry and don't get panicked at least you people are not studying in the societies ( new IITs are registered as societies.

The bill can not be passed in this session due to one reason - RS will not allow K Sibal to present anything. They will continue to make havoc on the floor till sabha gets adjourned.
