The 93rd convocation of Banaras Hindu University took place on March 12. However, Convocation of 2010 pass outs of IT-BHU is postponed indefinitely till our institute gets IIT status. This is being done to award degree certificates with IIT tag to the students. As the IT (Amendment) Bill 2010 (which was recently passed by the parliament), our institute can grant certificates with IIT-BHU tag, if not awarded so far. Such certificates with IIT tag can be given from 2010 batch onwards, after our institute is officially declared as an IIT.
A notice is posted on the official website of our institute as follows:
The academic council of Banaras Hindu University has kindly decided to keep in abeyance the convocation proceedings in respect of IT Graduands of 2010 and thereafter, as the Parliament is scheduled to consider the pertinent bill.
As and when the convocation proceeding for Institute of Technology (I.T.) is decided, the necessary announcement will be made.
