IIT Council Endorses the Proposal Containing the Names of 6 Candidates for Appointment as Directors of 6 New IITs
The 39th meeting of the Council of IITs, chaired by Shri Arjun Singh, Minister for Human Resource Development, was held here at Shastri Bhavan today. Smt. D Purandeswari, Minister of State for Higher Education also attended the meeting. As per The Institutes of Technology Act, which governs the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the Council of IITs is headed by the Minister of Human Resource Development as its Chairman, and includes the Director and the Chairman, Board of Governors of each of the IITs, Chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC), Chairman and Director of Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore, three members of Parliament, Director General, CSIR, a nominee of the AICTE, three nominees of the Central Government as well as three to five nominees of the President of India, who is the Visitor of IITs, as its members.

2. Welcoming the participants, the Minister of Human Resource Development stated that the IITs have done the country proud by establishing an impeccable reputation for themselves in the knowledge economy. He also expressed his sincere appreciation for the efforts put in and willingness shown by the older IITs in coming forward and mentoring the new IITs. It is because of this that the expenditure during the current year for IITs, is likely to be Rs. 1171 crores [including capacity expansion for OBC] as compared to last year’s expenditure of Rs. 404 crores. The entire allocation of Rs. 50 crores for the new IITs stood released.

3. The Council endorsed the proposal containing the names of six candidates for recommending to the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet, for appointment as Directors of six new IITs in Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Orissa, Punjab and Gujarat. Council also ratified the appointments of the Directors of the existing IITs, made since its last meeting. Section 17(1) of The Institutes of Technology Act lays down that the Director of each IIT shall be appointed by the Council with the prior approval of the Visitor. However, at its 14th meeting in 1974, the Council had also delegated this power to the Minister of Human Resource Development who was to be advised by a Search-cum-Selection Committee, the constitution of which had been stipulated at the 1st meeting of the Council in 1962. As per this delegation, the matter should be placed before the Council for information at its next meeting.

4. The members of the Council were apprised about the decision of the Union Cabinet to establish eight new Indian Institutes of Technology during the 11th Five Year Plan, of which six (Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Orissa, Punjab and Gujarat) had started their academic sessions w.e.f. July, 2008 and two new IITs of Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh are expected to commence their academic sessions through their temporary campuses by August, 2009. The Council approved the amendments proposed in “The Institutes of Technology Act” to provide for establishment of new IITs. While complimenting the older IITs for filling up 100% of the seats reserved for SCs/STs/and OBCs as per the agreed reservation percentages, the Minister of Human Resource Development exhorted the new IITs to have preparatory courses for SCs/STs w.e.f. 2009, so that there would be 100% filling up of reserved seats in the new IITs also.

5. Keeping in mind the overall shortage of faculty in the country and also in the IITs where about 20% of the posts are lying unfilled, the Council decided that a Committee of Directors will look into a new proposal namely, ‘Faculty Induction and Development Programme (FIDP)’, which will address this important issue. The Scheme includes programmes like identifying bright students on the verge of completion of their doctoral research as well as doing post doctoral work either in India or abroad and ‘Adjunct / Associate Faculty Scheme’ under which qualified professionals working in Research and Development in CSIR laboratories or in industrial establishments, would be appointed as Adjunct faculty. It was also decided that some of the recently retired eminent professors who had not yet attained the age of 65 years as well as some select former professors who may be slightly beyond 65 years, could also be taken on contract basis in areas where IITs are facing acute faculty shortage. It was also decided to introduce joint M.Sc.-PhD and Joint M.Tech. – PhD programmes to broaden the research and teaching base in the country.

6. The matter regarding capacity expansion in the existing seven IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee and Guwahati) for implementation of the Central Education Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act, 2006, providing for reservation for 27% OBC students, 15% SC students and 7½ ST students while keeping the number of seats for General Category students unchanged, was also reported to the Council. The Council was further informed that a Bill introduced by the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) had been passed by the Rajya Sabha in its last session, which provides for exemption from reservation in respect of appointment of faculty to posts higher than the lowest grade of Group ‘A’ posts in Institutes of excellence, including IITs. The Bill is expected to be introduced in the Lok Sabha in the ensuing Parliament session.

7. It was agreed by the Council that the IITs need to follow a system of assessment and accreditation, the modalities of which would be worked out by the Directors of the IITs and informed to the Ministry shortly. The Council also recommended that the age of superannuation of Directors of IITs may be enhanced from 65 to 70 years to bring it on a par with that for Vice Chancellors of Central Universities.
