IITs have given their verdict that the changes in the admission process for engineering courses were made in a hurry and have complicated the examination.
However, Ministry of Human Resource Development is yet to decide on reviewing the changes in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Joint Entrance Exam.
IIT-Guwahati, director said, since the beginning we had been suggesting this new pattern should be implemented from 2014, but to no avail. Though incorporating board marks for admission to IITs is a good move, the new format was implemented in a hurry.
IIT-Bombay, director also said that the new IIT JEE has complicated the entire admission process.
Meanwhile, members of the IIT alumni associations are set to go on an agitation later this month to protest against the new system.
Somnath Bharti, ex-president of IIT-Delhi Alumni Association and a Supreme Court lawyer are looking at engaging directly with ministry officials on this issue. They said, it is very unfortunate that these issues have cropped up.
MHRD officials said the Andhra Pradesh government had taken up the issue in a high court.
