TnP Work Ethics

 "Students have an attitude problem"

“We don’t think we’ll come for placements this year”

GSec Review

Well the title says it all, but for formality, this section covers the good, the bad and the ugly of the Student Heads of IIT Delhi’s various Boards. These boards form the mediators, the facilitators and arbitrator between the students and the administration. Another year, another semester but the same old General Secretaries. With half their tenure over, let us see how much they squirm under the microscope.

Fee Hike at the IITs

After months of prolonged speculation on whether the government will or will not raise the fees of IITs in accordance with the recommendation of the joint IIT council, the cat is finally out of the bag. The Union human resources development (HRD) ministry has decided to more than double the tuition fees of IITs from the current Rs 90,000 annually to Rs 2 lakh.

Given the IIT standing committee, expert committee and finally, the high-powered IIT panel all recommending steep fee hikes, the decision to raise the fees was more about "when" than "if". But still, many who refused to read the writing on the wall are a disappointed lot today.
