IITs/ NITs! Why are you filling private institute’s seats when your own are vacant?

IIT_news3000 seats left vacant at NITs, IIITs and GFTIs after JoSAA  counselling was over. What was wrong and why were students made to suffer?

When the Delhi High Court mandated joint counseling for NITs/IITs one of its primary objectives was to reduce the number of vacant seats in the system. For an opportunity-starved nation like ours, even a single seat matters.

But the message posted by JoSAA appears to be the system cocking a snook at the Court. It says “JoSAA Counselling is over. There will be no Spot Round from JoSAA 2015. As per the business rule of JoSAA 2015, the candidates who have allotted a seat and reported in any RCs, their Seat Acceptance Fee will not be refunded. For the vacant seats in NIT+ system, CSAB 2015 was to take a decision on 5th August, 2015. 

 

When Careers360 contacted the authorities they agreed there were more than 3000 seats remain vacant in the IIT/NIT system. And JoSAA had the audacity to say counseling is over.

Until last year, the SFTI seats are filled during the spot round along with the vacant seats in the NIT system. So students still had a chance to   get a seat in NITs or if they prefer in a SFTI institute. And in 2013 there was an extra spot round for SFTI.  

 

This year there was no spot round until we go to press. What makes matters worse is that  the possibility of a spot round would happen only after 5th August 2015, which is the last date for paying fees  for Self Financing Technical Institutes who are part of the JEE system. Further, 6th August is the last date to fill choice in SFTIs. In other words, JoSAA is keener to fill seats in the associate institutes rather than its own seats.

 

So despite two years of litigation, repeated reminders from the highest court of the land, IITs will do what they please. Student welfare and national resources can go to seed.

 

How long should take this silently?

 

Ideally to salvage the situation, the NITs must announce the spot round for vacant seats on or before 6th august. And extend the last date for filling and locking choices beyond 6th august (5 PM) so that students have the option to get into NITs or SFTIs according to their choice.

 

Madam Smriti Irani! Will you do something?
