The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has sent a directive to all 31 NITs and the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur to increase the participation of women in these central technical institutes.
The directive states that each of these institutes will have to admit minimum 14% women in the academic year 2018-19. The institutes have been asked to create supernumerary seats for such admissions this year, if required.

In April, last year, Joint Admission Board (JAB) asked IITs to admit more women candidates from 2018.
As a result, IITs had set up a panel under the leadership of Professor Timothy Gonsalves to address the issue.
"The idea is to restore a gender balance among premier engineering colleges as they have been highly skewed against the girls.Entrance exams are so tough that one cannot crack it without rigorous coaching. Generally, girls are not sent to coaching centres which are in far-flung areas such as Kota and Hyderabad," said an MHRD official to ET.
