Come 2013, engineering entrance examinations like IIT JEE and AIEEE will be scrapped. IIT Council has decided to have a common entrance test for IITs/NITs, state government-run and private engineering colleges throughout the country from 2013. This is not the only major decision the council has taken. It also decided to go in for a complicated fee hike structure. But there is a catch - both the decisions are subject to approval from the state governments and the finance ministry. In case this decision to hold the common examination does not meet the states' approval, only IITs/NITs - under the central government - would have a common entrance test.
The fee structure decided by the Council, the highest decision-making body of the IITs, is complicated. While all aspirants at the time of admission will pay the existing fee, after they pass out 25% of students (other than SCs/STs/OBCs) who can afford the hike of Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh suggested by Anil Kakodkar committee, would be made to pay the amount to their institutions in easy installments.
When we asked HRD minister Kapil Sibal how this would be implemented, Sibal said employers would pay to the IIT. Under the proposed law that would allow dematerialisation of certificates in electronic format, employers would cross-check the validity of certificates from government and then they would be told to pay a part of salary of the student directly to the institute.
This would only be possible when the student is asked to sign a bond at the time of admission. However, what is not clear is what will happen to a student who starts his own business? What happens to students who join a foreign firm in a foreign country?
Another exception to this payback rule will be if the student pursues higher studies like M.Tech and subsequently Ph.D. However, the entire formulation on fee has to meet the approval of finance ministry.
As for the common entrance test for all engineering exams, what has been decided by the T Ramaswami committee is a new kind of Joint Entrance Examination where weightage would be given to class XII marks of students and a Scholastic Aptitude Test-kind of test.
While the committee has given various options, no final decision has been taken on which option will be adopted. Talking about this, Sibal said it had not been decided how much weightage would be given to class XII marks and the SAT-like test. The marks scored by students in class XII would be 'normalised' through a formula devised by experts of the Indian Statistical Institute.
