IIT Council and Javadekar Vote Against MHRD Proposal to Scrap JEE Advanced

MHRD recently made a few important proposals including scrapping JEE Advanced and amending policies followed by IITs regarding fee structure, admission process, quality of education, preparation methods being opted among students etc. In a high level meeting held on August 21, 2018 the IIT Council and Minister Prakash Javadekar has voted against the proposals, citing that JAB (Joint Admission Board) is already looking after some of the major transformations for JEE Advanced.

Proposals by MHRD

  1. To form a committee of experts to check on the measures to be taken to bring changes in JEE Advanced & if necessary scrap the test and bring IITs under the purview of JEE Main.
  2. The other major reform offered was that instead of the previous system being followed, there must be allocation of the institution only and not of branches in different engineering colleges.
  3. There was also a proposal to work upon so that the dependency on coaching institutes may get reduced for the preparation of JEE among the aspirants.
  4. Other proposal was to increase the number of students being taught at IIT from about 10,000 to directly 80,000 by converting the IITs into high end institutes which would indulge teaching of only certain semesters.
  5. Proposal for recruitment of foreign faculty was also one of the main highlights.
  6. Revision in fee structure for foreign students must not exceed as it is already approx 6 Lakhs per annum which is not within of all candidates.

IIT Council Meeting on Aug 21 to Discuss Future of JEE Advanced

The MHRD (Ministry of Human Resource Development) has already implemented a major change of conducting the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) Main test twice from 2019 and another critical proposal for the engineering aspirants is about to get underway. There is a proposed move to discontinue the JEE Advanced, which has so far been the main evaluation criteria for admission to the undergraduate engineering courses at the various Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

Although the decision is not finalized yet, but the same will be discussed in the IIT council meeting. The meeting is intended to discuss the pros and cons associated with the proposed act and further to evaluate the feasibility of its implementation.

The proposal, if approved, may surely be a historical and transformational decision to streamline and regulate the highly reputed engineering institutions of the country in a better way. Apart from scrapping down the JEE Advanced exam, it would also be proposed for the IITs to turn the undergraduate engineering B.Tech. courses to the elevated engineering courses.
