IIT faculty visits PMO on JEE row.
During the meeting, which lasted for about 40 minutes, the members of the All India IIT Faculty Federation are reported to have pressed more upon the year of introduction of the entrance test and also the inclusion of Board marks for admission purpose.
The delegation also demanded that the HRD Ministry should now seek the approval of the IIT Senates on the new format of the JEE. They also said that IITs should be given the choice of accepting the test on their own terms or rejecting it altogether.
" The meeting was fruitful as Mr ( TKA) Nair heard us out and seem to even agree with us on some of our concerns. Even he felt that maybe 2013 was too early to introduce the new format of the JEE," a member of the Federation who did not wish to be identified said.
On Friday morning, the delegation ( made up of representatives of the seven old IITs), is scheduled to meet the PM.
