DU students ask for Metro fare reduction

Students of Delhi University under the United Students group have written to the DMRC Chief E. Sreedharan asking him to revise his view on offering students of Delhi University a special fare. Students had earlier written to him suggesting that a special fare could be worked out for students going to and coming back from the Vishwavidyalaya Station only as a beginning but he had cited losses etc as a reason to deny the possibility Students have yesterday written to him again asking him to reconsider the decision as in many cases the cost of transport to and from the DU was more than the annual fees. Students have also argued that a comparison with other metros shows that students everywhere get preferential rates. In a related development, Transport Minister Haroon Yusuf has agreed to meet a delegation of United Students members in relation with the issue of starting Shuttle Bus services for the North and South Campus, which has added to the transport costs of students.

Comp-graduates park non-council

Mumbai: Ankit Gupta, a computer engineer from IIT Bombay, is the newest member of a consultancy firm as a Business Analyst. After four years of computer programming slogging, Gupta for a “management and resolution of problems for the nature of the future scope of custody”.

Gupta is not alone. Of the 1100 students, IIT-B from this year, only 40 have joined the computer Hollywood majors like Infosys, Wipro and TCS, while about 15% of graduates in computer science from non-technical areas . Of course, the engineer, the race director for his money.

Cut short the Engineering MBA route, several IIT graduates-are now joining the coaching job immediately after their BTech. The scenario is the same in other main schools of engineering. IIT Kanpur, saw eight BTech software engineers collaborative enterprise financial partner and three analysts, such as consulting firms McKinsey and Lehmann Brothers, this year’s placement.

And why not? With Infosys, Wipro or may not be close to the annual salary of Rs 10 lakh as consultation and corporate financing, the cream of graduates in computer science are the other way. IIT-Roorkee Position President PK Jain said that the financing of eight companies and 10 consultancy firms have collected nearly 100 students on campus this year. Kushal Sen, chief investment in IIT Delhi, attributes this trend over the lucrative wages offered by other sectors, as well as the increasing number of companies visiting the IIT campus for recruiting engineers.

IIT-B director Ashok Misra pointed out that there has been a waste of time, while the boom in information technology, when students at the computer is not only scientific but also all flows the location of tests under the direction of Infosys, Wipro and TCS. But it was the time when companies IT wages paid, almost double, which can provide jobs engineering.

“Today, engineers graduates not to rest once and for the placement of interviews, computer companies, unless it is a rare case, and not a student at another place too for a long time, “says Gupta, who is also the position of the IIT-B.

This year, flat annual companies such as Infosys and Wipro are less than half the average wage in the tender IIT Campus. “The average annual wage on our campus R 6.5 lakh. Why a student must become familiar with an RS-3 lakh job? Request BK Mathur, president of the Investment Committee at IIT-Kharagpur. Indeed, if their participation Satyam letter this year, said she Rs 2.8 lakh years’ salary-IIT graduates, it was not invited.

And so FMCG companies, retail and real estate for a chance to ITI Campus this year. Kannan Moudgalya service technical chemistry IIT Bombay said: “Many sectors have now need not only experts in the field, but also computer programmers. In case of non-technical, IIT graduates-are currently in arrivals as New Economy Tasks financial analysis math Officer and Financial Engineering. “

ICR Forms Leave Students Confused

Delhi University may have tried to lend a helping hand to students by including extra curricular activities (ECA) and sports in this year`s ICR forms, but with colleges likely to receive their individual admission data only by June 22 — much after some of the trials and auditions are over — students have been left a little confused.

Though the ICR form does give students the option of saying if they were interested in applying under the ECA or sports category, it neither gives the specifics of the area the student is interested in nor his abilities in the said department.

But then that is just one of the problems that students who have applied through the ICR form are likely to face. According to Delhi University officials, confusion is likely in colleges that have their trials before June 22 when ICR data will be handed over to colleges. This would include the lists and details of students who have applied to each and every course as well as under the ECA and sports categories.

We have been receiving a lot of enquiring from students about the ECA category. Most students have been a little confused about whether they should also apply with the college separately. It is advisable for students to apply separately to college for the category in case the trials and auditions are before June 22 as the colleges would not have the data,“ said Deputy Dean Students` Welfare Amit Bardhan.

The University feels that it will be up to individual colleges to decide whether they want to allow students to take the test without the ICR data. Yet another problem that students seem to be facing is their name appearing on the general list even if they have applied under the ECA category.

A number of students have asked us on this and we would like to clear that the names of students who apply under the ECA or any other category will be sent to colleges under both the general and the special category list,“ said Mr. Bardhan

Many Students Pin Hopes On Second List

With just one more day to go before the second cut-off list of percentages for admission to Delhi University is announced on Thursday, the campus witnessed a flurry of activity on the second day of admissions this Tuesday.

But as the day progressed, and seats filled up, it was clear that not many colleges would have good news to offer for those pinning their hopes on making it to the second list.

For many students who ended up taking a different combination in their Class XII, the first session of admission has once again brought home a rude realisation that a different combination does not always help in Delhi University.

I have marketing as one of my subjects. And although my best of four with the subject would have ensured me a place in the B.A. course at Moti Lal Nehru College, I did not get admission because marketing is counted as a vocational subject here and so not included in the best of four. And without the subject, my aggregate does not come up to the demand,“ said Siddharth Banerjee, a Commerce student.


There were also those who did not have the necessary documents or forgot to check if they had applied in a certain college at all. I am eligible in many colleges, but the problem is I forgot to apply in them. Now I don`t know what to do because I can`t join the college I am eligible in and can`t rely completely on the second cut-off either,“ said Nisha Singh, a student at Gargi College.

We are expecting to close admission for many of courses such as Geography, English and Journalism. But there will be seats available in many other courses, and so a second cut-off will most definitely come. In fact, one expects the maximum movement after the second cut-off when students migrate or find themselves in a place where they may find themselves in. But a third cut-off is highly unlikely in most colleges,“ said Minotini Chatterjee, Principal of Kamla Nehru College.

Some colleges have, in fact, seen more rush than usual this time around.

We have witnessed an unexpected rise this time round. For example, in commerce alone, we have already filled up double our existing seats and there is still one more day to go. It is for the first time that we have seen such a rush. Although our cut-off will be decided only tomorrow, we don`t expect more than a drop of a percent or two,“ said an official at Moti Lal Nehru College

IIT Delhi revokes expulsion of three Dalit students

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi Wednesday cancelled the expulsion of three Dalit students, but said the remaining 17 against whom similar action was taken for “poor performance” would not be reinducted. In a mail to IANS, the registrar’s office said the special review committee (SRC) had several meetings with the expelled students from June 20 to June 25 and examined all available records.

“After examining the records and discussing with the students, the committee determined that all applicable academic and administrative procedures had been followed in all cases without exception,” the registrar’s office said.

“Further, during the discussion, no case of discrimination on the basis of caste was brought up by any of the students or their parents. The committee has concluded that the termination of registration of students is as per the rules of the institute,” it added.

However, the registrar said the committee on June 30 recommended a lenient view towards three students, including two from the scheduled caste category.

“The director has since revoked the termination of these three students,” the registrar said in the mail, which did not reveal the names of the students who have been taken back.

IIT Delhi said in spite of special focus and extra care for those from marginalized groups, a total of 20 students were “asked to leave in view of their very poor performance”. Of these, 11 are from the Scheduled Caste category, one from the Scheduled Tribe category and the remaining eight are from the general category

Coaching IIT aspirants a Rs.100 bn business – study

New Delhi: Private academies that train students for entrance exams of the Indian Institutes of Technology and other prestigious engineering colleges mint Rs.100 billion ($2.30 billion) a year – an amount that can fund 30 to 40 new IITs, shows a study by an industry body.

The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) study, released on Wednesday, said private academies who train 600,000 students every year for these exams make Rs.100 billion a year.

Calling for de-regulation of higher education, Assocham president Sajjan Jindal said the beneficiaries of the current system were those running big educational institutions and coaching centres.

“The amount of money which goes to these institutions – Rs.100 billion – is enough to open 30 to 40 IITs with lots of seats that can ensure admission to average candidates, aspiring to be an engineering graduate,” he said.

At least 50 percent of the students who appear in the entrance tests for admissions to IITs and other engineering colleges enroll with coaching centres to beat the cut-throat competition, said Assocham.

Talking about another anomaly in higher education, the body said that 80,000-90,000 students go abroad for higher studies, leading to a high foreign exchange outflow.

“If quality institutions are provided, a large number of students will stay back and contribute to the nation,” said Assocham.

The chamber asserted that more institutions of excellence should come up and suggested that private players and big industrial groups should be encouraged in higher education.
