Centre should stop interfering in IITs

At the Pan IIT Conference that concluded on Sunday, bigwigs of the Indian Institutes of Technology were unanimous on improving their brand value and quality. But there was one among them who sought drastic reforms and a change in the governance system of India’s premier technology colleges — B Muthuraman, Chairman of the Board of Governors of IIT Kharagpur.

Muthuraman made two critical observations. First, he felt the IIT Board of Governors were becoming redundant with no more than a “two-way conversation” between the IIT Director and the Chairman alone. Second, he said it was high time New Delhi stopped interfering in the IITs even though it was the funding agency.

Calling for separation of teaching and administration, Muthuraman said while there had been sweeping changes in the last 50 years, there was no change in the way the IITs were being governed.
