MHRD - Press Release

About IIEST(INI) status of 5 Institutions including BESU

5. Major Initiatives for 2007-08 and the XI th Plan

"We have also decided, in principle, to provide assistance towards upgradation of 5 Engineering Colleges to the level of an IIT, and name them as Indian Institutes of Science and Engineering Technology, subject to the concurrence of the concerned State Governments to hand them over to Central Government for declaring them as Institutes of National Importance."

 

The Financial Express

Sound and fury

Outside class

"The CPM has nothing against efficiency. Really. It discovered long ago that an efficient tool for mind control is the education system, and it has been loath to lose its grip. So it is entirely understandable that party’s comrades are jittery about the Centre’s offer to upgrade Bengal Engineering & Science University. The Union HR ministry is keen to revamp this prestigious institution for the betterment of scientific endeavour, but the West Bengal government is hemming and hawing, unclear about the effect it might have on the brains that pass through its portals. What if students begin thinking about efficiency outside the class, even beyond enemy lines, in such places as the market?" Details

 
 

 

Q. Do you remember WB Govt's position on IIT/INI in 2003?

A. Turned down in 2003! Flashback 2003!
