Necessity of JEE for IITs
The Ministry of HRD has proposed the merger of the IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) and AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination). This proposal intends to alter a system that has been the backbone and a shining example of opportunity and fairness in the Indian education system. In light of such far reaching and irreversible consequences of this proposal the alumni of all IITs believe it was necessary to critically examine the reasons set forth by the HRD ministry.
Please find attached a report prepared by the alumni of IIT which critically examines the reasons put forth by the HRD ministry to abolish JEE in its present form and merge it with AIEEE. The report argues an opposing viewpoint and builds the case for the necessity of Joint Entrance Examination for IITs. In case you agree with the report and feel that JEE should not be abolished, please sign on this petition. This endorsed document would be presented to the IIT Council.
