New Delhi. Presenting Union budget for FY16, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley proposed to convert all the top IIT coaching institutes of Kota into IITs.
Explaining his decision, Mr. Jaitely highlighted the need to set up more and more IITs and IIMs to cater the educational needs of country’s young generation.
“We are trying to fasten up the process of increasing the count of good colleges in India,” said Finance Minister adding that coaching institutes of Kota with their world class infrastructures and teachers are going to be very helpful in achieving government’s dream of making every engineering aspirant an IITian, “Achhe din aa rahe hain.”
“Government doesn’t need to spend much on them, as they are already world class institutes,” Jaitley continued describing the master plan of Modi government, “However, in our rush to set-up more and more IITs, we don’t want to do any compromise with the quality. Only those coaching institutes which on an average send at least 50 of its students to IITs every year will be granted IIT status. You see, quality is very important.”
“Nothing much will change. All they need to do is to change the syllabus and the institute name written on the board outside their building gates. So, their names would be like IIT Bansal, IIT Resonance,” Arun Jaitley told Faking News, “For the first few years, we don’t want to put any extra pressure on the institute teachers. After the institutes will be converted into IITs, teachers will be given time to learn engineering courses, so that they can teach it to the students. By then, if they want they can continue teaching Physics, Chemistry and Math to the students.”
Meanwhile, middle class parents from across the country have expressed their happiness over government’s decision to further increase the number of IITs and IIMs.
“I am so happy that I am ready to forgive Mr. Jaitley for increasing service tax,” said Shankar Swamy from Chennai, whose son is targeting to crack IIT in 2017.
