New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has sent notices to 15 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the ministry of human resource development to clarify their process of selection through the annual joint entrance examination (JEE), a teacher who filed the case said Thursday.
"The IIT-JEE selection procedure is a fraud. I have been fighting against it for four years and finally the Delhi High Court has issued notice to the ministry, the IIT council and the Joint Admission Board that conducts the entrance", Rajeev Kumar, a professor from IIT-Kharagpur, told IANS.
"The entrance in its current format is not transparent. No one knows how they select the candidates, he said.
"Though Kolkata High Court dismissed my public interest litigation, I moved the Delhi High Court, said the computer science professor.
Advocate Prashant Bhushan, who is fighting the case on behalf of Kumar, said that the court has asked the three parties to reply by mid May.
Every year tens of thousands of students appear for the JEE seeking a berth in the elite technology schools. Currently India has 15 IITs including the eight new ones who have started operation in the last two years.
This year over 400,000 students will appear in the IIT-JEE scheduled for April 11.
Kumar said he has also met Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal on this isssue.
