Till 2020 IITs may admit up to one lakh students

Good New for IIT Aspirants

The reputed IITs may enroll one lakh students by 2020, if things are upto their plan.


A proposal to be considered by the IIT council states that 30,000 additional non-resident students will be allowed to study at these institutes in the next three years.


The proposal to suggest admitting non-resident students will be discussed in the meeting of the IIT council that is scheduled to be held on August 23, said sources.
'The plan is to increase the IITians to 1 lakh by 2020'

  • "Right now, IITs admit up to 72,000 students in their undergraduate, post graduate or doctorate courses which are residential. However, it is being mulled that students, who will not stay in hostels should be admitted to these institutes," a source said
  • The plan is to raise the number by 10,000 every year so that the number of IIT-ians reaches 1 lakh by 2020

'The increase will be without compromising on the teaching process'

  • "Rather than create infrastructure for hostel accommodation of 30,000 additional students, which will also take considerable time to come up, it is proposed to increase the intake of more talent by taking in non-residential students," the source said
  • "The increase will be without compromising on the teaching process and would be subject to availability of adequate teaching facilities," the source added
  • In a move relates to campus recruitment,  IITs may recruit PhD students from the campus to fill up the vacancies
