Sub: Conversion of IT-BHU to IIT-Petition from IT-BHU Community

Respected Sir:

We, the alumni, students, faculty and staff of the Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (IT-BHU), are deeply disturbed by the contents of the resolution of the Executive Council of BHU, which met on February 21, 2009 to consider the MHRDs plan to convert IT-BHU into an IIT.

As you may kindly recall, the MHRD and the Union Cabinet have in principle decided to take over IT-BHU, convert into an IIT and integrate with IIT system, as per PIB notifications dated March 28 and July 17, 2008. In February 2009, you had spoken to the Honble HRD Minister and he had assured that the IT-BHU would be converted into an IIT. A few days later, there was another press release on your behalf on February 10, 2009 and an announcement by the Honble Rector before the agitating students of IT-BHU that the University is committed to the conversion of IT-BHU into an IIT. However, the version of the EC resolutions which have come in the media does not reflect the commitments made by the university and is also not consonant with the MHRD and the Union Cabinets decision for the takeover of IT-BHU, its conversion into an IIT and integration with the IIT system in the country.

This has puzzled us beyond our imagination, as we have been sincerely hoping that IT-BHU will be converted into IIT from July 2009 session.

In view of the above, we appeal to you to kindly stand by your commitments made to us all along for the conversion of IT-BHU into IIT-BHU. We sincerely believe that with your kind help, strong support and active persuasion in this matter, IT-BHU will become an IIT very soon. From this conversion, Malaviyajis great Institute of technology will be given the due respect and status in National and International scenario and days will come when it will become one of the outstanding Institutes in the World.

We request you to kindly take all necessary action for removing the obstacles created by the EC resolutions in the conversion of IT-BHU into an IIT. We urge to you the call a meeting of BHU Executive Council as soon as possible and have the following agenda discussed and approved:

1) Completely separate IT-BHU from BHU and grant autonomous status in preparation for conversion to IIT status

2) Approve your nomination as a permanent ex-officio member of IIT-BHU (or IIT, Varanasi) Governing Board after conversion

3) Allow our institute to retain the existing campus, and consider plan for satellite campus on Mirzapur campus.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

The Alumni, Students, Faculty and Staff of IT-BHU
