About the Institute

Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is one of the seven Institutes of Technology created as centres of excellence for higher training, research and development in science, engineering and technology in India, the others being at Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Bombay, Guwahati and Roorkee. Established as College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared an Institution of National Importance under the "Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963" and was renamed "Indian Institute of Technology Delhi". It was then accorded the status of a deemed university with powers to decide its own academic policy, to conduct its own examinations, and to award its own degrees.

HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, laid the foundation stone of the Institute on January 27, 1959. The Institute was inaugurated by Prof.Humayun Kabir, the then Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs on August 21, 1961. The Institute buildings were formally opened by Dr.Zakir Hussain, the then President of India, on March 2, 1968.

Introduction

The Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (located at Hauz Khas) (formerly College of Engineering & Technology Delhi), commonly known as IIT-Delhi or IIT-D , is a major college of engineering in Delhi, India. It forms a part of the league along with other IITs in India: the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee.

History
The institute was established as College of Engineering & Technology, Delhi on August 21, 1961. Its foundation stone was laid by HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and was inaugurated by Prof sudama, then Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs.

After less than two years of existence, Parliament of India amended Institutes of Technology Act, and upgraded the institute as Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. The IIT Delhi main building was formally opened by Dr. Zakir Hussain, the then President of India, on March 2, 1968.

Campus
IIT Delhi is located in Hauz Khas, South Delhi. The longitudinal campus of 320 acres (1.3 km2) [1] is surrounded by the beautiful Hauz Khas area and monuments such as the Qutub Minar and Lotus Temple. The campus is also close to other educational institutions such as the Jawaharlal Nehru University. The inside of the campus resembles a well planned city with gardens, lawns, residential complexes and wide clean roads. The campus has its own water supply and backup electricity supply along with shopping complexes to cater to the daily needs of residents.

The overall IIT-D campus is divided into four main zones:
* Student Residential Zone

* Faculty and Staff Residential Zone

* Student Recreational Area, that includes the Student Activity Center (SAC), football stadium, cricket ground, basketball courts, hockey field, lawn tennis courts.

* Academic Zone that includes department offices, lecture theaters, libraries and workshops.

The student residential zone is divided into two main sectors—one for men's hostels and another for women's hostels.

Hostels
There are, in total, 11 hostels (9 for boys and 2 for girls). Now a new eight storey hostel is being constructed in front of main gate near Himadri House for girls only and will be the only hostel having lift facility.Many new ones are expected as the number of seats have jumped through the roof. Another new hostel is being constructed behind Satpura hostel. There are also apartments for married students. All the hostels (Known as Houses) are named after various mountain ranges in India—Shivalik, Aravali, Himadri, Jwalamukhi, Karakoram, Kailash, Kumaon, Nilgiri, Satpura, Vindhyachal and Zanskar. The residential apartments are named after ancient Indian universities—Taxila and Nalanda.

Each hostel has a capacity of around 400 students though some hostels can house 600 students[citation needed]. However the women's hostels have a much smaller capacity. Each hostel has its own mess, a common room where residents can watch television and read magazine and newspapers and a visiting room where residents can receive their guests. In addition, each hostel has its own computer room facility, although its use has declined severely in past few years because increasingly, students now own personal computers in their rooms. All the hostel rooms are provided with an internet connection, a facility which has caused much debate among the faculty of the institute over the allegation that students spend much of their time on web-surfing and LAN gaming instead of completing their assignments and projects. No such facility is although provided in the residential apartments and their residents use the facilities of an assigned hostel.

Every hostel has a warden,who is a faculty of the college, and a caretaker. Hostels are in general self managed by students, with the warden not interfering in the hostel affairs, other than the clearing of bills and budget. A House Secretary is elected by the students for managing the affairs of the hostel, who is assisted by a mess secretary, a maintenance secretary, a cultural secretary(called cultu) and a sports secretary. Elections for the different positions are held in the end of March. The period of time surrounding these election processes is greatly popular among students, who delight in the joy of bitching around while campaigning and holding freshers captive for hours on end delivering what is commonly known as "fundae". There are 13 representatives(called reps) of the hostel, each representing one of the clubs of the Board for Cultural and Recreational Activities(BRCA), Board for Student Publication(BSP) and Board for Student Welfare(BSW). There are captains for each of the sports teams of the hostels that include Cricket, Tennis, Squash, Table Tennis, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Swimming, Athletics and Weightlifting.

There exists great inter hostel rivalry between hostels as they compete to win the trophies of the different boards by winning the various cultural and sports events that are held throughout the academic year. The BRCA and the BSA trophy are the most sought after trophies of the college.

Students Life

The accent of student life and activities on the campus is to provide an invigorating and creative environment which promotes independent thinking and introspection and leads the young students to become more aware of the consequence of their own actions. This allows them to weave a pattern of life which equips them to stand up to the many pressures of community living, to train them in the making of inferences in everyday situations, to help them derive more insight into their personal relationships and to arouse in them a sensibility of aesthetic experience.

Excellent facilities for the residence to a large number of students, co-curricular activities, sports and games, recreation, shopping, etc. have been provided to the students on campus. Special efforts are made to promote student-teacher interaction. Counselling Service has been set up to assist students in their initial adjustment, as well as in any difficulties, they may have during their stay at the Institute.

Students Activity Centre [S A C]
The Students' Activity Centre is the nerve centre of all student activities on the campus. With a moat on one side and a high stone-wall on the other, the Students' Activity Centre recalls to the visitors memories of an ancient fort. The Centre comprising a Club Building, Gymnasium Hall, Swimming Pool, Amphitheatre, Music Rooms, Hobbies Workshop and a large Dark Room, caters to various hobbies of the students. They have a place to paint, to sculpt or to tinker with the radio. There are committee rooms where they can hold formal or informal meetings and a large marble-floored hall for exhibitions. On the first floor of the Centre, students have facility to play billiards.

Its my job to sense the pulse of youth: Chetan Bhagat

New Delhi: For author Chetan Bhagat, who has explored themes like love, life in call centres and higher education in his novels, the ability to pick the pulse of the youth makes a bestseller.

Bhagat, in his fifth book Revolution 2020 that was released late last evening, tackles the issues of corruption in the not so famous institutions in India through his favourite theme- love.It is my job to sense what the youth are feeling, says Bhagat who quit his job as an investment banker to focus on his writing.The book, says Bhagat is a very specific love story and has not been inspired by the recent wave of protests across the world, including that by Anna Hazare.I began writing this book about two years ago and was actually quite nervous as I wondered if a story set in small town of Varanasi would appeal to readers. It was only later that Egypt happened and Anna Hazare happened and I felt my choice of theme was ok, says Bhagat.

The 37-year-old author who is an alumnus of IIT-Delhi had very recently on the microblogging site Twitter slammed Infosys chairman emeritus N R Narayana Murthys comments on the quality of engineers churned out by the premier IITs.

I have always been a little irreverent in my tweets. I didnt take his comment on my college lightly and so tweeted about it. I didnt realise ... but then later I apologised for my tweet, says Bhagat.

Pune University VC set to be new director of IIT Delhi

Pune University vice-chancellor RK Shevgaonkar is set to take over as the new director of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, picked by a human resource development ministry selection team. Shevgaonkars selection needs to be approved by President Pratibha Patil before he can be appointed, sources close to the VC said. An electrical engineer, Shevgaonkar taught at IIT Bombay for several years before taking over as VC of Pune University.
Shevgaonkar will replace outgoing director Surendra Prasad, who was also in the race for a second term at the helm of IIT Delhi. IIT Directors have traditionally been selected through a secretive internal process, in which an HRD ministry selection team invites recommendations from IIT directors and board chairmen.
This process was, however, slammed by the Madras High Court for creating conditions of conflict of interest.

IIT-delhi fest starts today

This is one of the much-awaited fests in the city. Rendezvous 2011, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhis annual fest, will witness a scale much grander than previous years. The fest, which will be flagged off on October 21 at 5pm, will come to a close on Monday. We are spending roughly R30-R35 lakh this year on the fest and are expecting large-scale participation from colleges within and outside Delhi, said Shashi Mathur, dean of students, IIT-Delhi.
Colleges from across Delhi University and other IITs from across India are expected to participate in the event. About 600 students from outside Delhi are expected, along with an equal number from within Delhi and NCR. There will be group dances, rock music competitions and a professional night that the students will participate in, added Mathur.
This year, the IIT has also collaborated with several embassies for renowned musicians from the respective countries to come and participate at Rendezvous. There is a Swedish music band which is going to participate. There will also be several performances by French and Mexican musicians, including a classical music recital by Shubha Mudgal, said Mathur

IIT student held for rape, murder

A Ph D student at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, was arrested on Sunday for allegedly raping and murdering a 21-year-old girl staying with his neighbour. He even partially burnt the body to make her death appear an accident. On Saturday evening, the police discovered the partially burnt body of Ramchanphy Hongray, a Manipuri whod been visiting her sister in Munirka, South Delhi, for the past month, in the kitchen of her flat.

Intensive questioning of the neighbours led to the arrest of one of them, Pushpam Kumar Sinha a day later.
Sinha, 34 — a B.Tech from the Regional Engineering College, Allahabad, an M Sc from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, working on his doctoral thesis at IIT, Delhi — knew the sisters socially and is alleged to have visited Hongray on Saturday evening and made advances. When she turned him down, he allegedly raped and later strangled her.
He knew the victim, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H G S Dhaliwal.
The police said they got suspicious as there was no cylinder blast and the landlord of the house did not hear anything.

IITs yet to be counted among top 100 world varsities, rues V-P

IITs may take credit for being the finest technical institutions in the country but Vice President Hamid Ansari today rued that they are yet to be recognised among the 100 best institutes world-wide. He said the institutes fare poorly in terms of international grading of academic output based on publication, patents applied for and granted and faculty citation.

No Indian university, not even an IIT, figures in the top 100 of Shanghai Jiao Tong University Institutes academic ranking of world universities or in top 100 of the 2009 Times Higher Education world university rankings, he said while delivering an address at the 41st convocation of IIT-Delhi.

He also expressed concern over IIT passouts gradually shying away from research work saying, Less than 15 per cent of
those graduating from IITs move towards teaching or research, whether in India or abroad.
We need in the first place to focus on accessible learning, affordable learning, and applicable learning. We need to close the gap between policy intent and actual delivery, the Vice President said.

Chairman of Board of Governors of IIT-Delhi R P Agrawal said that while the HRD Ministry have initiated a bouquet of measures to attract the best students to teaching profession, the society at large has to play a big role in restoring the status attached to the teaching profession.

Teacher first should become our national slogan. The society has to restore the traditional status and prestige as used to be attached to the teaching profession, he said.

1,371 students were awarded degrees at the convocation, including over 100 who were given doctorate degrees.
The Vice President also honoured eminent nuclear scientist Anil Kakodkar with the Degree of Doctor of Science for his contribution in the area of research and development of nuclear reactors.

Group Director-IT of Bharati Enterprises Jai Menon, a product of IIT-Delhi, was conferred the Distinguished Alumni Award by Ansari for his contribution as a corporate leader and researcher.

Plagiarism punch knocks out IITs

Independent cases of plagiarism have hit three different Indian Institutes of Technology with scientists accused of stealing credit for others research, shocking the academic community and raising concerns about scientific ethics. IIT Kharagpur physics professor R.N.P. Choudhary has lost his position as head of department after a junior faculty member A.K. Thakur accused him of not sharing research credit with him.

A research paper jointly authored by professors of IIT Delhi, Jamia Millia Islamia and the Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), published in 2009, has been retracted by editors of the journal Nuclear Methods and Instruments. The retraction notice says the authors have plagiarized parts of a paper that had already appeared in another journal.
Two review articles coauthored by a senior IIT Kanpur professor Ashok Kumar have also been retracted by the journal Biotechnology Advances.

All these cases, tumbling out one after the other, are shocking. I think they are symptomatic of larger questions of scientific ethics... the scientific community needs to introspect, a IIT Bombay professor said. Choudhary accused Thakur of levelling false allegations due to personal tensions. He did not contribute at all to the paper that he is claiming credit for, Choudhary told.

But IIT Kharagpur sources said a probe team found greater merit in Thakurs allegations than in Choudharys defense.
IUAC professor D.K. Avasthi accused his co-authors — Anup Ghosh of IIT Delhi, Pawan Kulriya of IUAC, Sharif Ahmed of Jamia and Shashi Chawla of Amity University — of publishing his name as an author without his consent. My contribution to the research was limited to the fact that my laboratory was used, Avasthi said.

IIT Kanpurs Kumar accused the editor of Biotechnology Advances of personal problems with him for the retraction of the article. Since the journal insisted, I agreed to a voluntary retraction. But... they have retracted the article unilaterally using inappropriate language in their retraction notice, Kumar said.

IIT Delhis multi-pronged support system for students in need

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi has a one-year preparatory programme for SC-ST candidates who are not able to clear the Joint Entrance Examination in the first attempt, a counselling cell with one full-time and at least one part-time counsellor, an English course for all students who n eed help in the language, faculty advisers assigned to students from the same departments and mentors from the third year who are like big brothers or sisters of other students from the same hostel. The prep course covers physics, chemistry, maths and English.

When the students come in the first year, in the orientation session, we talk about stress management, says Shashi Mathur, Dean (Students), IIT-D. The counsellors go to the hostels, and give talks on topics such as alcoholism, stress management, inter-personal and intra-personal relationships. For the last years, out of 100 hours of NSS, NSO and NCC work, we have made 10 hours of counselling mandatory. Rupa Murghai, counsellor, Student Counselling Service, IIT-D, says, A two-hour orientation session is compulsory for new joinees. There is also an orientation session for parents, which is compulsory. According to Murghai, about 80% of the parents attend the session when they come to drop their children at the time of admission. We also encourage peers to refer students for counselling.

The faculty are tasked with giving consultation time to their assignees outside classes. The course advisers, who are faculty from the respective departments, have a number of students -- about 10 -- attached to each of them. The faculty identifies students who are weak and give special attention to them. Murghai adds that 10 sessions by professors are a must for students with academic problems. Teachers are also asked to make referrals. We have a weak students review meeting twice a session in which I appeal to the faculty to look out for signs of trouble, she says.

As far as language skills are concerned, all incoming enrolees, regardless of their category, take a sort of screening test. All those (including the general category) who are not able to clear an English test have to take an English language course, says Mathur.

There is also an orientation session for parents, which is compulsory. According to Murghai, about 80% of the parents attend the session when they come to drop their children at the time of admission. We also encourage peers to refer students for counselling.

The faculty are tasked with giving consultation time to their assignees outside classes. The course advisers, who are faculty from the respective departments, have a number of students -- about 10 -- attached to each of them. The faculty identifies students who are weak and give special attention to them. Murghai adds that 10 sessions by professors are a must for students with academic problems. Teachers are also asked to make referrals. We have a weak students review meeting twice a session in which I appeal to the faculty to look out for signs of trouble, she says.

As far as language skills are concerned, all incoming enrolees, regardless of their category, take a sort of screening test. All those (including the general category) who are not able to clear an English test have to take an English language course, says Mathur.
