Speaking to The Indian Express, Subhasis Chaudhuri, director, IIT Bombay, said, “Sometimes it has been observed that girls – even after getting an IIT seat – do not join for reasons such as the institute being far away from their home. Parents think it is better to go to an institute which is nearby. We want to change this. If a Mumbai girl, for example, gets a seat in IIT Kharagpur; she should take it”.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay will hold a one-of-its-kind virtual counselling session for female candidates  – along with their parents – who have qualified the JEE (Advanced) exam in order to encourage them to not leave their IIT seats.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Subhasis Chaudhuri, director, IIT Bombay, said, “Sometimes it has been observed that girls – even after getting an IIT seat – do not join for reasons such as the institute being far away from their home. Parents think it is better to go to an institute which is nearby. We want to change this.  If a Mumbai girl, for example, gets a seat in IIT Kharagpur; she should take it”.

The virtual counselling session will take place soon in association with the gender cell of IIT Bombay. “We will be sharing a link with all the girls in order to have a talk with them. If they qualify and bag a seat in any IIT, they should take it. In fact, girls also have supernumerary seats, which is to their advantage. They should make use of it,” Chaudhuri said, adding that there has been a remarkable growth in the number of female candidates in the top 100 JEE (Advanced) qualified candidates this year.

“Last year there was only one girl. This year, there are seven,” he said.
