IIT Kanpur has terminated sixty students from the courses they were pursuing for not performing satisfactorily despite the warning.
Now IIT’s are more Stricter than ever before. Students will have to study harder to stay in IIT.
The Dean of Academics, Dr. Neeraj Misra said the termination is normal and a lawful practice. We generally give Weak students enough opportunities to improve their performance. In case, they fail to make any improvement, a strict action will be taken against them.
Forty-six undergraduate students, eight postgraduates, and six research scholars were among the terminated. A few of them are in their final year also.
The students were given an opportunity for mercy appeal.But no concession through mercy appeal was given to the very weak students.
The institute’s administration has informed the parents and the guardians of the students about their termination and has taken necessary steps to ensure that the upset students do not take any extreme steps, sources said.
