IIT Directors Appointment: The posts of Directors are lying vacant for months in eight IITs which give better engineers to the country. Despite the interviews of candidates for these posts, the government has not yet been able to appoint directors. The selection process is going on for a long time but still these posts are lying vacant. Many IITs are waiting for recruitment on these posts for a long time.
The condition of IIT Bhubaneswar is astonishing
It has come to know about this delay that because the government has failed to select the candidates. Therefore the files related to the appointments have not been sent to the President. On the other hand, officials say that, despite the lack of statutory backing for such interventions, it is the Prime Minister’s Office that is deciding high ranking academic appointments under the government. Officials claim that the biggest reason for delay in appointment of IIT directors is PMO’s failure to find ideologically suitable candidates.
