IIT to Offer 779 More Seats for Women Candidates

National Edu News

New Delhi: The Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) will add 779 more seats exclusively for women applicants in the new academic session this year.

In January 2017, when the decision was in its nascent stage, was hugely applauded. To address the issue of the decrease in women students in the institutes a panel recommended for the reservation.

The decision was taken after sub-committee of the Joint Admission Board (JAB) in 2017 observed that every year enough number of women clear JEE (Advanced) but the enrolment rate of women candidates was much lower.


IIT Kharagpur: 113 seats

IIT-Dhanbad: 95 seats

IIT-Kanpur: 79 seats

IIT-BHU: 76 seats

IIT-Roorkee: 68 seats

IIT-Delhi: 59 seats

IIT-Bombay: 58 seats

IIT-Guwahati: 57 seats

The decision was taken last year by the IIT Council, but a final number of supernumerary seats have been announced now.
