Sibal dispels fear over IIT faculty joining foreign institutions

Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal on Friday said the teachers are patriotic enough not to sell their conscience for a little bit of money, thereby dispelling fears about Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) faculty joining foreign institutes.


New Delhi, May 21 : Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal on Friday said the teachers are patriotic enough not to sell their conscience for a little bit of money, thereby dispelling fears about Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) faculty joining foreign institutes.

"I know my faculty is patriotic and passionate about India and I know my faculty will not sell their conscience for a little bit of money," said Sibal.

"Had it been the case, IIT teachers would have been picked up by the elite Stanford and Harvard University even today. But none have gone," he added.

Sibal said faculty in IITs and Indian Institute of Management (IIM)s get good exposure, which may not be available in other institutions.

The attrition rate in IITs is zero. This is because the opportunities and benefits available in IITs cannot be matched anywhere else," said Sibal.

"The kind of conferences and exposure you get at the international level, you won't get in a private university, foreign or otherwise. You even can do independent consultants and earn money," he added at the seminar organized by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).

On apprehension that foreign institutions may compromise with quality, Sibal made it clear that they will be subjected to the same accreditation and assessment norms as domestic institutions.

"Foreign institutes will be subjected to the same laws as IITs and other institutes here abide to. The law does not allow any discrimination," he said.
