"In the interest of students, we have decided to hold aseparate exam. We will not be part of the joint test proposed bythe IIT council in 2013," said Dr YN Mohapatra, spokesperson,IIT-Kanpur senate, adding that the rules gave IIT senates the rightto decide their admission process and syllabi.

Sothe government shouldn"t take it lightly. The decision on JEEshould be taken after proper research and figures are taken intoaccount." said, IIT Kanpur Professor AK Chaturvedi. The Senate of IIT Kanpur said that the recent IIT Council proposalon admissions to IITs is academically and methodically unsound andin violation of the Institutes of Technology Act (1961) and IITKanpur Ordinances (Ordinance 3.2 (Admissions). Everyone felt that JEE"s new format was not good for eitherthe future of the students or the institute. Now, a panel will beconstituted and will outline our own admission guidelines.
Thisdecision will be communicated to the IIT council and other IITsenates," a faculty member who attended the meeting said.
