After third round of counselling, IIT - Delhi has registered nearly 30 % more female students this year.
While 1,018 women enrolled themselves in IITs this year as against 840 last year -- an increase by 21%, IIT Delhi had organised an on-campus interaction with the girl students who had cleared the JEE Advanced.
“A Webpage was designed and kept at our IITR server to help women candidates. Also, a helpdesk was initiated too. The female faculty participated enthusiastically and mobile numbers of faculty from various departments were made available to all female candidates for further enquiries,” said Prof. Ajit K, Chaturvedi, IIT Roorkee director, told Hindustan Times.
There will be seven rounds of counselling.
The final round of reporting will be held on July 22.
