ITBHU to IIT -- almost done

I got to know yesterday that the cabinet has 'in principle' approved the conversion of ITBHU to an IIT [and the creation of several new ones etc.].

You can get the links for the official press releases, as well as follow the discussion at this IIT-conversion related post on the ITBHU Alumni website.

I, for one, would hold off on calling us an IIT just yet. Sadly, I have been badly burnt multiple times on this, and would wait for the proverbial cup to get to the proverbial lip :).

Cautiously optimistic,


  1. Funny thing, they are calling it "IIT-BHU" and not "IIT-Varanasi" as we had expected all along...

  2. I would just say .. Miles to go before we sleep :)
