Students of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have expressed anger over the rules of examination being conducted by the institute and termed it as not providing equal opportunities. Actually, this time the institute is conducting the exam in mixed form. According to this, the students have been given the facility to take the examination from both the institute and home. Terming this facility as discriminatory, many students have said that this rule of taking the examination in mixed form does not provide equal opportunity to the students. 

Students say that any students who come to the campus are being asked to inform their department and take the exam in the classroom itself. At the same time, the students who have not returned yet, are being given the facility to take the exam from home through an online medium. Which does not show equal opportunity. In this case, the students have also started an online petition campaign. So far more than 650 students have signed it. 

In the online petition, the students say that all the students have not come back, which means that many students will take the exam from home according to their convenience. A situation where 50% of the students will take the exam from home and asking the rest of the students to take the exam at the institute is a discriminatory decision. It is very important to have a good environment for the exam. The students said that they were informed about the examination by the institute in a very short time. By this time many students had got expensive tickets to go home. The institute should have already announced this. 

The institute denied the allegations
However, the authorities of the institute have vehemently denied the allegation of the students and said that this is only an examination in which students can take the examination sitting at home or by coming to the institute. There is no scope for any kind of discrimination in this. The academic dean of the institute, Shantanu Rai, said on the matter that there is no scope for discrimination or favoritism in the examination. As long as the students are on the campus of the institute, they should have no problem taking the exam and coming to class. Exams are only for the students and what is the evil in the classroom environment.
