IIT Roorkee to Conditionally Readmit Expelled Students
Bringing relief to 71 students, IIT Roorkee has conditionally readmitted the ones it had expelled for underperforming
IIT Roorkee has decided to grant conditional readmission to all 71 students who were expelled by the premier institute for underperformance last month.
The decision to grant readmission to the expelled students with some stringent pre-conditions was taken last night by the institute’s senate, the Dean of Students Welfare D K Nauriyal said.
“Taking a lenient view, the senate after considering all aspects of the situation especially the future of the students took the decision,” the Dean said.
The conditions for readmission put forward by the Senate include starting afresh from the first semester, scoring at least five Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) or more in both first and second semester exams, not failing in any of the subjects and 75% attendance in all subjects, Nauriyal added.
The relief comes to students nearly a month after their expulsion when the students were expelled by the institute for scoring less than five CGPA in their first and second semester B Tech exams, making it the first IIT in the country to resort to expulsions on such a wide scale.
