Selection of the director of IITs should be more serious, said Anil Kakodkar. (PTI)

Noted scientist and former Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) Anil Kakodkar said that IITs “should be left alone” to take their decisions.

Speaking over the controversy surrounding his resignation as chairman of the IIT-Bombay board of governors and the standing committee of the IIT Council, Kakodkar said,”My term was anyway over. I had just finished attending the last core meeting and wanted to move on. I had informed the ministry that I will not be available for the selection committee meeting on March 22.”

“Selection of the director of such institutes should be more serious. You can’t just talk to 36 people in one day and make a decision.

“I do not want to get into this now, it (MHRD) is the nodal ministry for this, but I personally feel that things should be done in a better way,” he said at an event here.

    Why not keep quiet and quit commenting, Sir. Previously IITs witnessed mive flow to West.for early redemption and giving lectures how to improve the nation. Let us privatize IITs and allow nature to take care of but the fees would jump thousand fold. Why the so called eminent scientists poke their noses even after retirement. These big scientists have reduced higher education as mediocrity. Are they not responsible?
