New Delhi: After the much heated debate over the Common Entrance Test (CET) for the IITs, NITs, IIITs and other central engineering colleges, the government has finally decided to regulate single entrance tests without any further delay. The government has geared up to establish coordination and agreement between the different institutes and colleges.
 
According to sources, majority of colleges have agreed upon the government’s proposal for a single entrance test but a few of the old institutes have expressed their disagreement on the issue.

To settle the differences between various institutes a meeting has been scheduled for April 11 between HRD Minister Kapil Sibal and presidents and directors of all the seven oldest engineering colleges. This will be followed by another meeting on April 14 between IIT and NIT council members and to reach an agreement regarding the entrance tests.

Notably, the government’s suggestion of conducting single entrance test was proposed for the convenience of the students with no intention of interfering with the administration of the respective colleges.
