"We want an early conversion and end the confusion among the students and faculties," said one of the students.

The issue is to be taken up by the IIT council when it meets soon, the students said.

The students have been agitating for an IIT tag for their institute for the last couple of years.

Some of the MPs, including Inder Singh Namdhari, attended the dharna, the students said.

Sources, said the Council is in favour of forming a committee to examine afresh the proposal of ISM Dhanbad for conversion into IIT.
