Why this petition matters

Started by A VITian

Vellore Institute of Technology is one of the most prominent technical universities in India. As per the NIRF rankings, VIT is the 12th best engineering institute in India.

As students, we expect the institute to have an efficiently working website for conducting important events for its students. VIT is popular for the Fully Flexible Credits System (FFCS) facility it provides to its students. With FFCS, students have the option to set a personalized timetable and select their desired faculty for their upcoming semester.

With a particular day allotted for FFCS and a first come first serve method applied, it is obvious that thousands of students will try to log in at the same time. Despite being aware of this fact, VIT takes zero steps to make the process smooth and comfortable for the students.

The freshers had their first FFCS session today. But due to the server not responding the whole day for a majority of students, a lot of time was wasted. Adding to the students' misery, no immediate action was taken by the officials despite receiving hundreds of complaints from the pupil.

As a result, numerous students had to devote more than 10 hours just to set their timetable for the upcoming semester.
The most unfortunate part was that a major chunk of the students could not hold on to their desired teachers and time slots.

This petition is released with an intent to make a change. A process will be initiated only if every affected student raises his or her voice through this petition.
Do sign this petition and share it as much as possible. Every VITian's voice has to be heard by the Chancellor of VIT, Dr. G. Viswanathan!
