In India, Most states provide Polytechnic or Diploma in respective engineering fields. These are generally studied after 10th grade. Diploma course is of 3 Years in most engineering fields, some of them being 3 and a Half year and a few being 4 Years.

After this, Students are given a opportunity to go to higher education (Under graduation) via a common entrance test called ECET ( Engineering Common Entrance Test), or LEET ( Lateral Entry Entrance Test) and other in different states. Students can take this exam if they successfully clear their diploma. Students are given admission into colleges according to their rank gained in the test. Students can get admission into all State level Universities and colleges which are affiliated to a university in their state. They are not given a opportunity to enter IIT's (Indian Institute of Technology) or NIT's (National Institute of Technology).

This is a problem for lakhs of students studying in polytechnic, who are aspiring to study further. I think everyone should be given a opportunity to enter IIT's and NIT's. These students have good technical knowledge in their respective fields and should be given a opportunity to study in these institutes.

This Problem can be solved, if there was a Common Entrance Test for all Diploma Students in India to get into Undergraduate education in their respective fields into IIT's and NIT's. So, People, Please help us gaining this opportunity to enter these premier Institutes by signing this petition.
