Instead of setting 8 new IITs', I (an IITan) want Mrs. Smriti Irani to focus on facilities and faculties of existing IITs'.

This issue is most important because IITs carry brand name globally. Even in existing IITs, there is lack of good faculty. There is very poor research facilities and many other things. New IITs set up in 2009 are already struggling with lack of faculty and other key issues. Setting up a new set of IITs will only add to the problems already faced by the hallowed institutions. I am an IITan, and from last 2 years I have been watching structure of IITs very closely. Already there is not a single IIT in first 100 world ranking.
So I request her if she wants to set up new engineering colleges, then set them but brand name of IIT should not be malign and I want her to focus on exiting IITs.
Government has set up from 2009, 8 new IITs, 10 new NITs, and 6 IIMs, which are facing so much problems. Also the situation of research scholars is pathetic.
Even after coming to IITs after clearing JEE exam, students are losing interest in study due to bad faculty and and not much study friendly environment. We know India is over populated country, but if she wants something in return from IITs except lucrative job giving institutions, then she should certainly concentrate on 'quality' insted of quantity.
If you think in similar way, please sign this petition. It is not just calling people from IITs to sign this petition but also all young pepole who thinks this is a bad idea to set up IITs in every state neglating the basic needs.
