Few students passing out from the Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH) get selected in the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). The overall share of state students in the IITs remains between three to four per cent, data over five year period reveals.

A report compiled by the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Haryana, analysed the data of admissions into 23 IITs across the country from 2017-2021 that includes courses BTech, BS, BArch, dual degree of BTech-MTech, dual degree of BS-MS, integrated MTech, and integrated MS.

The percentage of Haryana students getting selected in the IITs is between three to four per cent. Haryana ranks eighth to ninth among all the states and UTs for sending students to the IITs.

The top five states whose students are getting admission in the IITs are Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

In 2017, 441 Haryana students got selected in IITs, which was 4.1 per cent of total seats, with the state ranking eighth in the country.

Next year, the number of state students rose to 475, which was 4 per cent of the total IIT seats while the state’s ranking remained at eighth among all the states and the UTs.

In 2019, there were 470 Haryana students in IITs, which was 3.5 per cent of the total seats, while the state ranked ninth overall. In 2020, the number jumped to 552 (3.5 per cent of total seats), while the ranking stayed at ninth.

In 2021, the number of Haryana students in IITs further rose to 567 which was 3.5 per cent of the total seats while the state’s ranking remained at ninth.

Majority of Haryana students, who got selected in IITs during 2017-21 are from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

“No doubt that the percentage of students selected from BSEH (state board) has increased over the years that is 3.2 per cent in 2017 to 5.8 per cent in 2021, yet the overall percentage is still very low,” says the report.

The percentage of student from the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), who got admission in the IITs, was zero in 2017, 0.4 per cent in 2018, 0.4 per cent in 2019, 1.1 per cent in 2020, and 0.5 per cent in 2021. This percentage is even lower than Haryana board students.

“Admission into the IITs requires coaching. Students pursuing studies through the BSEH may not be taking tuition. This aspect needs to be investigated. Super-100 programme of the Haryana Government must be studied and expanded so that more students could be sent to the IITs,” said an education expert.
