“The website allows for anyone to ask a question related to the institute, which will be answered within 48 hours by a team of alumni and student volunteers,” the institute informed. Questions will be answered via email or Whatsapp, and the new question will be displayed on the website for the benefit of others.


Calling upon JEE candidates to utilize this website, IIT Madras director V Kamakoti said, “Aspirants go to social media to find information but there is so much information that it is confusing. The need for a credible source of information is very high. I am thrilled that the passionate alumni of this great institute are providing this via AskIITM. I am confident this is the start of a journey not just for IITM, but for Indian education overall.”
