Professor Subhasis Chaudhuri, director, IIT Bombay said that IITB does not want any of the JEE Advanced 2022 qualified girl students to miss an IIT experience. “First of all, I congratulate all girl students who have qualified in JEE (adv) 2022. I also congratulate their parents and family members in supporting these immensely gifted students in pursuing their dream to get educated in an IIT. However, we notice that despite doing very well in the admission test, some girl students do not take admission to IITs and join a local college instead (may be they do not want to travel the distance, may be family members are worried about staying in hostels, may be they think engineering is a male dominated profession, etc),” IITB director said in a Facebook post.

“As the Director of the top IIT, let me assure the girl students it is indeed a wonderful opportunity to get trained at the IIT system and provide the technical leadership in the country,” he added.

The professor went on to say that in case girl students have any doubt or reservation, IIT Bombay is organizing a special counseling session for all JEE Advanced 2022 qualified girl students (and their parents) tomorrow, September 20, 2022 at 11:45 pm.

“You may join the session, being organized by Professor Meera Raghunandan and her team, through the IIT Bombay Official youtube channel. Bring your queries and we will try to address them. Please let all students know of this opportunity. Needless to say, some part of the counselling would also be useful to even those girl students who missed the JEE Advanced, but are interested in engineering as a profession,” Chaudhuri further said.
