Despite the fact that the six new IITs have full 27% OBC reservation and they also offer popular streams such as computer science, electronics and mechanical engineering, students were not keen on joining the new IITS.Each of the existing seven IITs is rolling out 9% OBC reservation this year; each of the six new IITs have set aside 18 seats for OBC candidates as they are implementing the entire 27% reservation.Earlier in the day, students were informed about the various streams available at the IITs as also the kind of placements that took place in the last few years.
