Filling up of IIT Posts with Foreign Faculty
The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are now free to recruit permanent faculty. However, to enable eminent academicians from foreign nations to serve in the IITs as faculty upto 10 per cent of their faculty strength, the Council of IITs has recently resolved to take up the matter with Ministry of Home Affairs for streamlining/liberalizing the procedure for allowing foreign faculty in IITs on a permanent basis.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development Smt. D. Purandeswari, in a written reply to a question, in the Rajya Sabha today.
