Of the 6,043 resources in 23 IITs, only 170 — 149 Scheduled Caste and 21 Scheduled Tribe — are from the saved classifications, Union Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar educated the Lok Sabha on Monday, because of a featured inquiry. This implies pretty much 2.8 percent of the individuals who instruct at IITs join through ‘share’.

There are 8,856 staff positions at the head designing foundations, and reservations are accessible for the section level posts of partner teachers and instructors, the House was informed.IIT Dhanbad has 35 resources from saved classes — the most among all the chief organizations — while IIT Mandi has none. IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras and IIT Kharagpur have 5, 12, 3, 15 and 8 workforce from these classes individually.
