IIT-Gn: Girls awarded both gold medalsbut only 10% of new batch
Though two girls were awarded the gold medal for the BTech and MTech programs of the graduation batch, only 10% of the incoming students at IIT-Gn this year will be female.
The President’s Gold Medal in both BTech and MTech programmes were bagged by girls this year. While Shruti Jain was awarded the President’s Gold Medal for BTech, Shivani Rani bagged the President’s Gold Medal for MTech.
However, out of the 134 incoming students at the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn), only 14 are female! Last year this number was even lower, with 9 girls out of a batch of 120.
