IITs gain 4 siblings and 7% more seats this year

With the 4 new IITs in Goa, Palakkad, Tirupathi and Chhattisgarh ready to take in students from this year, the total number of seats available has risen 7% to 10,500.

IIT Jammu and Dhanbad will provide a similar, if not larger, hike in total seats next year.

Did you know that, on average, an IIT has been created every year since 2000?
