Term of Membership

The term of members other than the ex-officio members shall be two years.

Procedures

The term ‘legislation’ used hereunder, refers to any rule framed by the AC.

  • Legislation may be added, amended or repealed at any meeting of the AC, provided that a written notice of the proposed action has been sent to each member of the AC, at least one week prior to the meeting at which modification of the legislation is sought.
  • All proposed legislation presented to the AC shall be accompanied by a statement of the purpose and the effect of the proposal. The statement shall also include the text of the new legislation to be adopted.
  • All modifications of the existing legislation and newly enacted legislation shall normally become effective on the first day of instruction in the next academic session, unless the AC specifies a different date. Any change in the legislation, existing or new, which requires approval of the Governing Council, shall become effective only after obtaining the approval of the Governing Council.
  • At any meeting of the AC, the decision of the AC must be formalized by means of a consensus or an affirmative vote.
  • The ruling of the Chairman AC, with regard to any question concerning procedures, shall be final.

Participation of Students in the AC

Any decision of the AC affects the students, favorably or unfavorably. It is, therefore, very important that the student representatives participate in the decision making process itself. The participation of students brings in the very important ‘students perception’ and the information that they have on various issues, while the decision is being taken. Moreover, student participation introduces transparency in the decision making process. Apart from arriving at better decisions with student inputs, it also provides the students with an opportunity to express themselves more lucidly and fearlessly, which is an important part of education.

In order to ensure that the participation of students in the decision making process is meaningful, it is very important that the student representatives are chosen with utmost care. A student representative on any committee must have a ‘good academic standing’ so that more meaningful decisions can be taken. Thus, a student representative on any committee must have a CPI better than 7.5 and must not have obtained F grade in any course. Further, a student cannot be nominated on any Committee of the Institute, if the student was involved in violation of the CCOS at any time. Moreover, any student can not be a student representative on two or more committees.

Standing Committees of the Academic Council (AC)

The Academic Council (AC) shall discharge its function with the help of a number of Standing Committees. The AC shall define and limit the duties and powers of its committees. The Standing Committees of the AC shall be constituted every second year, with the provision that the student representatives shall be nominated for a period of one year. The AC shall approve the Members nominated for each of its Standing Committees. Normally, each committee is responsible to the AC, which appoints it. However, the Director may assign additional duties to any one of the committees of the AC. In discharge of such additional duties, the committee shall be answerable only to the Director.

 

In addition to the Standing Committees mentioned below, the AC may constitute other Standing Committees, as and when the need arises.

Academic Council - Educational Policy Committee (AC-EPC)

The composition of the AC-EPC shall be as follows:

Chairman of the Academic Council:Chairman (Ex-Officio)
One Research ProfessorVice-Chairman & Member
One Distinguished ProfessorMember
One Industry Professor or a Professor with Sizeable Industry experienceMember
One Emeritus Professor or a Visiting ProfessorMember

The AC-EPC shall concentrate upon fundamental educational policy issues, for example, the desirability of starting a new academic Programme at the Institute. Such fundamental issues can be referred to this committee by the Governing Council, the AC, or any standing committee of the AC. The committee can also initiate a discussion on any issue, consistent with the overall goals of the Institute, on its own, and make appropriate recommendations to the AC for its consideration.

In addition to the above, the AC-EPC shall also identify distinguished personalities, both from within the country and outside, to whom the Honorary Degree of the Institute can be awarded. Such people must have made an indelible impression on the minds of persons working in areas related to the goals of the Institute. The Honorary Degree of the Institute can be awarded only after the Governing Council approves such a proposal of the AC.
