Some comments to this posts:
I strongly disagree with the fact of converting the IIIT into an IIT coz what i persinally feel is that the name doesn't matter, we rather need to match the standards. Alumni will always prove to be the magic. Also including Computer Science and Electronic engg will help us make a strong alumni. Better faculty is a need.
