Hundreds of students reached the campus on Wednesday to enroll in B.Tech and other courses in the session 22-23 in IIT ISM. Parents were also present with them. The reporting date for the students was fixed on Wednesday. For the convenience of new students coming to Dhanbad from different states of the country for the first time, bus facility was provided by IIT Management at the main parking place of Dhanbad railway station from morning. Students directly reached the Student Activity Center. There after physical registration, the students were sent to Jasper and the girls were sent to Rosaline Hostel.
This time there has been a slight change in the rules of enrollment in IIT ISM. Earlier, the students used to get the documents checked only during reporting. After that allotment of hostel was done. Then there was the introduction session, but this time the students are being sent to the hostel along with reporting. After that there will be an introduction session and finally the documents will be scrutinized. 1,125 seats have been allotted in IIT ISM for enrollment. On behalf of the management, separate teams have been constituted for nomination and the responsibility has been entrusted to them. After coming to the campus, the students have been asked to take rest in the hostel.
Campus tour will be done today
The students who have enrolled will be given a tour of the campus on Thursday. On October 27 and 28, an orientation program will be organized for the students in Penman Auditorium by dividing them into two groups. In this program new UG students will be given information about various facilities and educational activities in the institute. Documents will be scrutinized on October 29 and 30. Classes for students will start from October 31.
Changing the route of the train increased the problems of the students
The problem of students coming to Dhanbad to take admission in IIT ISM has increased. Due to the overturning of goods train near Gurpa station of Dhanbad railway division, the route of many trains has been diverted, due to which about 150 students who took enrollment could not reach on time. However, for those students, the reporting time has been given by the management till Thursday. Meanwhile, till late Wednesday night, students from Asansol continued to reach ISM by vehicle. 905 students who took admission in IIT Dhanbad on Wednesday were sent to Jasper and Roslyn hostel after reporting.
