    Irani told Parliament that both IITs and NITs have started a few activities to minimize dropouts. In the event of IITs, there is a counsel who screens the scholarly advance and exhorts understudies about their scholastic execution. Advancement of such aspirants is consistently checked through class tests, lab tests, assignments, mid-term, end-term and supplementary examinations. She said extra classes are orchestrated scholastically weaker aspirants, now and again amid summer excursions. IITs have begun aspirants mentorship programs, peer task learning, guided advancement plan and so on. At that point there are general directing classes to de-stress the understudies.

    To capture dropping out of aspirants, NITs have the procurement for extra training for powerless aspirants, exceptional drilling for SC/ST aspirants, two mid-term examinations per scholastic year, quarter classes and unique examinations, procurement of coach watchman and motivational addresses.
