The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) may soon prepare candidates for JEE who cannot afford or refuse to attend JEE Coaching through a series of lectures provided by teachers from IITs and Kendriya Vidyalayas. This lecture series will be known as 'IIT Pal'. The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is a well-known all India entrance exam for engineering aspirants and it is also considered as one of the toughest entrance examinations.
Another reason behind the initiative is to take aspirants away from the multi-million dollar coaching industry, where the parents are spending a fortune.
