Election Procedure

Annual Elections are generally held in February/March.

  • The current 1st, 2nd and 3rd year B.Tech. batches will take part in the elections. In case some of the elected members from the 3rd year go out for their B.Tech. projects (during their one-year term of service), the respective committees may co-opt (i.e. appoint) new members so as to maintain the total strength of the committee.
  • First year M.Tech., MS-IT, MS-ITA and M.Des. students will participate in the elections.
  • In case of MS-IT students, their membership will be valid only as long as they are on campus. There will not be any replacement when they leave for their internships.
  • Elections for all Committees will be done using a Preferential Voting system: For a Committee with ‘n’ members from a constituency, every voter in that constituency will vote for ‘n’ persons, specifying these names in order of preference. In case of only one member from a constituency, the mode will automatically become a simple majority vote.
  • A person can contest in elections for the next term while holding a post in the current term, as long as he/she satisfies the respective eligibility criteria.
  • A person cannot hold more than one post in a term. A person can stand for only one post in an election.
  • Anyone who is not on either academic or disciplinary probation can contest in the elections for all the committees, except for the academic committee (which needs additional criteria listed below).
