    I wish to bring to your notice a correction in the name of the institute “IISC (indian Institute of Space Technology Trivendrum)” is wrong, it should be “IIST (Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, Trivendrum)”. Apart from that your article is quite informative.

    Thanking you

IIT level should given to the student who passed with this institute.This is unjustification with the students . Govt., BHU and IITs should think and try to give a level of IIT to this institute
