Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal Wednesday skipped the meeting of IIT Council convened by him to discuss the proposed common entrance test after opposition from some of the premier engineering institutions.

Sibal, who chairs the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) Council, did not turn up for the meeting on Thursday afternoon, informed sources said.

Several IITs are opposing the proposed common entrance test, which he mooted. It merges IIT Joint Entrance Exam (IIT-JEE) with the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) and includes a fixed weightage for school board exams.
