The alumni association of IITs opposed the Yash Pal recommendations on introduction of new non-technical courses such as medicine and humanities at IITs. This was said in a meeting held by the alumini in New Delhi to discuss measures to sustain and expand the brand value of IITs considering the economic slowdown and its effect on the recruiting companies.

The group voiced its concern over the growing pressures from the political community for faculty quota, student quota, more IITs and were of the view that new recommendation would further deter IIT's brand value. They flagged the faculty crunch at the insititues in the current running courses and opined that it would be meaningless to start new courses without quality faculty in the respective area of study.
