Hyderabad: No matter Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani has drawn a lot of flak after directing to IITs to teach Sanskrit, the academicians see no disadvantage with it as they believe that studying ancient scriptures and Vedas will help students in their research area.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi Director, Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, backed the idea saying it would be beneficial to students, especially from electrical, mechanical, civil and metallurgy courses.

“Sanskrit offers a better proposition for engineering students and it will help them in their existing study and research areas,” he said.
