One of the significant reasons for IITs being institutions of excellence is the fact that they are able to attract the best and the brightest.
Another factor of equal importance is their ability to attract outstanding faculty. If the quality of students suffer as a result of admitting as much as 50 percent under the quota system, the general standard of students will come down and so the quality of faculty too.
