Is IIT-BHU offering a crash course on ‘Adarsh Bahu’?

NEW DELHI: Reports of Indian Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University offering crash course to become a certified ‘Aadarsh Bahu’ has been floating since the morning of 5th September.

The institute released a statement denying rumor of introducing course/training programme entitled “Daughter’s Pride – Beti Meri Abhiman” or an “Adarsh Bahu” or an ideal daughter-in-law.

Terming reports “misleading”, the Registrar of the Institute, SP Mathur, said IIT-BHU is not offering any such training or course on such topic.
