Following media reports on courses provided by the Indian Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University on ideal daughter-in-law, the institute has denied terming reports “misleading”. In a statement, the institute has said they do not offer any course/training programme entitled “Daughter’s Pride – Beti Meri Abhiman” or an “Adarsh Bahu”.
Dr SP Mathur, Registrar of the Institute, said that no such training or course available or planned in the IIT-BHU on such topic. As per some reports, the institute in alliance with a start-up Young Skilled India is launching such programmes that are meant to train unmarried women as ideal daughter-in-laws.
This three-month crash course is specially designed for new brides and it aims to develop their inter-personal skills and how to deal with the new family members.
Mathur clarified that ‘Young Skilled India’ is a private start-up and IIT-BHU don’t have any relation to the training programme planned by this startup in collaboration with a private body of the city.
