Gender Restriction for Mining Courses

Section 46 (1) of the Mines Act, 1952 states that
“No woman shall, not with standing anything contained in any other law, be employed
(a) in any part of a mine which is below ground,
(b) in any mine above ground except between 6:00 and 19:00 hrs.”
Hence, female candidates are not admitted to Mining Engineering or Mining Machinery Engineering at ISM, Dhanbad. The corresponding courses at IIT Kharagpur and IIT (BHU) do NOT have such a restriction.

The eligibility of candidates belonging to “third” gender will be notified later.
