According to Biswajit Khan, The population of India has grown 3 times when IITs were conceived and set up in Nehru era. So why not increase the number of IITs also? To overcome shortage of faculty, he suggests a generous use of blended learning with some courses taught by best IIT professors with students from all IITs linked up via internet. He would like IITs to allow experienced IITians who want to come back and teach at IITs to do so. He wants the insistence on PhD etc to be removed to overcome the faculty shortage.
