    Five were from Textile, and One was from ChE.
  • In 1962, there was a lone female student for Textile.
  • The new Education System saw more female students.
  • There were about 45 female students in the 1st BE intake in 1964, and
    about 30 female students in the 2nd BE intake in 1964.
    G-Hall accepted most female students.
  • There may be more in the 1st BE intake in 1965.
