  1. I read Dr. Sahadeb Banerjee as the recipient of First Ph.D in IIT system, and then next sentence is First Ph.D in IIT is conferred to legendary Dr. Mani Bhowmick. Can you please clarify after going through the record… who is the real First Ph.D in IIT. I know well that Dr. Banerjee (late)was a Legend in Polymer/Rubber Technology in Asia. He was born and brought up in a small village in the district of Bankura.

      We have edited the statement. The first student who got PhD awarded was Dr. Bhaumik. Dr. Banerjee was a faculty member at IIT KGP who received a PhD.

    I loved to read this article. My own grandfather was one among the first batch of IIT KGP students (1951-55). As such, I am eager to see the list of the first batch students. Can you please provide me with it?
