Own Your Hall Room

Share this:

The Office of the Alumni Affairs of IIT Kharagpur initiated a new campaign, “Own Your Hall Room,” with the intent of modernizing the infrastructure of the respective Halls of Residence for the students. The Hall Development Campaign is one of the most supported campaigns by the Alumni Fraternity of IIT Kharagpur. Renovation of the Halls which are a reminiscence of the old memories and the plinth of forming new ones, is a wonderful opportunity for the alumni to keep their signature on their very own campus. A donor will be recognized by an individual plaque that will enlist his/her name along with his/her respective batch and department which will be placed outside the room.

The former Director of IIT Kharagpur, Prof. Damodar Acharya is the flag bearer of this initiative who donated for renovating the hall rooms where he stayed during his stint as an IITian. Rahul Pakrashi, Prakash Kumar Chatterjee, Dilip Kumar Chanda, Sankar Lal Chanda, Subir Chowdhury, Dilip Bhattacharjee, Sreenivasulu Sreerama, Day Veerlapati, Sarbari Gupta, Amod Gujral, Arjun Malhotra, Rupesh Gupta, Sanket Sinha, Tribikram Kundu, Arup K Paul, Samuel Thomas, Ishrat Jameel and Anurag Agarwal have been the recent contributors of this campaign. Over the years, the institute has received unprecedented support from our esteemed alumni for various developmental projects. IIT KGP honours and respects the gratitude they show towards their Alma Mater.

Under this campaign, our very own Prof Jayanta Mukhopadhyay, Dean Outreach & Alumni Affairs, an Alumnus himself came forward and contributed towards his Alma Mater. He donated to renovate his Hall Room (LLR-C230) where he used to stay during his college days. He stayed in Lala Lajpat Hall of Residence from 1980-1989 completing his B.Tech, M.Tech and PhD in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering from IIT Kharagpur. Out of the 7 long years (1982-1989) of his academic stay at IIT Kharagpur, he stayed in this particular room which is C-230. Office of Alumni Affairs of IIT Kharagpur welcomes his contribution as a token of appreciation towards this Institute.
