IIT-Indore asks students for donations

IIT-Indore asks students for donations

The management of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Indore has asked its students and their families to mobilise funds so that the construction work at its campus can be completed after the premier institute allegedly ran out of funds from the government.

Established in 2009, IIT-Indore began functioning from a temporary building and moved to a new one from 2012 even though construction work was incomplete and remains so.

Classes are held in the under-construction buildings that have leaky roofs and sparked fear for the safety of the students at the elite technology school. Crucial equipment, like the super computer and radio telescope, have been packed and locked for the fear of getting damaged.

The deputy registrar Pradeep Agrawal has written a mail to students, their families and friends to pool in to speed up the construction work.

“In a move to mobilise resources for fastening the process of development of infrastructure and other purposes at IIT-Indore, donations are welcomed… Donations made to IIT-Indore are 100% exempted from income tax,” Agrawal wrote.
