So far, some 120 classmates of the 1974 graduating batch has come together and formed a private WhatsApp group sponsored by the IIT KGP Alumni Office. If you are a 1974 batch graduate and are not in the afforementioned WhatsApp group, please email dilipbhavsar@hotmail.com the following information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Email
  • Mobile number
  • Department and Degree

  • Current location – City, State, Country

This  group has facilitated the formation of smaller groups for hall and department level minglings, one-on-one reconnections, and many impromptu, local reunions. If you know a 1974 KGP graduate, please pass on this information and encourage them to respond. 

We call upon you to make small contributions to research and students!
