A C Pandya Student Center at Department of Agricultural Engineering donated by Vinod Gupta ('67)

At IIT Kgp: Each department has a lot of students. These students have nowhere to sit, hangout, or have a snack or tea. This student center will meet the need at my department in memory of its first head, Professor A C Pandya.

Our hope is that every department at IIT Kgp can have their very own student center. The cost is approximately Rs 70 Lakhs. If you or a group from your department is interested in building a student center in your department, please send us an email at info@iitkgpfoundation.org.
