Dear [first_name],

IIT-Kharagpur has been awarded the status of "Institution of Eminence" (IoE) by the HRD Ministry. Congratulations to KGP on earning this honor!

IIT-KGP is in the process of building a 3-story Food Court at the Alumni Circle, where the 1970 ADDA and Alumni Clock Tower are located. This will make a popular hang-out spot for students, faculty, and staff. The cost is projected to be Rs. 6.56 crore (approximately $1 million USD). We will share more information about this project as it becomes available.
