For many dedicated alumni, “giving back” isn’t really tied to a cause — it’s simply part of their lifelong relationship with their alma mater. IIT Bhilai is glad to share that Ketan Mishra, an alumnus of the pioneering batch of IIT Bhilai has set up a donor award – the ‘Gayatri Devi Leadership Award.’ This is the first award that has been instituted by the alumni of the institute. This award has been set up in the name of the donor’s mother Smt. Gayatri Mishra. The purpose of this award is to encourage students to demonstrate leadership. The recipient will be awarded a gold medal, a cash prize of Rs. 11,000 along with a certificate.
