About IIT Kharagpur: Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) were established to cater to the country’s growing need for trained manpower with higher learning in science and technology. The Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, first of the chain of IITs, was established in 1950 in the idyllic and sylvan settings at Hijli in West Bengal. From a modest start in the dilapidated Hijli jail building, IIT Kharagpur has grown into one of the largest and most well-known technological institutes of the country. The handsome main building with its majestic tower was inaugurated in 1956. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in the first convocation in the same year said “here in the place of that Hijli detention camp stands this fine monument of India, representing India’s urges, India’s future in the making. This picture seems to me symbolic of changes that are coming to India”.
