With extreme grief, we have to announce the sad demise of Prof. B B Bansal. He died today (Monday) morning after a long illness. For the past one month, he was ill and stayed at home. He was professor at dept. of Mechanical Engineering. During his 40 yrs career at our institute, he was also head of the Mechanical Engineering department and TPO (Training & Placement Officer).

His untiring efforts at the TPO ensured near perfect campus placements for our students during this tenure.

Prof. Bansal lead from the front. He was always active in alumni effort and was also a board member of our alumni association - ITBHUGlobal. He always championed for scholarships for poor students. He persuaded one of his batch mates (1967 mechanical) to donate $100K, the interest of which will provide free tuition and all expenses for 16 needy students each year, starting from incoming batch in next academic year. He had also discussed with two more of his batch mates to start similar scholarships for extremely poor and needy students.

The IT BHU community will miss this exemplary academic and a charismatic leader,

May his soul rest in peace.

It is a personal loss for people like me to whom he was not just a Professor at the Institute but a mentor and a guide in the life after it.

It is really sad to know about the demise of Prof Bansal. Who ever knows him will vouch for his dynamism and his willingness to help any one out of his way. I graduated from ITBHU in Chemical Engineering. I was not fortunate to have him as my teacher during my days at ITBHU.

In July 2009 when I went to ITBHU, I had the fortune of meeting Prof Bansal and interacting with him. He had just taken over as Director of University Staff College as an additional responsibility. He took the job really seriously and with in first week of taking over as Director he had launched a training program for the university teachers and was overseeing it with great enthusiasm.

I was in touch with him since then once in a while. I wanted to make a courtesy call to him one of these days but it is too late as he is no more with us. He is a great teacher and a great person with infectious enthusiasm about any thing he does.

May his soul rest in peace and May God give the courage to his family and friends to bear this irreparable loss.

I am saddened to hear this. He was a great mentor, professor and a person. I have lost one very important person in my life.

Sad new indeed. I remember Prof. Bansal as a very dynamic, hard working and kind person.

In 1994, Prof. Bansal had come to meet his classmate from BHU, then MD of Hughes (now Aricent), India and I had just joined Hughes that year. Prof. Bansal made sure to meet me as well. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and greet him.

May his soul rest in peace.

Really sad and unfortunate. In 2004 he took reins of Training & Placement office which was undergoing bad phase. And he did miracles when he became TPO.

very sad news and i was really taken aback by the unfortunate news.

I never got chance to interact with him personally but always knew him and heard a lot about him. He was always enthusiastic about any thing that was for the good of students and institute. Its a great loss to the institute as well as to the alumnus community.

may his soul rest in peace.

A very sad and unexpected news. I still remember my first interaction (which changed my course in BHU) with him during my 1st year. He was a great person who had the passion of excellance. He was perhaps last among the teachers who were always there for students. It is A great loss to the BHU family.

May his soul rest in peace.

This is sad. May the Lord Bless him. He was no-nonsense, and had a wonderful approach. It is a loss which is untimely.

During my stay at IT-BHU I closely interacted with him. When I along with few of my friends conceived the idea of a college magazine ‘Reverberations’, he was one of the profs who was with us in our journey. In 1997, he enlightened me with the concept of sustainability with reference to magazine. I also learned many things from him as convenor of Alumni Association/ Student Wing and Convenor of Sparsh’98.

Prof Bansal has profound impact on my life. I just can’t forget him throughout my life. He will be remembered by all of us as a warm individual and as a teacher-mentor who had taught us to reach for the stars.

With the demise of Professor Bansal, IT-BHU family has lost one of her passionate member and a teacher par excellence.

May his soul rest in peace

Dear Sir,

They say you are no more. They say you passed away. They say you won't be guiding us anymore.

Well, what do they know?

You're still there...pushing us to greater heights, questioning us, keeping us on the right & narrow path...you will be forever in our hearts!

But we'll miss your smile every once in a while.

This is a great loss only for Institute but for all of us. I remember meeting him when we were representing ITBHU in JEE counseling at IIT Delhi in 2004. He was the fountainhead of energy and was quite an inspiration. He worked tirelessly to make our campus placements 100% not in terms of quantity but in terms of quality as well. May his soul live in peace in the beautfull/mystic afterlife. Amen

A great loss to not only the Institute, but the entire Academic fraternity. He will always be remembered for his dynamism and out-of-the-box thinking.
May the almighty provide peace to the departed soul and strength to his family to tide over this great loss.

Its very sad to hear about Prof. Bansal's demise.
Though he did not teach us, our interactions during the Silver Jubilee re-union of our batch left a lasting impression of his drive & commitment to whatever he was involved in.
He would interact with all in our batch before & after the meet almost like a batch-mate, though he was more than 10 years senior to us.

May his soul rest in peace

It is very sad to hear this. Prof. Bansal was one of my favorite teachers. I was fortunate to study under him. His dedication towards student's education and career is commendable. This is a great irreparable loss to all of us.

I am a BHUIT graduate,class of 1978. I did not have the opportunity to be taught or even meet Professor Bansal, still I feel like I and the entire BHU-IT class of '78 owe Prof Bansal deep gratitude.

Prof. Bansal was always ready and available to help the alumni. When we were planning our 25th year anniversary, Dr. Bansal stepped right in and helped organize our visit to BHU. Over the years, he stayed in touch with us and we had come to see him as a friend and a guide.

No words are rich enough to truly comfort someone mourning loss of a family member but I think the thought that Dr. Bansal made such positive contribution to lives of many should ease the pain somewhat.

May god bless him for the good he did in this world.

I graduated in 1979 and did not have the benefit of being taught by Prof. Bansal. Neither did I have any interaction with him later. But the large number of times I have heard IT BHU students from the 1990s and 2000s mention his name makes me realize that IT BHU has lost a major presence on campus.

My condolences to the IT BHU family.

I am really grief striken having heard sad demise of our beloved Training and placement officer Prof bansal.During my MTech (2004-06)I accompanied my friends quite often to T and P office .I heard about his Dynamism in bringing Fortune 500 companies to campus.

May his soul rest in peace.


April 23, 2010 2:18 AM

No words can be enough to describe the contributions of Prof. Bansal to the IT community.

This is an unbearable loss.
I was one of the lucky few who did a BTech project under his guidance and also studied IC engines from him.
He was such a great teacher, mentor and a leader. He was so well connected with everyone that I never felt out of touch with him anytime

May his soul rest in peace!

May God give strength to his family and friends to bear this irreparable loss.

It is shocking to find this news - Prof. Bansal was one of the really dynamic teachers in the institute during my time, and even though I was not involved academically in any form with him, still remember him as a great leader and a help for students, esp on the placement front.

May his soul rest in peace - and may God be Ashish and the rest of the family.

This is very sad news. I remember, Prof Bansal had just taken over the TPO from his predecessor the year before I graduated and what a difference did he effect. He completely overhauled the TPO office into a very professional org and restored the respect of the institute in the eyes of companies coming to recruit. His efforts resulted in 100+% placement for ALL branches in my year. Hats off to him. May he rest in peace.
