It has been accepted and was also announced in the alumni meet of the association held in Mumbai on March 10. Shiv Sena leader Uddav Thackerey was present as chief guest on the occasion.

Chronicle will be published every 2 months from now
@ May 30, 2013
    view in one page and print

 Since its inception in May 2005, Chronicle was published every month. Archive issues can be found at:


However, due to increased workload and expanding alumni association activities, it is not possible to continue publishing it each month. Hence it is decided to publish it every two months from now on. Some additional issues may be published in-between two months period. We hope our readers understand the reason behind the change. We shall try to cover all the news and articles in Chronicle as we have done so far.

The issues to be published now on are: January, March, May, July, September and November (plus some additional issues).

April 2013 issue was not published. The next issue will be July issue, to be published before the end of July.

The Chronicle is the voice of our IIT-BHU community. We need more news, reports, photos, etc. from students, faculty and alumni. Please send your news at: chronicle@itbhuglobal.org.

Deadline for submitting articles is 15th of publishing month.

Since we plan to publish chronicle issue by the end of assigned month, we request our readers to send articles latest by 15th. Articles received later than that date will be published only if time permits. Please add “for chronicle” in the subject line.

Chronicle needs volunteers (students/alumni) who can help us in publishing the Chronicle magazine.
