Latest update (dated 17 November, 2015):

Dear Chief Functionaries of Alumni Associations,

This has reference to teleconference organized by AIBA at 20:00 hrs. On November 16th, 2015, wherein Shri Debashish Bhattacharya proposed to reconsider registration fee for additional family members. Today in a brisk meeting with Hon. Director, Chair Alumni Meet Committee and Secretary Alumni Meet I discussed the idea.

Hon Director generously agreed to the idea of attracting family members to join us in the meet. We decided that only Rs. 500/= per additional immediate family member will be charged apart from the Original Registration fee of Alumnus/Alumna concerned. The Alumni Meet Secretariat will inform all those who have already registered. They will modify the provisions in the format as well. Kindly inform fellow Alumni/Alumnae on rolls of your Association. 

Kindly register and encourage others.

TNN | Sep 18, 2015, 10.08AM IST

VARANASI: After getting the status of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in 2012, Banaras Hindu University's technology wing, IIT-BHU will host its first ever alumni meet from December 30 to January 1.

The authorities are all busy chalking out elaborate plans and making initiatives to invite ex-students from across the globe and honour them.

An 'alumni portal' has also been developed for one-time registration wherein the details of all former students will be stored in the 'alumni database', for signing up to the impending 'Alumni Meet'. The online registrations for the meet has started from September 15.

"The three-day meet which will begin from December 30 and over 1,000 ex-students are expected to join the meet," member secretary of the meet, Ashok Kumar told TOI on Sunday. The tagline affixed to the meet is 'Reconnect. Reminisce. Celebrate!', he added.

Divulging into the details of the upcoming meet, Kumar said, "We have come up with this online brochure on our portal which emphasizes on meeting your batchmates, rekindling the good old days and has a special mention of 'Limbdi Corner ki Chai' which holds a special place in every IIT-BHU student's heart." A tentative programme list has been chalked out which includes quite a lot of interactive sessions and lectures by noted alumni members, he said, adding that, "We are aware of the busy schedule of those ex-students serving various organizations in different parts of the country, yet are hopeful that they do not miss this nostalgic visit back to their campus."

"Although we have published all the details online at www.alumnimeet.iitbhu.ac.in as most of our ex-students keep themselves updated by checking details online, yet for those who are not more of net savvy, efforts are being made to contact them via e-mails and register alumni settled abroad as well as other places," he said.

As per the online portal, the features of the meet include campus tour with updates about recent infrastructure development, departmental visits and interaction with professors and faculties of concerned department, exploring the holy city and a visit to Sarnath for reviving the city experience and a series of cultural programmes. The registration charges are Rs. 5,000 per visiting alumnus and Rs. 3,000 per accompanying person.
