Update on the appointment of a new Director at IIT Kharagpur

Dear Kgp-ians,

The IIT Foundation would like to thank the alumni who have expressed a strong desire to resolve the unacceptable delay in the appointment of the Board of Governors (”BOG”) nominated Director of IIT Kharagpur, Dr. Partha Pratim Chakrabarti (”PPC” to many of his friends and students), caused by the protracted CoalNet inquiry.

Your concerns are being addressed by the Board of Governors, and an extraordinary meeting of the BOG was conducted on March 8, 2013 to address this issue.

The IIT Foundation will be keeping the alumni appraised of developments in this matter, and we request you to continue to express your concerns at the following on-line forums:
