On Sunday, with the Silver Jubilee batch of 1995 pledging Rs. 20.3 crore towards the Legacy initiative, IIT Bombay held its Alumni Day celebrations in virtual mode. A Legacy Project is a project embraced by the batch to mark its Silver Jubilee anniversary, to strengthen the Institute and its associates, as a way to give back to the alma mater and leave behind a lasting legacy and commemoration of their silver jubilee reunion.
The event witnessed an MoU exchange with Ashank Desai, an IIT Bombay alumnus (Class of 1974) and founder, Mastek/Majesco Vice-Chairman and MD, for a financial donation of Rs. 15 crore to the IIT Bombay Center for Policy Studies.
I am pleased to contribute to the direction of IIT Bombay to make the Center for Policy Studies a leading policy institution. This center will contribute to the need for talent, study and guidance from India to achieve a holistic approach to policing.
