Greetings from members of The Benares Alumni Association of IIT (BHU)

You will be happy to learn that your Alma mater is completing 100 years of
Engineering Education at Banaras Hindu University in 2019. To commemorate our glorious journey during this period, your Institute is organizing Centenary Celebration & Global Alumni Meet during February 8 to February 11, 2019 in a befitting manner.

In this regard, we wish to inform you that the Benares Alumni Association (BAA) was formed to interact and coordinate with all Alumni Associations of IIT (BHU), in India and abroad. We are proud that responsibility of organizing the “Global Alumni Meet-2019” in campus has been entrusted to The Benares Alumni Association of IIT (BHU).

On behalf of the Association, it is our pleasure to invite all Alumni of BENCO, MINMET, TECHNO, IT-BHU and IIT (BHU), Varanasi, their spouse and family members in this historic event of Centenary Celebration and Global Alumni Meet, in the great campus of Bharat Ratna Pt. Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji.

The physical registration of Alumni will start in the morning of February 8, 2019 followed by several interesting Academic, Cultural, and Social events including visits of Ghats, Temples, Ganga Arti etc. during this period. The Centenary Celebration will be organized on 10th February, Basant Panchami Day, by the Institute. The detailed program will be communicated to you in due course of time.

Friends, the month of February happens to be very busy with huge influx of tourists. Kumbh Mela at Allahabad may also add further inflow in Varanasi and it may be difficult to get accommodation in hotels.

Therefore, early booking of accommodation by you is suggested. However, only a limited number of rooms are available in the Institute Guest House. We are also making efforts to arrange rooms in a newly built IIT Hostel, University Guest House, Marwari Sewa Sangh etc. Further, Varanasi has a large number of hotels of all categories, located near BHU Campus, the details of which are available on web-sites and can be booked online. The city is well connected by Air and Rail with almost all important cities of India.

The Registration fee for Alumni is Rs. 6,000/- + Rs.1,500/- for each accompanying family member(s). For Alumni from abroad, the Registration is US $250 per person and US $100 for each accompanying family member(s). It would include breakfast, lunch, dinner, kit, and transport within campus and other hospitality during 4 days of stay. You are requested to register online through our website or by paying the Registration amount in the name of Global Alumni Meet of IIT (BHU) in ICICI Bank, Saving Account No. 031001009704 (IFSCode: ICIC0000310) directly. For any queries regarding registration, kindly contact Sri Man Mohan Gupta, Treasurer.

We once again extend invitation for this historic Gala event of your Institute and assure you of our full support and co-operation so that your stay is enjoyable, comfortable and memorable too.

With kind regards,

Nitin Malhotra
