Indian Institute of Technology IIT, Kharagpur
The Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur, the first of the chain of six IITs, was established in 1950 to cater to the need for skilled manpower in the country. The idyllic, sylvan setting at Hijli was chosen to provide a cordon sanitaire to the budding engineers, where they could let their creativity run free. There was also an element of poetic justice in choosing a prison of yesteryears as the cosign for opening up new vistas to the future. From a modest start in the dilapidated Hijli jail building, IIT Kharagpur has been engaged in a virtually continuous process of development.
