About IIT Kharagpur

Genesis: Kharagpur - a sleepy town tucked away in the eastern corner of India, famous in colonial times as home of the longest railway platform in the world - was chosen by a newly independent nation in 1951 to witness an epic experiment: the creation of an Institute of Technology at par with the best in the world.
