The event witnessed exchange of MoU with Ashank Desai, an IIT Bombay alumnus (Class of 1974) and founder, Vice-Chairman and MD of Mastek/ Majesco for a financial contribution of Rs. 15 crore towards the Center for Policy Studies in IIT Bombay.

“I feel fulfilled to contribute towards IIT Bombay’s journey of making Centre for Policy Studies a premier policy institution. This Centre will contribute towards India’s need for talent, research and advisory to achieve holistic approach to policy making, particularly with emphasis on technology,” he said.

As a part of the function, Distinguished Service Awards were bestowed on two alumni members this year, Krishnamurthy Raghunandan (batch of 1972) and Mr. Sachin Galgalikar (batch of 1986) by the institute Director, Subhasis Chaudhuri.
