Mother of all IITs - IIT Kharagpur

In keeping with its motto ‘योगः कर्मसु कौशलम् ’ or ‘Yoga is skill in works’, IIT Kharagpur has always put utmost importance on hard work and perseverance, which are the key ingredients for success in any field. Being the oldest IIT, it has never shied away from taking responsibility or taking the lead and showing its younger counterparts, the way.

Here in the midst of the beautiful and calm town of Kharagpur, away from the hustle and bustle of the metros, lies the largest and the oldest, aptly named ‘ mother of all IITs’. IIT Kharagpur has done justice to the dreams of the stalwarts who established it and has helped foster the greatest minds of the country, who have gone on to excel in varied fields, ranging from politics to media, sports to entrepreneurship, and science to engineering.
