      IIITans regard him as their director since the opening of the college as he holded the authority and his courses.Now,in terms of MHRD paper work he has been designated from mentor director to director.Also our permanent campus will soon be available by the end of this year.It will be a great pleasure just like the happiness when moving to a new house.

        Dear Editor Indian Express, the least you could do is copy NEWS properly from PTI,lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;In the headlines: Instead of 'Bora' it should be 'Barua' lt;br/gt;At least spell people's name properly while reporting. I doubt what will Prof. Barua think while he reads this piece of article.
