IIT Kharagpur has donated ₹ 1 crore to the PM Cares Fund to battle the coronavirus outbreak in India
The institution raised the money from the faculty, non-teaching staff, and other sources over the past week.
“We had proposed to contribute towards this fund and circulated a form through which all employees of IIT Kharagpur can voluntarily donate towards this national fund through an institutional mechanism. I am glad to see people have come forward in large numbers and within a week we have been able to pledge the amount. We have communicated the same to the Ministry of Human Resources Development as well,”
IIT Kharagpur Director Virendra Tewari said on Wednesday.
