With an objective to involve students in the institute development, Phonathon is an initiative of Students’ Alumni Cell which helps in Institute development under the Endowment Campaign. In various avenues like developing centers of excellence for innovative research, recruiting world-class faculties, student facilities, students scholarships etc; this event benefits the institute. In our continuous efforts to expand the alumni network, bringing forward conversations of first year students with the alumni supports our efforts as well as provides the students with a unique opportunity to interact with the alumni as well as contribute to the development of the institute. The event also provides an easy platform for the alumni to give back to the alma mater and connect with the institute. Focusing on the needs of the halls of residence, via Hall endowment, this event has a nostalgic facet.
