About IIT Kanpur Alumni Association Outer Delhi Chapter

With the initiatives of Padmasri Shri Satish Kaura, Shri Gyanesh Chaudhry and other distinguished IIT Kanpur alumni, IIT Kanpur Alumni Association – Outer Delhi Chapter was formed during 2000 for the better interaction amongst the alumni of IIT Kanpur staying or working in the satellite towns of Delhi. Under the able leadership of Founder President Shri Anil Goil, a large number of programmes were organized including seminars, family get-to-gathers etc. during 2000-2010.
