IITGN signed a MOU with Sri Gordhanbhai B Gelot to set up a faculty chair in honour of his late father Sri Bakshirambhai S Gelot. Based in Mumbai, Sri Gordhanbhai runs a small scale industry in Umargam (south Gujarat). His father was a self-made successful farmer but deprived of receiving any formal education. He recognized the importance of education and gave the best possible education to his children. The faculty chair will help recognize and reward academic excellence and also facilitate in retaining outstanding faculty.
