The PanIIT Alumni movement took root in 2002, when some like-minded alumni formed a PanIIT Board. The board organized two events in San Jose (January 2003) and Bengaluru (February 2003), which were highly successful.
The PanIIT Alumni organization was formed as an umbrella organization, covering alumni of all Indian Iinstitutes of Technology, to evolve a brand that would provide strong fraternity among IIT alumni with the key objectives of:
Enhancing the IIT Brand.
Networking and Alumni Services.
Providing a forum for Advocacy.
