IIT-ISM Dhanbad Convocation Held on 18th June
  • IIT-ISM student convocation was held on 18th June 2018.
  • Students were given an option of taking the convocation pledge in Sanskrit or English.

IIT-Indian School of Mines (ISM) Dhanbad students opted for Indian attire during their convocation on Monday, 18th June rather than the traditional gown they had been wearing for almost 92 years. This year, they also had an option of taking the convocation pledge in Sanskrit.

As per the new dress code, the boys had an option to wear pale white kurta-pajama and the girls of the institution could opt for off-white saree for the convocation.

Apart from the dress code, passing out students had an option to either take the pledge either in English or Sanskrit. The institute planned to introduce the pledge in Sanskrit as it symbolizes the Indian culture.

The Indian School of Mines was established in the year 1926 and got the status of an IIT in the year 2016. Until now, the outgoing students used to wear the traditional gowns at the convocation ceremony and could only take the pledge in English. However, the dean of infrastructure, Mr. Patnayak, decided to do something out-of-the-box this year to take back students to their own culture.
