The National Highways Authority of India has also signed an MoU with the Institute to get assistance for the construction and repairing the highways.

The state government of West Bengal has taken the decision to seek tips and suggestions from IIT Kharagpur for the construction of Vivekananda Flyover which collapsed a few months back. The major portion of the flyover collapsed, and the government is in a dilemma whether to demolish the entire structure or strengthen the existing structure. So, a committee of experts from IIT Kharagpur will look into this issue and draw conclusions.

The experts of IIT Kharagpur have pointed out six reasons for the flyover collapse:-

  • Improper project execution
  • Lack of quality check
  • Design inadequacy
  • Fabrication inadequacy
  • Faulty approval of design and
  • Inconsistency of material

IITs are the premier institutes of India which play a significant role in the field of engineering. Recently the students of IIT Kharagpur designed a racing car for a competition in Russia. The National Highways Authority of India has also signed an MoU with the Institute to get assistance for the construction and repairing of highways.
