Implementing and getting Drona up and running was a big achievement this semester, even if its foundation had been laid 2 years ago. The council also seemed unready to handle conflicts in the GCs such as miscommunication on rules in the water polo GC, and teams playing to lose in the TT and Tennis GCs.

While a major success was gaining approval for 2 way flight tickets for inter IIT Guwahati, practice for inter IIT this year was reported to be slow and not as effective effective than last year.
