Institute Sports Council: Mid-Term Review
The Institute General Body Meets (GBMs) are conducted twice every year with the intent to provide all students a convenient mechanism to provide feedback and address concern to the student representatives responsible for various amenities on campus.
The Institute Sports Council GBM is scheduled from 11:15pm on 2nd November at the Open Air Theater (OAT) in SAC.
A brief summary of the advances in each sub-field has been provided. Please click on particular genres to know more about them.
The work completed so far has helped quite a few teams to conduct their practices smoothly. Re-soiling and leveling of Football, Hockey and Athletics field has been carried out extremely well; enabling players to use the Athletics field even during monsoons. Outdoor volleyball courts, kho-kho field were readied during the summers, the swimming pool has been repainted and its floor roughened, TT hall and squash court have been renovated and Indoor SAC has been repainted to a standard colour.
Inter-Hostel GC tally boards, and electronic screens with event & result display will be installed on the back wall of TT Hall facing the Grounds along with the ones for Inter IIT. Proposal for construction of Indoor synthetic multi-purpose arena in place of old swimming pool has already been approved and is in the pipeline. Construction of covered footpath around SAC for jogging throughout monsoons has not been approved due to numerous other proposals put forth by the council for hosting Inter IIT and has hence been postponed to the next semester. An artificial climbing wall with a “High Fitness Zone” will be installed in the New Gymkhana, which is expected to go up early next semester.

Overall, while a lot has been done for ensuring that the Inter IIT Sports Meet is hosted at a grand scale, other non-Inter IIT, institute initiatives have faced some negligence. This could perhaps have been pushed to a greater extent and will hopefully be done in the coming semester.
