Awards given by the Department

The Manudhane Excellence Awards have been made possible through a donation from the Indira Foundation, a trust promoted by a 1975 alumnus of the Chemical Engineering Department, Mr. Avi Nash. The individual awards are named after his parents Mr. R. G. Manudhane and Mrs. Indira Manudhane and are intended to encourage excellence in learning, teaching and research (particularly applied research) in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology – Bombay.
