Today, on 17 January 2015, we celebrate the 19th Foundation Day of Atal Bihari Vajpayee – Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, the day on which the first stone to this esteemed foundation was laid 19 years ago and thus began the glorifying era of this prestigious institution. In 1995, The All India Council for Technical Education built a team of highly trained IT and management professionals who planned a document indicating the need for the establishment of a National Centre in the area of IT, hence the IIITs were initiated in the country. To uphold higher education in Information Technology and to fulfil the growing need of work force in the field of IT and software development, IIITM Gwalior was established by the Government of India in 1997 as a part of a series of IIITs. Entitled after the eleventh Prime Minister of India, Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the institute attained the prominence of a Deemed University in 2001 and was identified as an Institute of National Importance. Since its foundation, this institute has seen many accomplished IT and Management professionals and has proved its worth in various sectors of IT. The institute has an active participation in many technical and management ventures across the country and it surely has more to contribute to the development of IT and management in this country.
