ABOUT

Kshitij had started in the year 2004, in the sprawling campus of IIT Kharagpur, with an aim to motivate and encourage the technically inclined young minds to pursue their passion. Since then, Kshitij has grown exponentially to become Asia's largest techno-management fest. With the participation of over 70,000 students from over 1400 colleges of India and abroad, Kshitij has been successful in setting up new milestones for the years ahead. Kshitij provides a platform for students to be motivated by eminent personalities from across the globe, to take part in workshops by technical giants, to take up the initiative to resolve pertinent social issues and to witness advancements in technology and business.

Organizational Structure:
Kshitij is a completely student-run non-profit organisation. The 40-strong Core Organizing Team consists of a three-tier hierarchy level comprising 2 Executive Heads at the top and 12 Core Team Heads and 26 Core Team Members. The Heads are responsible for managing all the aspects of the fest, whereas the Members are responsible for the smooth conduction of the fest at the ground level.

Although every aspect of Kshitij is no closer to one head than the other, but for smooth functioning, certain portfolios are allocated to every head. The Heads are classified on the basis of their portfolios- Sponsorship, Events, Finance, Publicity, Media & Overseas Coordinator. On the other hand, the Members are responsible for managing the finer aspectsof the fest, such as Accommodation, Guest Reception, Transport, as well as Corporate Management and Branding. The Design and Web Teams also form an integral part of the organisational structure of the fest. The entire team works in synchronisation to make an event of this magnitude a resounding success
