Is there a AC in IIT HYDERABAD?

sudheer kumar 25th Dec, 2019
Dear aspirant,
If you are talking about AC rooms in IIT Hyderabad then you are in trouble as any IIT doesn't have Ac hostels for undergraduate students. But they have cooling ducts which are more convenient than cooler. So keep claim and keep studying for IIT exam.
