IIT Madras and TANSTIA ink pact on water treatment project
Harshita Das, 23 Mar 2017, #IIT Madras

The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and Tanstia-FNF Service Centre inked partnership on water treatment project. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Prof. Krishnan Balasubramaniam, Dean, Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research, IIT Madras and C. Babu, Chairman, TANSTIA-FNF Service Centre.

International Development Research Centre, Canada has funded the research project which includes developing the filter and water analysis kit. Prof. Ligy Philip, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras along with her students Dr. R. Elangovan and Mr. D. Kumaran, developed two water testing kits. The kit is developed for continuous monitoring of quality of drinking water mainly in rural areas. They were distributed to 176 panchayats for field testing.


Speaking on the agreement, Babu said, “The plan was to take this technology to 1,500 entrepreneurs in five years.”


According to TANSTIA-FNF Service Centre most of the problems arise due to lack of awareness and access to water testing facilities. The water treatment system will remove turbidity, organic matter, colour and odour along with most bacteriological contamination. The filtered water is collected in a container with proper lid, tap and chlorine tablet is added to remove microbes.


Meanwhile, Prof. Balasubramaniam said, IIT professors are committed to societal development at various levels. This is a grassroots level project that benefits day-to-day entrepreneurs who make a living. While the institutions can develop new technologies, it is organisations such as TANSTIA that can take it from the laboratories to the grassroots.”

How to score AIR 1 for GATE ???

Atharv Mungikar 2nd Dec, 2019

Hello Harshal,

It is very important to score good marks in GATE and what you are going for is AIR 1. You need to relax, eat well, sleep well and have a lot of faith and confidence in what you are doing. Revise as much as possible. Remember, GATE Question patterns do repeat in all years so make yourself through with Previous year Papers. As they say that practice makes the man perfect, so you also need to practice a lot to crack GATE with a high score.

I hope it helped.

All the best.

Is IIT Madras accepting MAT score for 2020 admissions?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 23rd Nov, 2019
Yes IIT Madras is accepting mat score as per the previous year evidence and we cannot surely say it will continue to accept this score in  future because there is no announcement as such so still for having admission in IIT Madras girstly you need to have 60% marks in your graduation for general category and for SC/ ST and OBC category this is 55%, for having a call letter from IIT Madras a candidate probably must have 96 + percentile in mat for the convenience you should be fall under 92 to 93 percentile, and you may also have call letter at 95 percentile.
Best of luck.
