10/10

There are various student societies and clubs which makes a college life. Club activities add both fun activities and constructive activities. Various fests are organized by different clubs. 

The main and most popular fest is our cultural fest "RECSTACY" .Then comes our tech fest "AAROHAN".The other fests which take place in NIT Durgapur are AAVISHKAR, VERVE, MUKTI, etc.

Overall the college life at NIT Durgapur is up to the expectations. There is full freedom inside the campus, there is no time barrier restrictions regarding entering the hostels (both for boys and girls). Some of the canteens remain open till late at night.


INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
8/10

There are in total 9 hostels for boys and 4 hostels for girls. The hostel fees (including mess fees) is nearly about 3-3.5k per month.

There are many PGs outside the college campus available for the students.

The food in the hostel is mediocre (not too good, not too bad). There are various canteens available inside the college campus.

The infrastructure is in the developing stage, some new high rise buildings are in construction stage which, after completion will improve the external beauty of the college.

Classrooms of the new buildings are in awesome condition but the classrooms of the old buildings are in miserable conditions which need improvement.

Central library is there inside the campus with over 1 lakhs of books inside the library.

Wifi and common rooms with TVs are the facilities available in every hostel.

 


ACADEMICS & FACULTY
9/10

Daily routine at NIT Durgapur is pretty much flexible. The class timings are not fixed every day (though it is scheduled), which means someday there may be 4 classes in the routine, other day there can be 5 classes, with a maximum number of classes possible in a day is 8.

Projects and Assignments are given very often.

Exam routine is as follows:- One exam held at the middle of the semester which is named as mid-sem and the other takes place at the end of the semester which is named as end-sem.

Faculty is kind of mixed bag in NIT Durgapur. There is a combination of both great and worst teachers.


FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
9/10

The fee structure is pretty much fair as it is based on annual family income. The tuition fee structure is the same as proposed by the Government which prevails at every NITs. Original tuition fees is about Rs 140000 per year. For students whose annual family income is more than Rs 5 lakhs, for them there is no tuition fee waiver, for students whose annual family income is in the range Rs 1-5 lakhs, for them the waiver is 2/3rd of the original tuition fees and for the students with annual family income is less than 1 lakh (and for SC/ST students) the tuition fees is about Rs 13000 per year.

There are various merit cum means scholarship (some based on family income whereas some based on merit) offered by the college. Apart from these, there are some more scholarships for SC/ST students.

Due to this flexible fee structure, in most cases, students don't need to avail loans.

Loans are available easily from the banks inside the campus itself.  There are banks like SBI, Canara from which students can avail loans easily.

Apart from hostel foods, there are some canteens and restaurants within college premises who provide reasonably good food at affordable price.
