Class of 2004 Contributes Rs 15 Lakhs towards the New Academic Block
February 11, 2022
National Law School of India University is grateful to the Class of 2004 for their contribution of Rs 15 lakhs towards the New Academic Block. The contribution is made in memory of their classmate Ajoy Halder, who passed away last year.
The funds will be earmarked for the maintenance and repair of the New Academic Block. Built in 2014, the two-storey building has seven classrooms that can seat between 80 to 120 students, and two conference rooms. Upon completion of the ongoing refurbishments this year, the building will become the hub of academic activity at the University.
The Class of 2004’s initiative to support infrastructure on campus is part of the larger vision of inviting alumni support in jointly achieving the University’s development goals. In recognition of their contribution, NLSIU will erect a plaque in the Block’s Plaza.
Representing the Class of 2004, Abhishek Tripathi said, “Ajoy was the ‘joy’ of our batch. He was amongst a select few who had no enemies and was loved by all. Ajoy personified the wisdom in living life in the present and enjoying it to the fullest extent. His untimely passing is a reminder to never take life for granted. Our small contribution as a batch is hardly a match to the legacy that Ajoy leaves behind, yet it is a small attempt to keep his memories alive. We hope that the Plaza turns out to be as lively as Ajoy was.”
“We recognise the University’s requirement for resources to maintain and develop its facilities. For these facilities to remain accessible to all, we think that funds need to be generated from a variety of sources. Alumni certainly have a role to play in that. In a sense, contributing to NLSIU is not just about giving back. It is as much about investing in our own brand. I hope others too will come forward and contribute to this cause.”
