The Gateway to the Knowledge

Citadel of Countless Opportunities

IIT Bombay

IIT Bombay has a belief that every Indian learner deserves to be given a chance to have the highest quality education. Scarcity of trained teachers critically hinders this national desire. MHRD via IIT Bombay envisions empowerment of teachers, through workshops conducted for thousands of teachers at on go, using a unique blend of technology and an innovative pedagogy. For achieving this IIT Bombay has launched various workshops and projects.

GL Bajaj is proud to be a part of this collaboration as it has been authentically confirmed as a remote centre of IIT Bombay. It is one among 248 remote centre’s all over India responsible for being part of the workshops conducted by IIT Bombay.
