Toppers' List - A clarification
retired Prof & Head, Dept of Met Engg, BIT Sindri (Presently settled
from Mr.Awadhesh Prasad
Recently, I received a personal mail from Mr.Awadhesh Prasad < Awadhesh.Prasad@mdbc.gov.au
> with reference to the list of civil engineering toppers complaining
that this website is indulging in deliberate misinformation. Since
similar mistakes might be there on other web pages, the letter and its
reply is being posted here for information to all concerned.
Despite bringing this to your notice and your promise to rectify it
more than a month ago, the wrong display of 1986 batch Civil topper has not
been corrected. It is very unfortunate that your web-site indulges in
The correct position is I, Awadhesh Prasad, topped in 1986. Mr Anil
Gupta, whose name is displayed as the 1986 topper, passed in 1987.
To say that no batches passed in 1984 and 1985 is also misleading.
Civil batched passed out in 1984 and 1985 The topper in 1984 was
Chhtrapati Shivaji and in 1985 Awadhesh Kumar Jha.
Dear Mr.Awadhesh Prasad,
While we appreciate our alumni pointing out the mistakes to ensure that
the informations put on this site are as authentic as possible, we do
not agree that this website has ever indulged in deliberate
misinformation. As already informed to you that the toppers' list put on
this site has been taken from the list displayed officially in the main
lobby of administrative building of BIT Sindri. I have got the list
rechecked and the following names of civil engineering toppers between
1981 and 1990 as displayed in BIT administrative building lobby have
been sent to me by a senior BIT Professor today:
1981 - A.K. Burnwal
1982- K.P. Shivaji
1983 - A.K. Jha
1986 - A.K. Gupta
1987 - R.L. Bhardwaj
1988 - P. Chand
1989 - P.K. sinha
1990 - B.K. shrivastava
This list is the same as put on this site and unfortunately does not
tally with your suggestions. It is therefore necessary that this anomaly
is brought to the notice of BIT administration. They need to look into
their records and make necessary corrections on their display board
before we make any changes in our web page. We will make the changes as soon as the corrections made in BIT's official list is brought to our notice. We are sorry that this has
hurt your sentiments and caused you unnecessary inconvenience.
