Invitation

Invitation for Attending Convocation

The XIX Convocation of National Institute of Technology, Rourkela for 2021 batch graduating students is schedule to be held on 13th August 2022 (Saturday) at 10.00 am in the BHUBANESWAR BEHERA AUDITORIUM (BBA) of the Institute. Unlike in other convocations, in view of the Covid-19 guidelines, it has been decided to have very limited number of in-presence attendees for this Convocation. It is a pleasure for me to invite only the Ph.D. degree awardees, all Medal winners and Distinguished Alumnus awardees to attend the convocation and receive the Degree/Medal in person. However, other graduands, though not attending the Convocation in person, will get their degree certificate at the same time through "Block Chain Technology" in their mobile as well as email id given at the time of registration. The Institute also has the pleasure of inviting your parents and family members to witness this pleasant occasion in online mode on the YouTube (link to be notified in due course), but is unable to provide them seats inside BB Auditorium. Due to covid-19 restrictions and space constraints the Institute is unable to invite parents / spouse of the graduands who will be attending Convocation (Ph.D. and Medal Winners) physically. Please visit our website https://www.nitrkl.ac.in/Convocation for further details.

A. DRESS CODE

Male Graduands : Full sleeve Sambalpuri design Kurta (Blue for UG, Green for PG and Maroon for Ph. D), white colour Pajama and matching Utariya to be issued by the Institute at the time of Registration. Graduands will wear their own leather sandal or Juti to match the dress code and occasion. However, slippers are strictly not permitted.

Female Graduands : Sambalpuri design Saree (Blue for UG, Green for PG and Maroon for Ph. D) to be issued by the Institute at the time of Registration. Graduands will come with their own blouse matching to the Saree (i. e Blue for UG, Green for PG and Maroon for Ph. D) and leather sandal or Juti to match the dress code and occasion. However, high heel sandals and slippers are strictly not permitted.

B. PRE-REGISTRATION

Though all the graduands have already pre-registered with their details in the Convocation portal months ago, due to the change in requirement all are required to re-register once again with some additional information. They can edit their earlier information; however, they are advised not to change their email id and mobile number because those have already been embedded in to "Block Chain Technology" through which their degree will be delivered.

C. REGISTRATION

The limited number of Graduands (Ph.D. and Medal Winners only), who are invited for Convocation, will have to register their names in person on 12th August 2022 (Friday) between 9.00 am to 11.00 am in the Rajendra Mishra Exhibition Hall of the Institute by producing any Photo ID (viz., NITR ID Card/Employee ID Card at the place of work/PAN Card/DL/Adhar Card/Voter ID). Participation by latecomers is forbidden to ensure that degree certificates are stacked in advance in the right sequence, and that there is no mix up during the Convocation.

D. DRESS ISSUE

The limited number of Graduands (Ph.D. and Medal Winners) reporting to receive degree/medal in the Convocation are required to collect Convocation dress at the time of registration on 12th August 2022 (Friday) between 9.00 am to 11.00 am in the Rajendra Mishra Exhibition Hall of the Institute. Such Graduands will retain the dress after the Convocation as a memory without paying any additional fee/charge for same.

E. REHEARSAL (COMPULSORY)

There will be a rehearsal of the convocation process at 2.30 pm on 12th August 2022 (Friday) (i.e. on the afternoon of the day before the Convocation) in the BHUBANESWAR BEHERA AUDITORIUM (BBA) of the Institute. Since the Convocation is a sombre event, it is imperative that the event moves without flaw. Only a complete rehearsal shall ensure compliance by all concerned. Hence, it has been decided not to permit a Graduand to participate in the Convocation if he/she misses the rehearsal.

F. BLOCKCHAIN-BASED DIGITAL DEGREE

This year National Institute of Technology Rourkela has decided to enhance the Convocation experience for all the graduating students by issuing blockchain-based digital certificates along with the physical certificates and degrees.
