Our alumni have started organizing an annual event called “Nostalgia” from the year 2012. The Alumni Meets at KIIT School of Rural Management, saw the alumni recall their shared past with nostalgia. The Alumni Meet turned out to be a wonderful occasion to meet and share the experiences within themselves and with the present on-going batches at campus on various issues and careers they have chosen.

In 2017, KSRM has started organizing Alumni meet in different States of India, particularly in Jharkhand, Bihar, Odisha and Rajasthan. We are contemplating to establish Alumni chapters in various locations of India.
