Indian Institute of Technology Bombay is recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of engineering education and research. As a member of staff in the Institute, you have become a part of this prestigious Institution which has made its presence felt all across the world through its alumni who are the flag bearers of the Institute. We take immense pride in the quality of education we impart and the values we give to our students. The vision of IIT Bombay is to be the fountainhead of new ideas and of innovators in technology and science. The mission of our Institute is to create an ambience in which new ideas and creativity flourish and from which research and scholarship and leaders and innovators of tomorrow emerge. It is our collective privilege and opportunity to work together to ensure future success of our Institute. I look forward to making this aspiration a reality with the help and support of all of you.
As an employee, the Institute expects you to follow the ethics and code of conduct while you perform your duties, and at the same time, also provide you with certain privileges which will not only secure your present but your future as well. Therefore, the need for a handy booklet to consolidate all the information an employee is likely to need in navigating through his/her career at IIT Bombay has been a long felt one. In order to address this need, we have come out with the Staff Handbook.
I hope this handbook, which incorporates all the required information, will be useful as a day-to-day reference for staff members. While one gets to find out written and unwritten rules as one progresses through one’s career in the Institute, a handbook like this is particularly useful for new employees.
Finally, a disclaimer. Every effort has been made to keep the handbook up-to-date and accurate to serve as a guide. However, details of rules and regulations regarding specific need and situation should be confirmed from administration as these are dynamic in nature. Guidelines given in this handbook should not be construed as authority.
