Kharagpur is a town in West Bengal and I won’t say very developed. But as you enter the campus everything changes.

There’s a CCD, Subway and Baskin Robbins inside the campus. Almost every hall has its canteens which cater till around 2 am.

Tech Market is the place to go if you have to buy anything.

5 hot-spots in campus:

Nehru Museum , Hijli Jail (A Real Historical JAIL!), JCB Canteen, Nalanda Complex and Lakeside.

Outside Campus:

Chedis, Flavors, Shergil, Punjabi Dhaba and Taj biryani


All the students have to compulsorily undergo summer internship for 8 weeks after 4th semester. 

Placement records are very good.

Till the date, 7 out of 28 students have got PPOs.

People have been selected in various companies such as Wipro, Infosys, TCS and various reputed Law Firms.

Administration and Fees 


The administration overall is very good and students are given freedom to roam outside any time.

Negligible Restrictions

Fees is around 75,000 per semester appx including Hostel, Mess etc”

Best things

The Faculty is very good.

The infrastructure is excellent and the best thing is the exposure we get being a part of IIT Kharagpur.

Bad things

Attendance system is VERY STRICT!

One simply can not bunk classes. Limited holidays are there since it’s a residential course.

Another is the weather. Extremely humid with unpredictable rain (Personal again)

Mess Food : It could get better!

Other things

Well, I guess you get to learn much much more than just law here.

If you happen to be a TVF Pitchers or Permanent Roommates Fan, Arunabh Kumar, Biswapati Sarkar and Jitendra Kumar are KGP alumni.

Who knows next TVF is from RGSOIPL!

Tell us about the infrastructure of your college

Being a part of huge 2100-Acre IIT Kharagpur, RGSOIPL enjoys a lot of advantages.

Students of LLB, LLM and PhD are given B R Ambedkar Hall of Residence, which is one of the best hostels in the campus with the single rooms.

The college building is some 2 Kms from Hostel. It is a green campus, so people use bicycle.

College building is again very beautiful and is said to be inspired from the US Supreme Court building.

Class rooms are air-conditioned (such a relief in the humidity) and very comfortable seats with projectors and screens installed in each room.

WiFi is the ‘shizz’ of the campus. Whole campus is WiFi with amazing download speed averaging about 2-3 MBPS easily. Use DC++, you may also reach 60 MBPS.

Department has its own library with good number of books and one Central Library which is so huge that you take years to explore it completely
