Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam
Former President of India

‘I congratulate Dr. Samanta for establishing institutions of character like KIIT and KISS. I urge the students of KIIT & KISS to take lead in spreading the message of peace and non-violence in present day strife torn world.’

'KIIT goes way beyond what I had expected to see. I was told that it is a nice institute with many students, but what I see here is nothing less than a township.

'KIIT is the first university that I have come across which is not promoted by a rich individual. Its Founder, Dr. Samanta runs this huge organisation from a chair and table under a tree. Even if there are 10 individuals like him in India, future of the country would be transformed.'

Dr. A. Samanta had created a beautiful environment for learning and growth, which must be leveraged towards imparting qualitative education. “We are happy that we have people like Dr. Samanta in the Board of University Grants Commission and I hope that he will be able to give better guidance on the cause of education.”

Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh
Hon’ble Union Minister of Science & Technology and Earth Sciences

‘I have seen many universities - private universities, deemed universities and Government universities. In a place like Bhubaneswar, KIIT is a sprawling University with all types of modern facilities and a wide range of disciplines, all at one place. There is perhaps no other example in India of a University like KIIT.

This University does not belong to Orissa alone. It belongs to the whole country; it belongs to the whole world. It can only happen if somebody renders selfless service to the society. '

‘It is very easy to simply expand education but the real challenge is to produce quality education. And that of course depends upon a huge amount of personal effort. Personal efforts of the teachers, in this particular case of the Founder himself, having conceptualised the whole thing and made this possible is praiseworthy. KIIT provides a beacon of what is possible through purely private effort.’

"It is humanity that ultimately benefits from the endeavours of KIIT and its founder, Dr. Samanta. Today, for the first time, I have experienced education for all in real time. I have been able to see not due to the work of a government or through the work of an inter-governmental organization, but through the vision, personal sacrifice and commitment of a man who has devoted his entire life to the betterment of the human condition out of love for his fellow human beings" .

"It has been a great privilege for me and my team to visit the KIIT and KISS on September 8th and 9th 2012.

It has been encouraging, stimulating and motivating that even one individual, Dr. A. Samanta, who was deprived of the blessing and support of his father at the age of four and grew up in absolute poverty, architected his mission to provide quality education to so many children."
