‘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.'
"I offer my special congratulations to Dr. Achyuta Samantaji. Such great things do not happen on their own. I think he has some special blessings of God that he thought of setting up this noble institution."
"KIIT and KISS are more developed than even the most prominent of educational institutions in South India. I bow down to Dr. Achyuta Samanta, who single handedly built this gigantic institution.'
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.”
‘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.’
'KIIT is a very young but already very well known and highly respected university. This institution has the aroma of passionate and complete dedication. It is born of the labour of love and is, above all, humane.'
‘KIIT is a qualitative institution of global standard. I congratulate its founder Dr. Achyuta Samanta.’
'KIIT & KISS are laboratories of education.'
"It is impressive to see what has been established in the few years of its existence."
“I am greatly impressed by the progress made by this young University in such a short time and for this I offer my respect and admiration to its founder, Dr. Achyuta Samanta."
“Collect your dreams right now, carefully analyse them, exclude the impossible ones and set a strict focus on realistic and approachable goals with a certain success rate and be aware to also include a portion of rest. I am enormously impressed how this University has developed.”
"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" .
"Very impressive understating to provide such extensive expressive educational facilities. The scale of it is amazing and will surely impact the future of India. This is India’s secret to success."
"After having visited KIIT campuses, I am very much impressed by the dynamism and the energy here-the leadership, the management team, faculty, staff and students & am also impressed by the driving line, commitment and the spirit of team work."
“My visit to KIIT and KISS reconfirmed my belief that education is not preparation for life, but it is life itself. I commend youthful energy of KIIT . It is one of the foundations of future. It also reflects the spirit of rising Odisha”
"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."
"This is one of the most amazing and inspiring organizations I have ever seen. The world would be a better place if KIIT could be replicated in every part of the world where there is a need."
"How such a wonderful future of India has been planted here in KIIT!
We at IYFI have been inspired a lot. Truly we appreciate all of you."
'I am overwhelmed to see this wonderful Institution. It is building a better future for all its pupils and India as a whole.'
'I am very happy to be here in this vibrant and upcoming University, KIIT.'
'I feel inspired by the way the institution has developed. May it prosper and go from strength to strength.'
'I have been extraordinarily impressed with the phenomenal work undertaken by KIIT/KISS. The work of these two institutions gives me great hope that the challenges facing eastern India can be translated into opportunity. You are truly inspirations for all of the world.’
'We thank KIIT and its management for a wonderful conference, an impressive inauguration of the School of Biotechnology and Convocation. Organisation of our visit and of the events was excellent and highly professional.'
