On July 26, Kargil Vijay Diwas was solemnly observed at IIIT-Bangalore to honor the courage and bravery displayed by the Indian soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country during the Kargil War in 1999. This day holds special significance as it marks the triumph of Operation Vijay, a crucial military victory over Pakistan in the Kargil War.

Our Director, Prof. Debabrata Das highlighted the significance of observing Kargil Diwas to the gathering of students, faculty and staff members, while, our Registrar, Commodore SR Sridhar (Retd.), provided a concise account of the Kargil War's fierce confrontation between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir. It was in this region that the Indian Army valiantly recaptured the renowned 'Tiger Hill' and other strategically important posts under the operation 'Vijay,' effectively evicting the Pakistani troops. This victory symbolizes the indomitable spirit and dedication of our armed forces in safeguarding our nation's integrity.
