The Balan Group's financial contribution will help expand the Smt. Indrani Balan Science Activity Centre that was earlier set up with their support. With a new demo lab, auditorium, a library and reading room as well as a media centre, the new Centre will become the hub of IISER Pune's outreach activities. 

We thank the Balan Group for the support and look forward to this partnership!
