Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology Presents – NSIT Colloquium, 2016. Get Your Debate On!


It is with great pleasure that the Debating Society of Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology brings to you the fourth edition of its Annual Debating and Literary Festival, Colloquium to be held from 25th to 27th March, 2016.

After the mad success of last year’s edition, NSIT decided to expand on their events, duration, and more importantly, the prize money.

Featuring multiple keynote speeches among a plethora of new events, this year’s festival is aimed at raising the bar when it comes to interaction between young enthusiasts and eminent personalities, and strives to take literary indulgence to a whole new level.

They urge societies to consider the prize money at stake and the fact that as a festival still establishing itself, you can count on them to put in that extra bit of work required to make it a 3-day extravaganza of hard-hitting, eye-opening mind spaces.

The list of events at Colloquium 2016:

  • NSITMUN’16: The admiration of the Delhi MUN circuit and the enthusiasm of its participation is our lifeblood, and they’re back with our 5th edition to send another brilliant experience your way! The committees to be simulated at the conference are as follows:
