About Us

Every year the month of October witnesses one of the most awaited collegiate cultural fiestas in the country — Antaragni, the cultural festival of IIT Kanpur. Running a legacy of 56 years, it has expanded and evolved into one of the largest cultural extravaganzas in India. Antaragni marks an eruption of cultural flair and creative exuberance that is the hallmark of our national diversity, thus defining the purpose it seeks to fulfill. Antaragni witnesses participation of students from over 350 top colleges of the country. Students from a plethora of fields — humanities, engineering, science, commerce, economics, law, and medicine participate in the events with great gusto and zeal. In the past, the fest has experienced 1.3L + footfall and over 25 M eyeballs annually. We've had charismatic performances from greats like Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Vishal-Shekhar, Sonu Nigam, Amit Trivedi, KSHMR, Quintino, and Guthrie Govan, who left the crowd gasping for more, every single time.

Join us on this nostalgic journey as we strive to take our cultural legacy forward. It's time to rekindle the flame, relive the thrill of returning to our roots, and share in every victory and defeat. Get ready to witness the festive gala from April 8, 2022, as we take this passion to new heights. A virtual adventure, a 3D model of our extraordinary home, an opportunity to rediscover Antaragni all over again, at your leisure! We're excited, and we're sure you will be as well! We welcome you with open arms!


VAC 2021

Blast From the Past
The ALUCAST Conference and Exhibition widely acclaimed by the Die Casting Industry and allied industries, is an Annual Event, organized by the Aluminium Casters’ Association (ALUCAST)®️, India. This event serves as a forum for exchange of ideas, technical know-how and brainstorming, with the participation of eminent experts in the various Die Casting arenas from India and abroad.

I am delighted to announce that the 27th edition of this annual event - ALUCAST 2021 is being organized on the 9th – 10th – 11th of December 2021 in the Virtual Mode. The Theme for ALUCAST 2021 is CURRENT TRENDS IN DIE CASTING.

The Die Casting Industry has been going through challenging times since the last financial year because of the unprecedented disruptions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The fluctuating prices of Aluminium, increasing manufacturing costs, shortage of skilled manpower and the resultant pressures on cash flows has become a major concern today. These challenges would appear more for the SMEs.

ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Conference will focus on the above referred challenges faced by the Die Casting Industry and deliberate on methods to tackle these issues and revive the Die Casting Industry post pandemic and pave the path towards sustainable growth.

I have pleasure in inviting Professionals, Engineers and Academicians to present Technical Papers on the various topics identified for ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Conference.

The ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Exhibition is being concurrently organized, and shall provide the Die Casters, manufacturers and suppliers from the allied industries a platform to showcase their products and services to prospective clients and revive business opportunities.

The Event assures the best value, experience and visibility for the Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers, Delegates and the Visitors. I extend a Warm Invitation to all the Professionals, Engineers, Academicians and the Students of Engineering and Technology to participate in this 3-Days Virtual Conference and Exhibition.

The Advisory Committee – ALUCAST 2021 looks forward to the support of the entire Die Casting Fraternity, as in the past. I thank you for your continued support and patronage.

With best wishes
