BSP is the voice of the students. We give you the highest podium to talk about your views and opinions about everything under the Sun.” – Sanjana Garg, General Secretary, BSP

The Board for Student Publications (BSP) is IIT Delhi’s electronic and print media body, run entirely by the student community.  BSP is a source of information about all that is happening in the campus, be it the about the next big event near you or the latest cool gadget being built at IITD.

BSP publishes a series of magazines like Inception (yes, the one that you’re reading!), Elemental (our tech magazine), Muse (there goes your creative content) and regular Newsletters to keep you informed about the real issues on campus. At the end of it- This is not all. If you want to create your own magazine, BSP gives you that opportunity too! We have our very own inter hostel magazine designing competition, Gazettale, which is the perfect chance for you to show off your creativity. So, if you want to see your magazine being distributed to the whole campus and win the huge BSP trophy for your hostel, watch out for Gazettale in the next semester.

We are a team of 18 journalists and 12 technical editors and we are literally the Arnab Goswamis of the campus (minus the constant high volume shouting), going “The Students want to know” on the faculty and administration. You will probably see our dedicated team running about taking your interviews and talking to the staff and faculty at IITD, trying to uncover the truth about issues bothering the students. All our articles include in depth research and well done analysis of important issues that happen in the campus. You can write to us at our forum if you want us to investigate something that is going wrong around you.

BSP is also an avenue for the student community to showcase their creative endeavours, in the form of caricatures, poetry, stories, photographs and much more. The creative segment ‘Bittersweet’ (find it on our website) is a platform for all enthusiasts of creative content. We aim to provide a platform for expression and recognition of the creative minds on campus! We also organize workshops from time to time which range from teaching you basic skills of making caricatures to how to write fiction novels or a nice poem.
Literati, the annual literary fest of IIT-D, is organised by the BSP in the month of September . The plethora of events include quizzing, workshops on photography, drama and comic making , competitive writing, spelling bee and talk shows with distinguished personalities like Shashi Tharoor, Sorabh Pant, Ashwin Sanghi and the comedy group AIB. Comedy nights and poetry reciting evenings add to the charm of the fest.
