Surviving IIT-M

This is an ever growing list of things that we learn as employees and residents of IIT. Most of it can be found in the collective wisdom on campus or in the Acts and Statues handbook, a copy of which is available in the department office and in the library. What follows is not exhaustive, but more of a survival handbook. There is also the other authoritative handbook - Swami's handbook for central government employees. As the title suggests, it is for all government employees, but many of the rules and procedures are applicable to IIT faculty since IIT faculty are also government employees. Every department office is supposed to have a copy of Swami's but it may be outdated. Swami's comes out with a revised edition every year and it may be worth having your own copy, just to know what all the rules look like.
