Topo Group Charter:

  1. Topo Group is an assembly of classmates who graduated from The University of Roorkee (UOR) in November 1964. The initial membership was limited to the students of Electrical and Telecommunications branches. There was a common bond between Electrical and Telecommunications students mainly due to the fact that most of the classes were common to both specialties including Tutorials. Except for the final year of studies, it was hard to differentiate between the two engineering disciplines.
  2. The membership was later opened to all graduates of University of Roorkee, class of November 1964 as many of us had good friendships regardless of our branch.
  3. Topo is abbreviation for the word Topography which means " the art of showing in detail a map or chart the physical features of a place or region ". In our student days the map or chart was the complicated Geometric Drawings, Electro Magnetic Theory or the Tutorial work that must be completed and submitted on time. All this was done in a brotherly manner with very close cooperation. It was due to this cooperation that all of us were able to clearly understand the complexities of Electrical/TC engineering and graduated with flying colors. " OH!!! Really!!'”. Some one may question the accuracy of this statement. But none the less, we all became the member of the " Topo Group". Our definition of the Topo Group is friend helping friend , staying in touch and have fun in the process.
  4. Topo Groups’s moto is “Topo Bina Na Kimapi Sadhyam”. It means "nothing is possible without topoing".
  5. Topo Group is completely non legal entity and open to all to join who qualify as defined in the article 1 and 2 of the charter." Class of November 64 - all branches". The name TOPO GROUP was promoted by some members and the name recognition caught on due to noble cause it represents.
