The Assam Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi, inaugurated a solar power plant at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) – Shillong campus on July 13, 2012. The 50KW solar power plant is set up to provide clean energy to the campus and to meet the needs of the institute.

The CM pointed out that the main reason for the rebellion in the state was due to the lack of industrial development and employment opportunities. He added that they should also conserve ground water and practice rain water harvesting at the IIM – Shillong campus.

He further added that this problem can be resolved only through economic development and increasing the employment opportunities.
