The National Institute of Technology (NIT) has recently established a supercomputer 'Param Kanchenjunga', which is said to be fastest among all 31 NITs, an official said.

"It is aimed to help in research and academics. Since NIT has research areas like climate modelling etc., the supercomputer would aid in these fields as well. It is the fastest and most powerful among the NITs," Sanjay Wandhekar, associate director and head, High Performance Computing, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) - Pune, told IANS.

The supercomputer was established jointly with C-DAC - Pune last week at a cost of Rs.3 crore, said Wandhekar.
