Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, ranked India’s eight best university in the 2018 NIRF rankings, is on a mission to save lives in mountainous regions of the country by installing state-of-the-art systems that give advance warnings of landslides so that people can be safely evacuated before disaster strikes. After successfully commissioning India’s first such system in Kerala’s Western Ghats, it is now readying the second installation in Sikkim to guard against rainfall-induced landslides in the Sikkim-Darjeeling belt. The project is jointly funded by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India, and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.
