Dr. Jahar Saha, a statistician by training, joined the Institute in 1966 as a research associate, at the age of 22. In 1971, he was sent to Case Western Reserve University for his doctoral studies. He returned in 1975, joining the Production and Quantitative Methods Area. He took over as director from Dr. P. M. Shingi who was Acting Director from September 1, 1996 to April 8, 1997. The latest additions to the Old Campus, the Ravi J. Matthai Auditorium and office complex had been inaugurated in January 1997, but a portion of the land allotted to IIMA, where the new campus was planned, was under litigation. With the help of the then Dean, Dr. Saha persuaded the political leadership to settle this issue. A masterplan, which included the present underpass, was prepared for the new campus. Municipal approvals were obtained; but construction had to be delayed because of a court order.
