SRM student become India's 68th Grandmaster

SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST) is proud to announce that its student Arjun Kalyan has become India’s 68th Grandmaster recently. This 18-year-old is pursuing his first year in B.Com at SRMIST. He has crossed the 2500 ELO mark after scoring a win at the ongoing GM Round Robin “Rujna Zora-3” in Serbia. Arjun had come close to becoming a Grandmaster in the previous tournament last week but has missed it by a whisker. Arjun Kalyan is an IM with two GM norms and has an ELO of 2500. He scored his first GM norm at the Biel Masters 2018 and followed it up with his second GM norm at the Roquetas De Mar. We are proud to have him as our student here at SRMIST and wish him many more laurels in the future.
