The IIT Bombay Inter Varsity Debate Tournament 2017 [Sep 22-24]

IV 300x200 1

Ten-Second Takeaway: 

The 9th edition of IIT Bombay Inter Varsity Debate Tournament will be held at the beautiful Powai campus from 22nd September to 24th September, 2017.

What is it? 

This tournament is based on the British Parliamentary Debate format which has two speakers in each team with four teams in each round competing against each other.

To learn more about this format of Parliamentary debating you can go here. 

The tournament is open to cross teams with no bar on the stream of education as well as international colleges for participation.

Debate and adjudication workshops will be taken by internationally renowned debaters during the tournament for teaching advanced skills in debating and adjudication to all participants. 

Like previous editions you can be sure of a stellar line up of chief adjudicators and a substantial adjudication subsidy budget to ensure that there are good judges in every room.


The tournament is one of the best British Parliamentary debates in India with legends like Dan Lahav, Jainah, Rosie Unwin, Aditya Mitra and Sharmila Parmanand having come over as Core Adjudicators in previous editions of the tournament.

So we are thinking: Since these dates of the tournament will be a week before ABP Krabi 2017, doing well here would provide much needed momentum for teams heading towards the international Asian Championships so why not be a part of the IIT Bombay IV Debate Tournament.


Date : 22nd-24th September, 2017

Registration fees for participation is:

Rs.1500 per person without accommodation and Rs. 2500 per person with accommodation.
