The GMRT was formally inaugurated and dedicated to the global astronomy community on 4th October 2001. This year (2021) marks 20 years of operations of this unique facility. To commemorate the occasion, we had a celebratory event on 4th and 5th October 2021, with presentations and discussions on :
* Highlights of the scientific & engineering achievements and milestones over the years
* Review of the impact that the GMRT has had
* Future prospects for the facility
* Release of certain new data products, analysis tools & pipelines
There were 4 sessions of 3 hours each over the 2 days, each having a mix of science and engineering presentations, release events, discussion sessions, and some commemorative events.
We had enthusiastic participation from a cross-section of people across the world who have been associated with the GMRT in some way or other over the years, either as planners or designers, builders or users of the facility.
