How to reach

Reaching IISERPune (Campus II) from Railway Station:
You can take an auto rickshaw from the railway station to Panchavati. It's about 10 kms and costs approximately Rs. 90/. The night charges are roughly 1.5 times.Warning : auto rickshaws tend to charge twice the price at nights.You can also take ST buses from Pune station to Panchavati (before Pashan Circle bus stop). Take any bus going to Sutarwadi/Abhinav or 145 going to NDA (from Municipality stand take 110/109). Better ask before boarding the bus. The bus stand is on the left hand side once you come out of the main railway station. For people coming from Mumbai can also get down at Shivaji Nagar rail station.
Participants are requested to report their arrival to the reception with invitation letter and photo identity proof.
