The boot camps are being conducted by the IHFC and supported by its incubated startups, Rancho Labs and The Innovation Story. The aim of the boot camps is to encourage young minds to apply their skills and develop robots in teams.

"In the game of Robo-Kancha, one will see the beautiful co-existence of humans and robots collaborating to play the game of “Kancha”. The DRL will culminate with the finals in the first week of July", the IIT Delhi release stated.

"There are many exciting prizes for students to be won, including cash prizes and mentorship from IHFC-IIT Delhi as well as a Pre-SEED grant for student-owned startups, which is one of the main attractions", the release further added.
