On July 26, 2014, the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) in West Bengal held its 60th Convocation and conferred the Distinguished Alumnus Award on Krishen Mehta.

Mr. Mehta has been a friend and supporter of Carnegie Council for many years and is a member of the Andrew Carnegie Society.
