Get, if you don’t have, a SBI bank account here at IIT Ropar. We have a bank branch inside the campus and an ATM just outside.
Parents are not necessarily required to come but they don’t stay with you in your rooms, you would have to book rooms in hotels here.

Highly recommended is to port your number to Punjab rather than buying a new SIM here. If you have a BSNL Sim then it is very good because of no roaming but Airtel has very good connectivity here.
