After he reached IIM-Shillong, he collapsed around 7pm while delivering lecture to students and was rushed to a nearest private hospital.

The former President was also supposed to address the students from 10am to 12.30pm on Tuesday.

An IIM-Shillong faculty said that Kalam has been visiting the institute for last three years to address the students. This year it was Kalam's third visit to IIM-Shillong on Monday.

Kalam was the 11th President of India and held the post from July 25, 2002 to July 25, 2007.

He was a renowned scientist and is considered to be the main brain behind India's space launch vehicle (SLV) and missile programme.

Assam and Nagaland governor, PB Acharya said that the nation has suffered a great loss in the demise of Kalam. Acharya said that Kalam is not only a former president but also a highly respected scientist internationally.

In 2012 Kalam was in Guwahati where he attended the 14th convocation function of IIT-Guwahati. Speaking at the convocation function, Kalam told students that wanted to see a "silent" Brahmaputra emerging into a "smart" waterway in the country. Kalam told the students that it is his dream to make Brahmaputra the most vibrant waterway in the country.

"Brahmaputra is very close to me. Yesterday and even today I visited the river. It is a silent river with limited activities now. My dream is to see Brahmaputra become a smart waterway in the country," Kalam had said then.

The government has declared a 7-day national mourning as a mark of respect for the departed former President.
