SC-ST Cell

SC ST cell

In educational institutions, the SC ST Cell plays a crucial role in promoting the welfare and interests of students and staff from Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) communities. Serving as a bridge between the administration and SC/ST students and staff, the cell addresses grievances and facilitates their participation in academic and extracurricular activities.

The College’s SC/ST cell was established as per the UGC guidelines with the goal of empowering SC/ST students. The institution actively supports these students by providing guidance to get financial assistance from government agencies and other sources. Additionally, students are encouraged to participate in career orientation and skill enhancement programs, equipping them with the necessary skills for making informed career choices.
