SC/ST Cell

About the Cell

Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) have been identified as the two most backward groups of Indian Society. They include all the castes, races or tribes, which have been socially, economically and educationally backward. The cell has been established to support and to bring students from such communities in the main stream.

The Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) Cell promotes the special interests of students in the reserved category. It provides special inputs in areas where the students experience difficulties.

The SC/ST cell of the University was established with the purpose to empower the SC/ST students in the university. The university takes special interest in facilitating financial support to students from these communities from government agencies and other sources. They are also encouraged to enroll for career orientation programs, which would equip them with the necessary skills to choose a career option.
