The Institution has a transparent mechanism for timely redressal of students’ grievances including sexual harassment and ragging cases. The students submit their grievances either directly to the Principal or to the IQAC by dropping their grievances in the complaint and suggestion boxes placed in all academic blocks of the institution. The students’ grievance Cell then brings the grievances to the IQAC office where the grievances are addressed by a committee which include the Principal, the IQAC Co-ordinator and the IQAC member who is incharge of students’ grievances. To address the various gender based issues that are prevalent in our society today, the college has set up the Women’s Cell and the prevention of Sexual Harassment Cell under the guidance and supervision of the Equal Opportunity Centre.
