SC/ST Students Cell

The SC/ST Students Cell addresses  academic and non-academic issues and complaints received from students in reserved categories. The institute strives to maintain an environment where all communities can participate in academic and research activities without any sort of discrimination with respect to caste or creed. In order to maintain such an atmosphere, the SC/ST students cell is responsible for sensitizing the campus community about the importance of having diversity.

The cell aims to ensure that anti-discrimination laws in the context of race/caste/creed are followed in letter and in spirit.

The cell is where any complaints by students about discrimination and/or harassment are to be brought up. We encourage student-victims to feel free to write to the following email address. In addition to by email, one can also consider filing an anonymous complaint at the website: https://goo.gl/forms/F3BKMxkdGu28OGRz2  The cell strives to ensure that anonymity is maintained throughout the investigation.
