Extension Activities

Extension Activities and Community Service

Participation of students and faculty in extension activities (NSS, NCC, YRC and other NGOs)

All students who get admission in the college are required to join either NCC, or NSS, or sports. Extension activity is taken up as regular activity in all three of these. This ensures participation of every student in extension activity of her choice. The institution organizes regular activity camps of the NSS and NCC. Extension Activities and Community Services are carried out under the supervision of programme officers and faculty members.

The following details of the extension activities of the institution amply demonstrate our commitment towards community obligations:
