Objective of the practices:
- The institution aims to encourage the students to study well and dedicate their maximum time for continuous learning.
- Another objective of this practice is to provide financial assistance to the meritorious students.
- To inculcate the values of generosity and a sense of social responsibility among the students.
- It was decided to keep a certain amount as fixed deposit in the bank for generating a regular source in the form of annual interest which is to be distributed as cash prizes.
- After a thorough discussion in the staff meeting, many of the faculty members agreed to contribute individually towards corpus fund.
- With the generous contribution from faculty members a fund of Rs 1.75 lakh is collected and kept as fixed deposit in the State Bank of India.
- Annual interest earned on this deposit, approximately Rs.12,500/- is to be distributed as cash prize for meritorious students.
- We are proud that this practice of awarding cash prize to the meritorious students is unique in this locality since other colleges in the town do not have this practice.
- We select the students securing highest marks in each subject as meritorious.
- The total amount of Rs 12,500/- annual interest earned on the deposit is distributed as cash prize among the top scorers.
- These cash prizes are announced in the orientation programme and are distributed in the Gymkhana Activities Inauguration ceremony held usually in the first month of academic year.
