MECHANISM FOR RECEIVING STUDENT’S GRIEVANCES & REDRESSAL OF STUDENT’S GRIEVANCES

It’s the endeavour Student Grievance Redressal Committee to make all efforts to ensure transparency in all the activities of students.

The Institute has decided to provide a mechanism for Redressal of Student’s Grievance as per UGC guidelines as under-
The Grievances may broadly categorised under following-
  • Academic– related to admission, tuition fees, examination, results, discrimination of students, posting, attendance, stipend, clinical work, etc.
  • Non-Academic– related to harassment by a colleague or the faculty/non-teaching staff, hostel issues, mess problems or any other personal problems.

Any student with a grievance can approach the committee members, member secretary, nodal officer or directly to the chairperson of the committee. In case if a student is unwilling to appear in self, grievances may be dropped in writing in the suggestion/complaint box at the administrative block of the college.

Minor issues are solved by the faculty or mentors at the departmental level for the smooth functioning of the college, for issues not resolved at this stage the students approach/directed to the student grievance redressal committee and submit the grievance.

The committee convenes meeting to redress the grievances of student by giving all the stakeholders involved a chance to put their stand on the issue at separate time if needed. The committee tries to solve the issue amicably.

If needed guidance and direction are sought form higher authorities (Dean).

After the meeting the decision made and the report of the committee is submitted to the Dean’s office accordingly and communicated to stakeholder’s involved.


Recently, the mechanism for submission of the grievances by the students was enhanced by using the ERP (Enterprise Resource Software) which the student already uses during admission process. They can log in to the software with allotted user ID and password and submit the grievance anonymously. The student grievance committee gets a notification whenever a grievance is submitted. The software also enables tracking the status of the grievance.
