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

It’s our endeavor to make all efforts to ensure transparency in all the activities of students. Grievance Committee has been constituted to protect the human right which is essential for all-round development of an individual’s personality.

Institute has decided to provide a mechanism for Redressal of student’s grievances as per UGC Guidelines as under
The Grievances may broadly include the following complaints of the aggrieved students-

  • Academic– related to admission, tuition fees, examination, results, discrimination of students, posting, attendance, stipend, patient’s quota, etc.
  • Non-Academic– related to Harassment by a colleague or the faculty/non-teaching staff, hostel issues, mess problems or any other personal problems.

The function of the committee is to look into the complaints lodged by any student and find out the solution to the problem. Anyone with a genuine grievance may 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 complaints are solved by the faculties or mentors at the departmental level for the smooth functioning of the college, but the major complaints which need attention at a higher level are only referred to the grievance committee. The Grievance Committee convenes periodic meetings and takes steps to redress the grievances of students related to academics/non-academics.
