This aim and objective of the committee is to provide the students an easy, prompt and accessible mechanism for disposal of their college related grievances.

Grievances that will be considered
  • Only college related grievances of students will be considered.
  • The committee will consider only individual complaints of students and not collective complaints raised collectively by more than student.
  • The committee will not take grievances related to faculty or non-teaching staff.
  • The committee will not consider student grievances related to sexual harassment (taken by ICC) or related to ragging (taken care by anti-ragging committee).
Different stages for Redressal of grievances are:
  • First stage (Teacher/Department level):
    The aggrieved student represents his/her grievance either in person or in writing to the concerned teacher or TIC in the dept.
  • Second stage (Committee level):
    If the student is not satisfied by the reply given by the teacher/TIC, she may request the teacher/TIC to forward her grievance to the committee. The committee after due deliberations will give a written reply to the student.
  • Third stage (Principal):
    If the student is not satisfied with the reply given by the Grievance Committee, then she can represent the matter to the principal.

Please Note: The student can also directly approach either the grievance committee or principal without going through the teacher/department.

  • The Grievance Committee will meet as and when required depending on grievances received. The Grievance Redressal Committee shall consider all relevant grievances submitted in writing.
