In 2016, a one of its kind, the Bicycle Club was setup by the college with 24 cycles purchased from the support of the alumni and wellwishers from the society at large. After successfully running the activity for a year, in 2017-18, the demand for additional bicycles was received by the college office. As a result, 6 new bicycles were procured bringing the total to 30.

The Bicycle Club rents a bicycle to the students for their daily use and commuting from their home at a nominal rent of Rs. 50/-. The student has to deposit (fully refundable) Rs. 1000/- as a guarantee to the college office. Normally, the bicycle is rented to the student for a period of one semester.

The desirous students are screened via parents’ permission, the distance of their place of stay from the college, undertaking to care for and use the bicycle daily.

Helping Hand is the group dedicated to help individuals who are visually impaired or specially challenged. We want to make the college environment more accessible to people living with disabilities.

The teacher’s Physics department underwent an online training program in collaboration with XRCVC, Mumbai for a whole day which was aimed at sensitizing the faculty and at the same time how to deal with visually challenged student so that they can fill at ease while doing Physics practical's and theory in general. The trainers from XRCVC, emphasized the importance of the way teachers interact with a visually challenged student. It opened up eyes of the faculty who decided to do their best in the interest of such students.

 

An online content creation training for visually challenged was organized in collaboration with XRCVC, Mumbai on 24th September 2021 in which students of our college volunteered them selves.
