Agenda 5: Increase the representation of girls in Senate
Principal asked no such necessity exists for a small UG institution like ours. However he suggested increasing their representation by acquiring some of the present posts itself.
Agenda 6: Language lab is more needed for 3rd and 4th year students. But they are not getting it in requirement. Regarding the slot distribution of other batches, we may talk to PTA Secretary and give a proper proposal for changes in the slots. Principal pointed out that it would be better if s7 student representatives accelerate PTA fund collection.
Agenda 7: Permission for opening the gate near the YMCA hall for the convenience of bike parking. Students are facing great trouble due to proper parking area. Senate suggested that parking area can be provided in the shed near the library. Sir said that since there is as such no closed region for parking, he cannot permit parking of bikes inside the campus. Due to lack of security 3 gates cannot be kept open at a time. He cannot take a decision as of now as the matter is not synchronizing with prevailing campus rules.
Agenda 8: General Facilities
1. Window glasses and ceiling fans of most classes are not in proper condition
