Acharya Prafulla Chandra College (APC College)

Students’ Benevolent Fund

This college was set up half a century ago to primarily cater to the needs of a migrant population. Since then the primarily semi-rural location of this college has ensured that even now we serve to educate many first generation learners. The primary aim of generating a Students’ Benevolent Fund is to provide financial aids to the poor yet meritorious students of the college. Way back in 10.7.2007 the Teachers’ Council (a statutory body) of the college unanimously resolved that all the teachers of this college enjoying monthly salary in the acquittance roll as substantive employees will generate a fund for the welfare of the students of this college. Accordingly all the teachers contribute a fixed amount from their monthly salary through salary deduction to crate the Students’ Benevolent Fund.

The amount of contribution by the teachers are reviewed and revised from time to time addressing rise in the price index. The Principal of our college in addition to his contribution at per with all the teachers also donates the entire amount he is entitled to for performing the duties as the Centre-in-charge of all the university examinations to the Students Benevolent Fund.

Coordinator: Dr. Arabinda Das (Dept. of Statistics) & Dr. Gouri Kumar Nanda (Dept. of Education)
