Medical Assistance

The college has taken some special initiatives towards providing medical assistance to the students. We can highlight the following things:

  1. Very recently, a policy has been adopted to bring the students under ‘Students Safety Insurance Policy’ of United India Insurance Company Limited. This scheme provides insurance support to the policy holder in case of any accident as per the terms and conditions laid down in the policy. Initially 1500 students admitted to the 1st year classes of the under graduate course in the session 2015-2016 has been included under this scheme. An Amount of Rs. 112/- plus the service tax @14.5% is paid by each student towards the annual premium of this scheme. We are planning to include all students of this college under this scheme.
