INTRODUCTION

The Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Minority Cell of Surya Sen Mahavidyalaya was started in 2017 to promote the special interests of students in the reserved category. For affirmative action, the college is committed to effectively implementing the Reservation Policy as stipulated by the government. The SC, ST and Minority Cell of Surya Sen Mahavidyalaya ensures equitable and accessible space of learning to its category and minority students. The Cell makes all efforts to empower these students. The Cell runs orientation programme and provides information on various scholarships provided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development and Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment for the category students. The Cell provides special inputs in areas where the students experience difficulties. The Cell also organizes Talks and Seminars on the current issues to keep the students engaged and informed.
