The Committee Against Caste Discrimination (CACD) addresses issues relating to caste discrimination within the University. The Committee also proactively works towards caste based discrimination policies, grievance redressal procedures, as well as sensitization programmes for both existing and incoming batches of students.
Constitution of the Committee:
The University Grants Commission (UGC ) requested for a page to be developed on the University website for lodging complaints of caste discrimination by SC/ST students and to constitute a Committee to look into the discriminating complaints received by the SC/ST students, teaching, and non-teaching staff. Accordingly, a Committee was constituted to look into the discriminating complaints and to submit a report with suggestions. The Official Order for the constitution of the Committee is available here.
