About SC/ST CELL
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has given priority to the downtrodden students and staffs during IX plan period and given direction to all the universities to establish SC/ST Cell. The SC/ST Cell at Vijayanagara Sri Krishnadevaraya University Ballari was constituted in the year 2012. After the establishment of the Cell in the university, it specifically concentrated on the welfare of the SC/ST students and staffs. The main aim of the Cell is to monitor the guidelines issued by the MHRD, the University Grants Commission and by the government of Karnataka from time to time. The Cell ensures the effective implementation of the reservation policies in the university admissions to students in various courses of studies, accommodation in the hostels, appointments to the teaching and non-teaching posts, and allotment of quarters, establishment of Book Bank in the university, and maintenance of roster register in the University.
