SC/ST Cell (SCSTC)

The SC/ST Cell was established in the university to co-ordinate with the university authorities in the implementation of the various policies and programmes launched by the State Government and the UGC for the benefit of the SC/ST students and employees. It also undertakes the activities to develop awareness among the SC/ST students especially from the rural areas about the role of Krishna University in higher education avenues. The members of the staff in the cell are actively engaged in coordinating and solving the problems in matters of admissions/appointments and resources utilization in the university. They also announce details of government scholarships and fellowships through circulars to the SC/ST students. The Cell concentrates on the implementation of the rules of reservation in student's admission and appointments in teaching and non-teaching position as well as monitoring the prevention of atrocities against the laid down groups. The cell aims at providing educational opportunities to those, who are economically and socially deprived, in the higher education institution.
Moreover, the SC/ST Cell has taken up problems of the SC/ST students and employees with the university authorities and has solved some of them amicably. The cell, in the ultimate analysis, has been a user friendly counselor to all SC/ST employees and students. The University is providing statistical information periodically and promptly on all aspects to the Government of India, and the Government of Andhra Pradesh. The SC/ST Cell offers guidance to various University Committees in respect to recruitments/promotions based on the latest rule position concerning SC/ST reservations.
