The cleanliness drive of the college commenced with the students, teachers and the staff of the college taking the Swachh Bharat pledge. Through the pledge the students and staff of the college committed themselves

  • to remain committed towards cleanliness and devote time for this.
  • to devote 100 hours per year that is two hours per week to voluntary work for cleanliness.
  • to neither litter nor let others litter.
  • to initiate the quest for cleanliness with oneself, one's own family, locality, village and work place.
  • to believe that the countries of the world that appear clean are so because their citizens don’t indulge in littering nor do they allow it to happen.
  • to propagate the message of Swachh Bharat Mission in villages and towns.
  • to encourage 100 other persons to take this pledge.
  • to endeavour to make them devote their 100 hours for cleanliness.
  • to be confident that every step taken towards cleanliness will help in making the country clean.

The cleanliness drive included both the cleaning of not only each and every classroom and laboratory but also the entire campus and the adjacent areas and roads. The building maintenance committee of the college had made arrangements for adequate availability of brooms, mops and cleaning agents for all the participants. Participants were also given gloves and masks for taking care of personal health and hygiene while doing the cleaning work. The cleanliness drive continued till the entire campus was cleared of all litterings.

As part of its commitment to the mission, the Internal Social Responsibility (ISR) society has formed student squads who will monitor cleanliness in every nook and corner of the college on a daily basis. The Eco-Club and Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) are undetaking a e-waste collection drive in collaboration with NGO Chintan. All waste papers of the college will also be sent for recycling with the help of NGO Jaaguriti. The college also plans to install a rapid composting facility to convert all the wet and dry organic wastes in to valuable manure.
