SC/ST CELL

Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) have been identified as the two most backward groups of Indian Society. They include all the castes, races or tribes, which have been socially, economically and educationally backward. The cell has been established to support and to bring students from such communities in the main stream. It also undertakes the activities to develop awareness among the SC/ST students especially from the rural areas about the role of VSM College in higher education avenues. The main aim of the Cell is to monitor the guidelines issued by the MHRD, the University Grants Commission and by the government of Andhra Pradesh from time to time.



To fulfil the prescribed UGC norms, the SC/ST Cell was constituted in 2016 at VSM College as a means for caring SC/ST students, teaching and administrative staffs’ amenities. The members of the staff in the cell are actively engaged in co-ordinating and solving the problems in matters of admissions and resources utilization in the college.
