ABOUT RGNUL SC/ST WELFARE CELL


Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes have been identified as the weaker sections of the Indian Society. They include all such castes, races or tribes, which have been declared as scheduled castes and scheduled tribes under the provisions of Article 341 and 342 of the Constitution of India. Scheduled Castes generally represent those communities, which have suffered from the stigma of untouchability in one form or the other. Scheduled Tribes are generally those who have been living in seclusion in hills and forests, more or less untouched by modern civilization and development.

The Constitution of India, promulgated in 1950, recognizes the Scheduled castes and the Scheduled tribes as requiring special protection. A number of provisions have been made in the Constitution with a view to abolish all forms of discrimination and put these groups at par with others. We, at RGNUL, Punjab, have taken a small initiative in this concern under the able leadership of our worthy vice-chancellor Professor (Dr.) Paramjit S. Jaswal by establishing an SC/ST Welfare Cell.

The RGNUL SC/ST Welfare Cell at RGNUL, Punjab, has been set up to ensure proper implementation of various schemes of UGC, Government of India and State Government regarding scholarships etc. for the welfare of the reserved categories. The SC/ST Welfare Cell also intends to ensure the effective implementation of the reservation policy in admission of students and recruitment of teaching and non-teaching staff at various levels. Besides sensitizing the academic community about the problems faced by the people of SC/ST category, the Cell also looks into their overall general welfare and other related matters.

The Special Cell for the welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab, is working towards the attainment of following objectives:

i)           To watch the proper progress and implementation of the Reservation Policy pertaining to the admission and other benefits of the SC/ST students

ii)            To function as a Grievances Redressal Cell for the Grievances of SC/ST students and employees of the university and render them necessary help in solving their academic as well as administrative problems

iii)            Maintaining all types of record and providing required information from time to time to the University Grant Commission/National Commission for Scheduled Castes and National Commission for Scheduled Tribes.

iv)       Any other work assigned from time to time to promote higher education among these two communities suffering economic, social and education deprivations

v)         The SC/ST Welfare Cell takes initiative in organizing awareness programmes, workshops, seminars etc.

vi)                The SC/ST Welfare Cell also looks into overall general welfare and other related matters
