R.T.M. Nagpur University, Nagpur vide its letter dt. 3/10/2020 directed all the affiliated colleges to raise College Student Responsibility Fund, aiming to develop all-round personality of students.
The practice of establishment of the fund aims to help the students coming from poor and downtrodden society.
All the teaching and non-teaching staff members will contribute minimum Rs. 100/ (voluntary contribution) to help needy students whose yearly income is below 6,00,000/.

Education is the only leveler of many disparities- be it socio-economic background, access to health care and hygiene or access to education etc. prevalent in the society. But right
help at the right time will bridge the gaps by helping poor and needy students with monetary support.
Student Development Cell, constituted in the college, called for a meeting and informed and sought the consent of the staff for monthly voluntary contribution of Rs. 100/ from the salary to
help poor, needy and eligible students. Total Rs.41050/ deposited in the account.
Problems encountered and resources required:
Due to Covid-19 Pandemic students could not come to the college physically. But the institution is committed to extend help to poor, needy and eligible students with respect of admission and examination fees, participation in conference, workshop, paper presentation, patent registration fees etc.
The money collected will be utilized for these purposes. Our student, MayuriSurendraPatle of B.A. First Year was given financial help of Rs. 26,050/- to bear medical expenses as she hails from economically poor background.
In order to extend financial help, we need more individuals and philanthropers and institutions to come forward to help students on larger scale.
