OBC/PWD/Minority cell

OBC/PWD and Minorities cell



India pledged to create a socially just and equitable society when it attained independence.  Several sections in the Special Provisions of the CONSTITUTION OF INDIA strive to eliminate discrimination and allow members of various groups to participate equally and freely in public life. The Indian Constitution has various specific provisions in favor of OBC/PWD and Minorities.

An Institute of National Importance under the Ministry of Education, Govt. of India, NIT Trichy strives to establish an inclusive and unbiased environment for pupils from all backgrounds. To maintain a discrimination-free environment, the OBC/PWD and Minorities cell is responsible for teaching the campus community about the value of equality and diversity.

Several initiatives have been put in place by NIT Trichy to help OBC/PWD and Minorities pupils, including the appointment of a prominent faculty member as Chairman and a Nodal Officer for OBC/PWD and Minorities cell to oversee all cell operations.
