Backward Class (SC/ST/OBC) and Minority Cell

Bethune College has always upheld the spirit of the Indian Constitution in providing equal opportunities to all sections of society in the sphere of higher education, especially to the Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) and Minorities who have been identified as the most backward groups. The Backward Class and Minority Cell was established to support and empower the students of our college belonging to the backward and minority section. The Indian Constitution includes Article 340, Article 29 and Article 30 for the protection and development of the backward and minority section. The college remains committed to the spirit of the Constitution in protecting the rights of students from these sections. View Details

Anti Ragging Cell

The College has an Anti-ragging Cell headed by the Principal. This has been constituted as per the existing UGC norms. At the beginning of every academic year both the freshers and the senior students of the College are made aware of the ragging related rules and regulations by the Principal herself. The Cell, in its turn, directs the respective departments and the Students' Union to keep close watch on the students and to report immediately the untoward incident, if any, for appropriate action. Bethune College being a heritage college has a very good ambiance maintained by both the staff as well as the students. Perhaps, this prevalent culture is one of the reasons why hardly any incident of ragging has been reported till date.  View Details
