Best Practices:

PRAKRUTHI-ECO-CLUB, A step towards Green and Clean Ambience

The negative impact of the current lifestyle on the environment makes it necessary to pay more attention to human environmental behaviour. Young people constitute a large part of the world’s population and will have to live longer with the consequences of current environmental decisions than their elders.

Eco club will help to promote, monitor and operate the environment activities of the college. The whole college community along with staff members are involved in some capacity in programmes operated and monitored by the club.

Prakruthi to take the initiative of empowering students to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects. It is a forum through which students are influenced, to engage their parents and neighbourhood communities to promote sound environmental behaviour.


Awareness among the students will help them to avoid environmental pollution and conserve natural resources .Eco club encourages the participation of students in learning about, and improving their environment. It helps students develop their personal skills. Eco-club is a means by which students can organize themselves to learn more about the issue, and also take action to improve their immediate environment. Prakruthi establishes a focal point for sustainable activities and programmes in the college and creating a sustainable campus.


Encouraged public transportation and Car/Scooter pooling among students and staff members. The target was average 50 percent. The success result among the staff members is 69 percent, among the students it is 70 percent. This is the evidence of success. In the making and distribution of paper bags the target was 50 percent, but the success rate was high among the students with 67 percent and among the staff it was 45 percent. Another notable evidence of Eco Club success is the use of steel utensils instead of plastic plates, cups and water bottles. During the college programmes, refreshments and food items are served in Areca Leaf Plates and reusable Melamine Plates and the use of plastic in Flower bouquets and garlands is avoided.


The students come from socio-economically backward, financial contributions cannot be expected from them for eco campaigns to protect environment. Added to this most of the students work after the college hours and hence they will not be able to attend activities conducted for environmental awareness after the college hours. Making the College Campus Plastic-Free is a gradual process and requires a lot of time and cleanliness drives must be undertaken outside the college premises, but they are usually difficult to undertake. Any Eco initiative to be successful the most important resource is man-power. In our institution with the combined effort of staff and students we will be able to generate this important resource to make activities of Prakruthi a success.

SOCIAL AWARENESS AMONG STUDENTS, The First step towards change is awareness

Digital communication, social networking, video conferencing and other forms of new media contribute to social isolation and are often blamed for the reduction in rapport among youngsters. There is a huge trouble when there is no empathy among people, when they don't work to understand the needs of others. Hence there is a significant loss of trust. This can have major implications with regards to social behaviour. In society interaction is essential to gain trust for successful relationships. Social awareness builds emotional quotient among students and make students to experience elements of peace, self-respect and discipline.


Lecture sessions are held by class teachers to create social awareness among students. Students are given opportunities to share their ideas as well as issues by expressing their views with teachers on a wide range through activities like seminars, intercollegiate competitions, guest lectures, other extracurricular activities etc. In order to showcase the problems faced by them in society, students are made to perform skits and other awareness related activities on important days like Independence Day, Republic Day, Gandhi Jayanthi and College Day.

Students are encouraged to participate in programs conducted by the different colleges will educate them about election and politics. This will help students to share their views. Students are also made aware about health issues. They are also guided by the NSS faculty about how to tackle the health issues and remain healthy with a balance diet. Students are encouraged to eat hygienic and healthy food. Blood donation camps are being conducted periodically by NSS with the active participation of students, teaching and non-teaching staff. This will help thousands of patients who are in need of blood. Students are even encouraged to actively participate in blood donation camps arranged by other colleges/organisations.NSS conducts Annual Camps for students in the vicinity of the villages around Bangalore. Our students educate the ruralites in keeping the village clean. The college has zero tolerance for ragging. Awareness programs are held by Anti-Ragging Committee yearly. Strict actions are taken by the committee against ragging cases registered if any. From the beginning college has always encouraged students, from financially and socially backward classes in order to shape their life.


Students have been registered for NSS for the Academic year 2018-2019. Twenty students from the college actively participated in an audience based interactive election programme held by DD News National Channel on 28th March 2019 (Thursday) from 7 PM to 9 PM called “JANMAT” at Doordarshan Kendra, where leaders of prominent political parties and eminent persons from different walks of life were also present. The programme was subsequently telecasted on DD News Channel and DD Chandana on succeeding days.

Students donated 155 units of blood for needy patients at Blood Donation Camp conducted by NSS. During the camp two male and female faculties were deputed to the Camp to take care of the students and assist the NSS officers. Here, Programmes like Medical check-ups, Environmental awareness programmes, Cultural programmes were held. Students created awareness among villagers about health and cleanliness for which villagers gave “Appreciation Certificate” to NSS unit of the college. Cleanliness drives are held throughout the year by NSS students to maintain tidiness in society
