  • EQUAL OPPORTUNITY CELL (for SC, ST, OBC & Minority) – Galsi Mahavidyalaya




    India is a country of diversity. It is a hub of different religions, castes and cultures. However, the Indian society is characterized by a highly entrenched system of social stratification. It is these social inequalities that created the barriers of denial of access to materials, cultural and educational resources to the disadvantaged groups of society. These disadvantaged groups are SCs, STs, women, OBC (non-creamy layer), minorities and physically challenged persons. It is clear from the demographic factors that a large section of population of our country is still disadvantaged and marginalized.
    The Indian education system seems to have been oriented only to meet the requirement of one-third of the population, ignoring the interest of the rest. Indeed, historically education was confined to certain sections of the society and did exclude large sections of the population, making it highly undemocratic in matters of access. This exclusion in education created ever expanding disparities that adversely affected the disadvantaged groups of the society.
    Equal Opportunity Cell is needed to ensure that students and staff belonging to various diverse backgrounds of community, religion, region, gender or ability are not deprived of their basic opportunities. With this vision an Equal Opportunity Cell has been instituted at Galsi Mahavidyalaya with the purpose of assisting students and staff hailing from underprivileged backgrounds, marginalised section encompassing Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), and Other Backward Classes (OBC).

    Aims and Objectives

    • To oversee the effective implementation of policies and programmes for disadvantaged groups, to provide guidance and counselling with respect to academic, financial, social and other matters and to enhance the diversity within the campus.

    • To booster students’ confidence and extend financial aid through dissemination of information regarding diverse scholarship schemes offered by the Government of West Bengal. The Cell is steadfast in its dedication to ensuring parity in opportunities for all students, regardless of their socio-economic background, gender, or ethnicity.
