Donation of Computers

An important aspect of teaching  and learning is  usage of digital tools and techniques. Creation of suitable infrastructure for digitisation especially in rural areas is extremely important. In view of this, the Institute on the occasion of the Republic Day, January 26, 2021, donated a set of 10 computers to the Zilla Parishad Primary School  and one computer to the Priyadarshani Public  Library in village Gubal of  Ausa taluka in   district Latur of Maharashtra.

Donation of Books

The Institute recognises that quality reference books may not be available to a number of students seeking knowledge due to shortages of books in the college libraries and very high prices of some of the books. In view of the same, Dhananjayrao Gadgil Library of the Institute donated over 1000 books to Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Samaj Karya Mahavidyalaya, district Buldhana in the month of October 2020.
