Based on the requirement projected by the Participating Institutions under Regional Coordinating Institute IISER, Thiruvananthapuram towards creating provision for awarding grace marks to student volunteers under UBA, so as to attract more students to UBA related activities, a proposal was submitted by this RCI to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University under whom all the technical institutions in Kerala are affiliated.
The awarding of activity points for UBA volunteers was discussed in the 7th Meeting of the Academic Council, where it was approved. The Academic Council decided to award activity points to the UBA volunteers, similar to that of NSS volunteers. With persistent efforts from IISER, the proposal has now been granted by APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University.
So from now onwards, the student volunteers of UBA from all the Institutions affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University will be eligible for award activity points, similar to NSS volunteers.
Many congratulations to IISER for all the efforts being carried out to encourage students for participating actively in Unnat Bharat Abhiyan. Wishing many more successes! Unnat Ho!!
