The Grievance Redressal Cell is not merely a complaint redressal cell. Rather, it is an outlet for channelizing physical and emotional discomforts which impacts teaching-learning within the classroom and campus on the whole. The Grievance Redressal Cell, as the College view it, provides an emotional space for expression of personal, social and professional grievances, eventually forcing redressal of the same.
