BOOK BANK

The difficulties of the students to buy costly text books are solved partially by the Book Bank Scheme. Purchase of books of such purposes are restricted to prescribed text books only. Initially, some financial assistance was provided by the District Welfare Officer for purchase of books for the Book Bank. Now they have totally stopped it. Presently it is self managed by the revenue earned from the students. Depending on the requirement of the students new books are purchased before the start of an academic session.

The books are suitably distributed among the students keeping in view the norm that one set of books is meant for 7 students, for entire course. The allotment of books are decided by lottery and the students are to bear 1/8th of the cost of the books. The books should be returned to the Book Bank at the end of each Semester.

The students who drop out in the middle should ensure that the books in their name are returned back to the Book Bank.

It is the responsibility of the students to maintain the books supplied to them from Book Bank in Good Condition. Any case of loss or damage to the book shall lead to penalty. In case of serious damages also the student has to bear the full cost of replacement of the books.
