Book Bank

At the beginning of the academic year, students from low-income groups are provided with a set of recommended books, as per their request and           availability of books. The Book Bank is enriched every year with standard textbooks on different subjects.

The scheme has been very successful as it allows poor and deserving students to get access to books and helps in their learning. Students are advised to familiarize themselves with Book Bank Rules and take advantage of the scheme. The Book Bank scheme, along with the Rules, is notified at the beginning of the year.
