One of the perennial problems that is confronted with our nation is ‘unemployment’. This problem is acute among Educated Youth, Millions of Graduates and Post-Graduates in various disciplines have registered with Employment Exchanges. Very rarely they get interviews and got selected. Even here they do not get proper employment for which they deserve resulting in under employment. The financial crunch faced by both state and Central Governments has almost closed openings for employment in Government Services. Disinvestment in Public Sector Organisations coupled with liberalized approach of the governments towards privatization may create scope for employment in Private Sector. But there is a danger of the employees being exploited by scrupulous managements. Considering these problems, the Governments have now come forward to encourage new entrepreneurs from educated unemployed youth. Technical and Financial Institutions have been suitably instructed to extend the required help by all means to the intending entrepreneurs. Service Organisations volunteer to provide the necessary services to the new venturists.
It is in this context felt necessary to organise Entrepreneurship Development Cell in our college with a view to encourage students going out of our institution after completing their studies, to take up self-employment oriented projects as their life career.
All the final year students of the Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate Courses shall be eligible for enrolling as members.
