Thisprogram is aimed at crafting new opportunities, improving the self-image and imparting employability skills to the students, a sizeable number of who are from thedisadvantaged socio-economic background. Naipunya Nidhi is an inclusive training module for all students of undergraduate program. Naipunya Nidhi has trainingprogrammes rich in content, delivered using novel teaching tools like EDUSAT.



The first year students are trained in communication English. Conversational and writing skills are honed through intense training in form and functions of thelanguage.



The second year students are trained in social skills and Indian culture. This training template aims at helping the students develop self-respect, healthyrelationship, emotional intelligence, goal-setting and time management, leadership qualities and creates awareness about values and ethics.
