Action Plan 2K20-21.

About the Organisation

Abhyuday, started in 2014, with a group of socially inclined students who felt the need for a body, which provides opportunities to the students of the institute who wish to work for a better society. With a vision to channelize the youth towards India's social challenges, Abhyuday has established itself as one of the country’s largest student run social body in the mere span of 4 years. Our flagship being campaigns, we also conduct year long events like conferences, donation drives, exhibitions and provide social fellowship, internship opportunities to the students of the institute. The ‘Social Fest’ usually held in January is a two day extravaganza that celebrates the spirit of social good.
