In February 2012, the College started the Coaching classes for its registered SC/ST/OBC (excluding creamy layer) and Minorities students under the Merged Scheme of XI Plan, UGC. These classes were attended by enthusiastic students from these backgrounds, who showed keen interest in learning and benefited from professional coaching by experts from their respective fields. About 200 students were benefited from these classes in the academic years 2011-2012, 2012-13 and 2013-14. In addition to coaching classes, these students were provided study materials such as books/ computer facilities, news paper, competitive magazines and on line resource materials etc. The faculty members of the college and some experts from outside, who have vast experience in their respective field were engaged as coordinator / instructor. The main focus of the resource person was on to improve the area in which students face difficulties so that the students can compete in different exams. The periodical tests/review and the assessment reports were prepared by the resource persons and the students were apprised about their weakness.
However, due to discontinuation of this scheme & lack of grants, college unfortunately stopped the coaching classes.
In the light of the growing demand for the continuation of coaching classes in the college, the letter has been sent to UGC with a request to release funds & continue this scheme for the benefits of the students.
Kalindi College, University of Delhi and Sanskriti Foundation organized a Workshop on Career Counselling on 12th April, 2018 for the students to improve their academic skills for employment and provide them career guidance for competitive examinations.
