In a world where technocrats have often been branded money minded and self centered, the students of NIT Patna have come up with various social initiatives alongside some other institutes. Movements under the name of KARTAVAYA and SANKALPA have come up towards realizing this goal through the students.
Through Kartavaya, students have taken the moral responsibility of educating the under privileged slum children and helping them to get admission into some good schools.
In Sankalpa the emphasis is on providing medical, financial and moral support to orphans and providing free medicines at the old age home. But what they actually provide is something that is priceless and that is – affection and care.
