PUs Engineering Institute Awarded the One District One Green Champion under its Swachhta Action Plan

In recognition of its efforts in furthering the scope of technology while shaping communities, Parul Institute of Engineering and Technology Diploma studies, was recently awarded “One District One Green Champion” for Vadodara District. The award was granted in line with the University’s efforts towards developing  the best practices in Sanitation & Hygiene, Waste Management, Water management, Energy Management and Greenery by Mahatma Gandhi National Council of Rural Education, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education, Government of India. The award was granted on the 4th of August 2021 in the presence of Honourable Shri R.B. Barad, District Collector. 

The Institution has successfully set up the Swachhta Action Plan Committee headed by Principal Dr. Ruchi Shrivastava and coordinated by Asst. Professor Rajshree Kokate, adopted and implemented best practices in the areas concerned with shaping and developing the natural environment and ensuring public wellness. We believe that there is no service which is higher than the service which is rendered to the society. The Swachhta Action Plan Committee plays the pivotal role of facilitating various platforms for promoting social awareness, and ensuring social welfare. The committee not only utilises social schemes and campaigns but also makes use of technology and research for providing the most innovative solutions.

The process of education is truly fulfilled not only when the individual lends to fend for himself but when the individual learns to serve the society. In this regard, our commitment has been decimated towards ensuring that our students learn to utilize their education for the betterment of the society. With the contemporary concerns of our times, such as gender discrimination, climate change, floods and disease out-breaks. our efforts have been committed towards providing the most effective forms of relief and solutions for the betterment of the society. 

The District Collector quoted Mahatma Gandhiji in his remarks and emphasized on the need to develop an effective partnership which is centred towards providing assistance to students to be the change they want to see in the community.  He went on to share on creating consciousness among the student community to plant medicinal and fruit bearing trees in their communities.
