The students were allotted different works in various departments of the University.
The students are allotted work for about three hours in a day and paid for it. The scheme really boosted the economically weak students from rural area living in hostels. Many of them were working outside even as waiters in hotels and bars. The University, which is suffering due to inadequate non-teaching staff, is also benefited as the students are useful in carrying out routine works.
