Students Induction covered a number of different aspects (SAGE):

Follow Up after Induction by the assigned mentor will help these groups on fulfilling requirements of newly admitted students with regards to linguistics / communication skills. Bridge preparatory courses may be offered for weak students in other subjects also. This group will remain for the entire duration of stay of the student in the college.
