Extra Curicular Committee
INTRODUCTION TO THE ECC COMMITTEE
The ECC Committee handles the mandatory 60 ECC hours of each student which are required to be completed during the course of their study. Workshops, activities and events are organized throughout the entire academic year to aid the students in completing their 60 hours; a cluster of them taking place in the month of Feb under the banner of Extra Curricular Carnival.
The ECC committee also manages the contingent and provides a platform for proliferation of talent which is done by holding auditions for the contingent team every semester (keep checking the ECC Board in the Foyer).

3. How do I earn ECC Hours?
A. ECC hours can be earned by participating in college festivals. (Malhar, Janfest and Ithaka are just some of the few) Hours can be earned by those who participate either as part of the contingent or workforce. But festivals aren’t the only way to earn hours; hours are also awarded when students participate in ECC workshops
4. What is the procedure for checking my ECC hours?
A. As of 2015, the entire process of registering ECC hours is now in the form of an online database. Students can log into the portal using their UID no. and check the updated status of their ECC hours
5. Do I have to submit any forms?

6. I’m currently in the SY/TY. What happens to the forms I have already submitted?
A. The batch of 2016 (TY) and 2015 (SY) have already submitted ECC Forms. The details received from these forms will most certainly be taken into account and registered with the database.
