RECycle gives a new lease of life to discarded bicycles at NIT-T

Quote:
Abandoned by outgoing students, old unused bicycles were turning scrap in the hostel parking of National Institute of Technology (NIT) Trichy.

The share cycle concept initiated by NIT Trichy Resource Recovery Organization (NITTRRO) in the name of RECycle has given life to hundreds of such bicycles preventing them from becoming scrap.

RECycle- the official bicycle share program launched by a section of students, few years ago, has successfully refurbished 225 bicycles and has let them for rent to the be used in the sprawling 800 acre NIT-T campus. The concept was coined by members of Task Force, a student run organisation catering to students' needs.

First year students joining NIT prefer coming along with a bicycle to travel from hostels to student activity center and classrooms. Unable to take the bicycles back, majority of the outgoing students leave their bicycles in the hostel parking, which over time turned scrap.

"The idea was to make students' life easier at the campus, by providing bicycles at affordable price and also promotes entrepreneurship," says final year student S Nirmal Kumar, who is also the president of Task Force.

Over 700 used bicycles were identified in the college hostel and almost half of it was damaged beyond recovery. Out of them, we could bring about 225 bicycles on road in the in the first phase, about a past couple of years ago.

The task force is planning to bring a few hundred bicycles on road in the upcoming months, which are lying idle in the parking lot.

These bicycles are not just used by the students but also by the teachers and it would also be rented out to visitors on hourly basis.

V Pakkkiriswamy, a retired teaching faculty from the production engineering department had used it for three months till he retired a few days ago. Terming it to be an extremely satisfying experience, he appreciated the service provided by the RECycle team. "Though I used it for just three months, I was receiving frequent mails and calls asking for my suggestions on the service. Above all, I spent only a few hundreds on the service which would have otherwise cost me a few thousands, if I had to purchase a new bicycle," he said.

"Those availing a two-year subscription are also entitled for free servicing for the whole period, in tie up with the bicycle service centres in the premises," says R Ram, another student member from Task Force. RECycle also promotes bicycling in the campus as a healthy exercise and fitness option, encouraging students towards green transport, added Ram.

While every year 1,000 new bicycles are added in the campus, our aim is to reduce the numbers to zero. While we are two years old, last year outgoing students had donated their bicycles and we expect that to continue in the upcoming years, which would be used for RECycle, said Nirmal.

Industry partners asked to contribute their share for IIIT

The State Government has reportedly asked industry partners to release their contribution for building up capital asset for the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Tiruchi.

The Central Government, State Government and industry partners are required to contribute funds in the ratio of 50:35:15 as per the MoU signed before the start of the academic and research institution that became functional from 2013-14, under non-profit Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.

The permanent campus of the IIIT-T is expected to come up in 56 acres of land identified in Sethurappatti village, 15 km away from the city along the Tiruchi-Madurai Highway.

Earlier this year, the transitional board of IIIT-T resolved to request the Department of Technical Education to communicate to all industry stakeholders, including Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS), Infosys, Ramco Systems, ELCOT, and Navitas (Take Solutions), about the contribution they are expected to make.

Since last academic year when the mentorship of IITT-T was transferred from Anna University to National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi, the institution has been functioning in the temporary buildings in NITT.

Things will get moving once the permanent board is constituted for the IIIT-T, according to a senior Government official.

The transitional board has its own limitations and cannot take decisions that entails huge financial expenditure or large-scale appointments.

In his letter dated June 21, 2017, addressed to the Mentor Director of IIIT-T Mini Shaji Thomas, IIIT Srirangam, the Commissioner of Technical Education, Directorate of Technical Education, had also sought approval of the Transitional Board for constitution of Finance Committee and Building and Works Committee. But, approval for these two requests were withheld citing the need for formation of a regular board.

The transitional board, however, ratified the merger of B.Tech IT of 2015-16 batch with B.Tech CSE of the same year batch from 2016-17.

At present, the IIT-T is functioning with two branches in B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering, and Electronics and Communication Engineering.

TNNLS to conduct free legal service camps

The Tamil Nadu National Law School (TNNLS) has plans to reach out to villages through conduct of free legal service camps from January next year, for broad-basing utility of its legal aid clinic. Though there has been a gradual increase in the number of aggrieved people to the legal aid clinic being run in the TNNLS campus at Navalur Kuttapattu every week since its inception in 2013, it has received feedback from the rural parts that the bus connectivity is a major hindrance.

The legal aid clinic functions from 3.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. on all Wednesdays. But, the visitors coming from villages face difficulty in returning to their homes due to the poor transport connectivity. Hence, there is a move to move out to villages and conduct free legal aid camps, Deepa Manickam, Faculty In-Charge of Legal Aid Committee, TNNLS, said.

An advocate along with student members of the Committee try to solve the issues, mainly pertaining to matrimony, property dispute, and debts, then and there. In some cases, the grievances are converted into petitions for pursuance by District Legal Services Authority, Ms. Manickam said.

The students of TNNLS have been taking part in moot court competitions, seminars, conferences and extra-curricular activities in various parts of the country to make their presence felt. Through the Legal Aid Committee, the students have, so far, conducted awareness programs in six institutions, including three schools in rural parts.

The latest legal awareness program was conducted last week at St. Joseph's College, benefiting 650 students. The hour-long program encompassed awareness sessions on RTI Act 2005 Cyber Crimes, Ill-effects and legislations against narcotics, and Domestic Violence Act.

A street play depicting outrage of modesty of a woman and ragging, a mime on Rights of Arrested persons and a short film on the Sexual Harassment of Women at workplace Act, 2013, also formed part of the awareness program.

College Principal Rev Fr. Andrew joined the students during the awareness program.

Last month, the Legal Aid Committee hosted its second edition of the intra-university “La Festo”, its flagship event featuring competitions aimed at promoting the advocacy and drafting skills of the law students like RTI, PIL drafting, and extempore.

Bridging the parents-children divide

Students at the open panel session

Quote:
‘Healthy Parenting’ session highlights need to clear misconceptions of parents about children’s needs

An open panel session on ‘Healthy Parenting’ at Kattur on Sunday came as a rude awakening for parents, highlighting the need to clear their misconceptions about their children’s needs, future and career.

Towards the end of the three-hour session held at Monfort School that took the form of a talk show, parents realised that the onus was on them to alter their approach, more so after their children made no bones of their unhappiness with their “cloistered mindset”.

The session turned out to be a platform for hundreds of parents to contemplate what they had in their minds for their wards and shed their take-them-for-granted attitude. “They were made to realise a simple fact that acrimony in parent-children relationship could be erased by spending time together, interacting, and understanding one another,” Victor Louis, Professor, Loyola Institute of Business Administration, Chennai, said.

Of course, parents could not be faulted for worrying about the future career of their wards. But then, students had their own ambitions. The chasm could be bridged only through interactions based on sound relationship. “For the demystification to happen, parents need to spend time with children at home with an open mind,” Prof. Anthuvan said, adding that parents and teachers must know that students want to be heard.

The process of mental churn aimed at dispelling the disconnect amongst parents, students and teachers was piloted by the moderator, Fr. Joe Arun, Director, St. Joseph's Institute of Management.

Rev. Fr. Joe was joined by the panelists, Rev. Dr. Wilson, Director, Anugraha Centre for Counselling and Guidance, Rev. Dr. Lawrence, Centre Secretary, and the chief guest, Antony, Director, ‘Neeya Naana’ teleprogramme, in prevailing upon parents and teachers that the dreams of students about their future must be respected.

“Students have dreams about their future, which is unrelated to what they study, and parents are worried about the future of their wards, while teachers are worried about completing the text book syllabi. All three are stuck in the system. It was in this context that the open panel discussion sought to bring about a convergence,” Fr. Joe said.

The students were also made to understand the importance of being flexible towards the parents in the context of harsh socio-economic realities, he said.

“The effort was meant to generate happiness in the family system born out of understanding one another. We need to build a society that connects the aspirations of parents, teachers and students. This is the need of the hour,” School Principal Rev. Br. Soosairaj said.

NBFC Indian School Finance plans to raise $30-35 million from PE investors

Quote:
Indian School Finance Co. Pvt. Ltd (ISFC), which lends to companies in the education sector, is looking to raise around $30-35 million (approximately Rs200-230 crore) from private equity investors, said two people aware of the development.

ISFC, a non-banking financial services company (NBFC), founded in 2008, lends to schools and education institutions.

It lends to private schools, affordable schools, vocational institutes and coaching classes to help them build their infrastructure such as setting up of computer and science labs, construction of additional floors or wings in existing premises or for implementing teaching delivery methodologies such as digital classrooms.

“ISFC has appointed Deloitte to advise them on their latest fundraising plans and they have started reaching out to investors. They are looking to raise around $30-35 million in this round,” said one of the two people cited above, requesting anonymity as he is not authorized to speak to reporters.

The latest fundraising round will comprise a primary and a secondary share component, said the second person cited above, also requesting anonymity.

“The existing investors of IFSC are likely to sell part of their stakes in this round. The primary capital will be used to expand the company’s loan book,” said the second person.

IFSC counts impact investors Grey Matters Capital and Caspian Impact Advisors as its investors.

In October 2016, IFSC raised $6 million from Grey Matters Capital.

“We are in process of fundraising and have appointed Deloitte for the same, we will share the relevant details at appropriate time,” Neeraj Sharma, chief executive officer and managing director of ISFC, said in an email response to questions on the company’s fundraising plans.

According to filings with the registrar of companies (RoC), ISFC’s gross loan portfolio stood at Rs285.26 crore as of 31 March 2017, with gross non-performing assets (NPA) of Rs4.14 crore. The company reported a profit of Rs4.56 crore in 2016-17.

ISFC has presence in 13 states, with offices in cities such as Hyderabad, Jaipur, Bengaluru, New Delhi, Pune, Nagpur and Trichy.

Financing education institutions, though a niche sector in the NBFC space, has seen traction lately with investors, with several companies raising funds or out in the market to raise funds.
