GRIEVANCE REDRESSAL CELL
It is good to air a grievance rather than to keep it bottled up. To realize the primary needs of the students and staff, and secure civil liberties for everybody, a Grievance Redressal Cell has been constituted in Hajee Karutha Rowther Howdia College. The cell attempts to address genuine problems and complaints of students whatever be the nature of the problem. The Grievance Redressal Cell convenes meetings periodically and takes steps to redress the grievance.
The objective of the Grievance Redressal Cell is to develop a responsive and accountable attitude among all the stakeholders in order to maintain a harmonious educational atmosphere in the Institution.
The objectives of the Grievance Redressal Cell are:
- To ensure effective solution to the student grievance with an impartial and fair approach

“Healing takes place when grievances are given ample and patient space to be acknowledged, when there is transparency and honesty, when everybody is given the chance to be heard, when nobody is excluded, when people can accept the energy of the conflict and use it as a major opportunity for growth.”
