General Secretary Speaks: Abbas Ali Bohra

Abbas Ali Bohra
The working of the GSHA and the hostel affairs council is very different from various councils and is highly dependent on the administration for execution. The primary job of the council is the job of being a student representative and act as a link of communication amongst between student and the administration.

The main focus was to do the above and we can see that by the increase in the number of meetings with the student representatives, better communication channels, and approachability through initiatives like open houses.

There were successful attempts made for the first time to involve the administration directly in hostel issues, through Hostel Maintenance Committee. The entire admission and allocation process was also made much smoother. Very high involvement in TumTum issues with proposal to restructure the SWS Society under consideration.

The above are examples of the various things already done to consolidate the base of Hostel Affairs, along with pushing for the initiatives promised earlier, several of them are already completed, and I am hopeful to be able to complete the rest in the remaining tenure.

Do come to the GBM starting 9:30 PM on 2nd Nov. at OAT, SAC. Your views are important to us.
