1) Goal (Objectives): One of the main mission of the Institution is to help the poor students and ensure they are educated. Keeping this objective in mind the institution ensures that funds be arranged for as many deserving and needy students as possible.
2) The Context: A large number of students are coming from poor economic back ground, and hence are unable to even pay their fees. Some of these students are even forced to work in order to support their families for survival, and are also first generation learners. Since It is the mission of the Institution to bring these students from the quagmire of poverty, all efforts are made to ensure students are provided with all the possible support to make them graduates and make them worthy citizens , help the cause of nation building. Students are provided with maximum possible financial aid from within and outside sources and efforts are made to pass this benefit to large number of students.
3) The Practice:Students are given notice in advance about the avenues and various schemes which are available to them for getting financial aid. Application forms along with income proof certificates & copies of other relevant documents are received and processed along with a personal interview of the students, before distributing the aid to the needy students. In some cases where the aid is not sufficient efforts are made to arrange financial aid from outside sources also.
4) Evidence of Success: Institution has always aimed at providing maximum possible support to the students. Many students have benefited from the efforts taken by the institution for providing financial aid and support, Which helped the students in their progression in higher studies and prevented them from discontinuing their studies due to want of funds.
The table below shows the funds arranged from various sources by the Institution as financial aid for the needy students. Students in our college are from lower economic sections coming from lower middle class and slum areas tike Madanpura,Kamathipura, Govandi , Kurla , Mumbra, Mira road etc. Most of these students also engage in petty jobs like working in mobile shops, leather units etc. to support their families. In such a scenario spending amounts on education is also difficult. Hence the college has a scheme to support such students known as Students Aid Fund(SAF) operational since 1980. A proper procedure is followed wherein forms are distribution to students and collected along with supporting documents like electricity bill, ration card , income proof etc. Then interviews one conducted by the SAF committee of the short listed students to verify the genuineness and accuracy of the applicants. After which financial aid is provided to the students in the form of remission of their college fees either in part or full. Girl students are given preference under this scheme since it is very difficult for girls to continue their education coming from orthodox and lower economical background. The benefit of this scheme is passed on to students from Junior, Degree as well as Professional section. The statistical data for the same is as below:

5)Problems Encountered & Resources Required:Identifying those who are really in need of this facility due the family back ground becomes a huge challenge. Some of the students may be really very poor , so channelizing the resources to those who are desperately in need becomes a major problem as some times it may so happen that a slightly better off student may get the facility ahead of those who need it, but could not get the same. Arrangement of funds for distribution to large number of economically backward students is a major requirement in the endeavor of the college to help the needy students and make higher education available to all those who are interested.

Books which are distributed under the book bank scheme. More and more students have shown interest in availing the Facility and as such it has also contributed to the steady increase in the results of the college.

Under this scheme a pool of books is created for all standards of college. Sets of text books are created for each class according to the subjects. The students can use the books for the entire semester/ year and then return the books to the library, which are used for next batch of students (subject to no change in syllabus) The details of students benefitted and books distribution during past 5 years is as below :
