The scheme is operated by the Human resource department in affiliation with a few elected members who belong to the same group. The welfare has been making concerted efforts to provide welfare programmes to the staffs and its main purpose is to cater for social and economic needs of the staffs. The welfare has rule and regulations which governs it’s running and moreover a constitution which spells outs the do’s and don’ts for every member before and after committing him/herself to the welfare.
