College has taken up an Organic Manure production program wherein the food waste from canteen and horticulture waste from College surrounding has now been converted to Organic manure. The program has been initiated from 15 August 2014, and by now the college has converted approximately 2 ½ ton of biodegradable waste and has reaped around 200 kg of wet organic manure. The dry weight accounting up to 120 kg organic manure amounting to Rs. 2500/-.Through this initiative the college has saved this huge quantity of waste from going to dumping ground. Hence it has saved Natural resource and National wealth. The same project has been replicated at Kawthewadi, the adopted village at Karjat, Maharashtra.
