In a concerted effort to foster rural development and bridge the urban-rural divide, SRM University recently hosted a two-day census survey as part of the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan initiative. This nationwide campaign aims to empower rural communities through various developmental interventions and knowledge exchange programs.

The data collected during this comprehensive exercise will serve as a crucial foundation for designing tailored interventions and sustainable development projects aimed at uplifting rural communities. Speaking about the significance of the initiative, Department of Teachers' education and research emphasized the university's commitment to societal welfare and its role as a catalyst for positive change. The Unnat Bharat Abhiyan aligns perfectly with our institution's ethos of serving the community and fostering inclusive growth.
