Professor Arun Shukla, who serves as the regional coordinator for the college’s Swami Vivekananda Career and Guidance Centre, said the internship is of 50 marks and is compulsory for community engagement under the new NEP curriculum. “The first batch of 60 students out of 650 enrolled in the First Year of Arts, Commerce and Business Administration are undergoing an internship on cleanliness at Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC). The community engagement will enable students to understand ground realities like education, health, agriculture, livelihood of labourers etc. during field study.”
Speaking to a news agency, JMC Assistant Nodal Officer Shailja Sullere “The college decided that the students should take an internship on cleanliness, a health issue to promote. Students are being given basic communication training on how to interact with residents, and have been handed a format to gather details about cleanliness in the municipal wards.”

Mobile phone numbers of the municipal ward supervisors and health inspectors have been made available to the students and they have been asked to click and send photographs of garbage to civic officials so that it can be cleared.
