Unnat Bharat Abhiyaan (UBA) is a flagship program of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). It aims to link the Higher Education Institutions with a set of at least (5) villages, so that these institutions can contribute to the economic and social betterment of these village communities using their knowledge base.

The UBA team of college has visited all five villages for survey and have identified the specific problems faced by the villages such as unavailability of safe drinking water for school students, unavailability of school furniture, lack of computer knowledge and computers, insufficient and unhygienic toilets and non-awareness of government schemes.
