The primary function of the AC LC shall be to advise the AC and the Director on policy matters pertaining the Central Library of the Institute.
Any decision of the AC affects the students, favorably or unfavorably. It is, therefore, very important that the student representatives participate in the decision making process itself. The participation of students brings in the very important 'students perception' and the information that they have on various issues, while the decision is being taken. Moreover, student participation introduces transparency in the decision making process. Apart from arriving at better decisions with student inputs, it also provides the students with an opportunity to express themselves more lucidly and fearlessly, which is an important part of education.
In order to ensure that the participation of students in the decision making process is meaningful, it is very important that the student representatives are chosen with utmost care. A student representative on any committee must have a 'good academic standing' so that more meaningful decisions can be taken. Thus, a student representative on any committee must have a CPI better than 7.5 and must not have obtained F grade in any course. Further, a student cannot be nominated on any Committee of the Institute, if the student was involved in violation of the CCOS at any time. Moreover, any student can not be a student representative on two or more committees.
