The community development centre SRIJAN, an offspring of the college, started on 9th July 2003 with the goal of improving the poverty-stricken conditions of the children living in the nearby slum. In April 2005, it was registered as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) under the Societies Registration Act.

It started its journey as a weekend school for the neighbouring slum children, with the college students, serving as instructors. The beneficiaries are cared for throughout the year by active services and funds generated from students, teachers and patrons.
