Indore :  Students of Shri Govindram Seksaria Institute of Technology and Science (SGSITS), a leading engineering college of the state, are not merely bookworms. They are socially active and environment-friendly too. A sizeable number of students of this college go to their campus riding bicycles, making their small bit to promote cycling for a cleaner environment.  Many students of SGSITS avoid using motorised vehicles until it is necessary. They use bicycles to commute in the city and on the campus. In this way, they contribute to green policy of the institute and keep themselves healthily and fit. “Cycling is a good exercise to keep oneself fit. I use bicycle to go to the college and encourages my classmates to follow the suit,” said Arvind Singh Bhadoriya, a BE student.

A faculty member of SGSITS, Prof MPS Chawla said that about 600 students come to the institute riding bicycles. “Almost everyone of them have motorized vehicles but they opt for bicycle to promote the institute’s green policy which is for making campus ‘no vehicle zone’ in a phase-wise manner,” he said. The college has around 4500 students and most of them either use bicycle or public transport to reach the campus. “Only those students who live far from the college comes to the institute using motorised vehicles,” said BK Tiwari of SGSITS.  Tiwari is also a warden of hostels of the institute. He said that around 100 hostellers use bicycles to commute on the campus. “They are encouraged to do so time to time. In past two years, we have managed to double the number of students using bicycles,” he said. – Courtesy
