Unnat Bharat Abhiyan

SJB Institute of Technology started Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) activities from academic year 2018-19. The program was formally launched by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).

UBA is inspired by the vision of transformational change in rural development processes by leveraging knowledge institutions to help build the architecture of an Inclusive India. 

SJB Institute of Technology in line with the vision has organized various activities by adopting 5 villages; Chikkasulikere, Gungarahalli, Thimmasandra, Doddasulikere, Lakshmipura.
