The GIK Institute, keeping in mind the menace caused across the country by the ubiquitous plastic shopping bag, has decided to ban its use on campus. The ban took effect from 15 April, 2016. All the retail outlets on campus, including private, have been instructed to comply. Happily, the outlets have complied, by arranging bags made of biodegradable material, for which the Institute would like to express its appreciation.
The Rector thanked the student community and all the employees for their cooperation with GIK in this small step taken by the Institute to contribute to the preservation of the environment.
