Emerging and globalized knowledge economy in India has created new opportunities to young generations. The former President of India late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam coined a term “Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas” (PURA), which is now essence of the India’s inclusive growth strategies and as a building block for inclusive knowledge societies in India.

PURA supplements several social missions such as ‘Information for All’, ‘Education for All’, ‘Health for All’, ‘Every Village a Library / Knowledge Centre’, ‘No School without a Library’. In furtherance of the legacy of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Shivalik College of Engineering has developed a Learning Resource Centre in its campus and has named it “ Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Learning Resource Centre”, a befitting tribute to Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Bharat Ratna, the greatest human being of our time.

Sh. Harish Rawat inaugurated the library and was highly impressed by the institution’s efforts to bring about the necessary changes in the field of education.
