Vijaya Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences for Women is committed to create Environment Consciousness in the state.

Under the programme various Green Initiatives are carried out by the college:

Waste management

Rain water Harvesting

Green Practices


The college promotes the motto “REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE” dropping the need to dispose of waste as much as possible, and ensures proper disposal of whatever waste is generated by following a specified procedure for doing so. This makes the campus look clean and booming. Following are the methods adopted for waste management:

Solid Waste Management:

There are separate dustbins arranged to collect bio-degradable and non-biodegradable waste which are placed at various locations on campus, especially near the laboratories.

The dustbins are labelled with proper instructions to clearly distinguish the waste and disposal of the same.

A larger quantity of biodegradable waste is allowed to degrade or decompose by dumping it into the pits on campus.

Biological waste from the Microbiology and Pharmacology department consisting of microorganisms and animals are properly disposed of by handing it over to the local Panchayat workers.

Usage of plastic is discouraged within the College premises, making it a NO PLASTIC ZONE, and a special bin is arranged for its collection to send it for recycling.

Littering of waste is prohibited in the campus.

Liquid Waste Management: 

Usage of hazardous liquid chemicals which generate harmful fumes is avoided.

The other waste liquids, either from laboratories or wash basins are disposed through a well constructed drainage system leading to the closed collection tanks.

 E-Waste Management

The college is very specific about disposing its e waste.

The college collects the e-waste in a bin which is specially arranged and sends it to the parent institution SRKIT along with the other worn out computers or other electronic equipment.

 Efforts for Carbon neutrality

The institution has medicinal garden consisting of around 150 plants. It was established to cultivate and maintain medicinal plants for educational and research purpose. The prime objective is to maintain a conservatory of the most common and important species of medicinal and aromatic plants which have significance in day-to-day primary health care. The medicinal plants and trees in the campus are well maintained by a full time gardener.

There is a prohibition of burning plastic in the campus, which helps in achieving Carbon Neutrality.

Bio-hazardous Waste Management

The faculty members and lab assistants guide and monitor the students in the careful use and handling of chemicals in various laboratories. Fuming chambers are provided in the laboratories for the proper disposal of hazardous fumes.


Rain Water Harvesting

As the college is located in a hot climatic zone, we realize the importance of conservation and best utilization of water resources. The college maintains and generates water resources.  The college has a few bore wells to meet the general needs of the institution.

The water from the roof tops along with the rain water is collected through a well connected pipe network delivery system. This arrangement is helpful in collecting water, which is then collected into an underground tank, specially constructed for this purpose. There are two such tanks with a large capacity. 

The water thus collected is then used for gardening. In the hot summer season, when water scarcity is more, the rain water thus collected and stored in the underground tank, is used for the maintenance of the green cover in the campus.


Green Practices

Public Transport/ Bus facility 

The college provides bus facility to all its students and staff.

No vehicle is allowed into the campus, making the campus pollution free. The vehicles are parked outside the gate of the campus.

The local students are encouraged to come by bicycle to college. All the college buses and vehicles are used by the college members do have PUC certification, which is renewed regularly.

Plastic Free Campus

College discourages the use of plastic.

Display Boards displaying USE OF PLASTIC IS RESTRICTED are placed in different locations of the college.

Hazards of use of plastic are explained to students from time to time by organizing Seminars to create Plastic Free Zone.

Paperless Office

The college uses the latest technology to maintain the campus a paperless one.

Most of the official communication like notices for various meetings of staff as well as students, holiday notices, program communication, greetings on different occasions...etc is done through the bulk sms facility, emails and other social media.

For the purpose of sending invitations, participation news, views.... etc (for conferences, interviews, campus interviews, seminars, workshops...etc) emails, sms and social media are preferred.

Unless required paper print outs are not taken and most of the work is done through soft copies on computers.

Green Landscaping With Trees and Plants

The institute is a green campus with beautiful trees planted all over the campus area.

Most of the corridors of the college are lined up with potted plants.

College has a separate herbal garden in the campus.

Tree plantation is taken up annually in the college premises and nearby villages under NSS activity to promote green practices and saving of trees.

Tree guards are provided for the small plants.

Pedestrian Friendly Roads

College campus is well connected through well-built roads on either side to the National Highway number 16.

The path ways inside the college are well built to make them available for walking, as no vehicles are allowed inside the campus.

Many of the non teaching staff and a few students in and around the location daily walk down to college.

Additional initiatives for contribution to conservation:

The Principal and the staff of the college contributed greatly for planting of trees under Vanam-Manam Programme and for medicinal plant nursery development, under the initiative of the Forest Department of Government of Andhra Pradesh.
