               The Salient Feature of the IITD Staff Welfare Scheme

Many people, at one time or another, are hard pressed for money and need financial assistance to
meet their immediate and compelling needs. Quite often these needs arise rather unexpectedly. The
rising cost of living has put a strain on the resources of the low and middle income salaries groups
so that it becomes difficult for them to meet their obligations and commitments.

In order to provide financial assistance to meet immediate needs, the IIT Delhi established a staff
welfare scheme in 1975 which is known as "IITD Staff Welfare Scheme".

The salient feature of the IITD Staff Welfare are given below:

1.   Any permanent employee of the Institute can become member of the scheme by subscribing
     Rs.30/- every month through salary bill.

2.   Interest will be given on the accumulation of the monthly subscription, when the amount
     exceeds Rs.1000/-.

3.   The accumulated monthly subscription will be refunded, as and when member leaves the

4.   Members will be given Loan upto Rs.25000/- and the interest will be charged @6% per annum.

5.   Ex-gratia grant of Rs.2500/- will be given to the family of the deceased member.

6.   When a member dies, a sum of Rs.20/- will be deducted from the salary of each member on the
     roll and the accumulated amount will be given as a help to the family of the deceased member.

All permanent staff members (Academic and Non-Academic) of the Institute are eligible for
membership and only those staff members who apply for membership and subscribe to the funds of
the Scheme shall be considered as member.

All the staff members are requested to become a member of the scheme and also encourage other
colleagues to become available member of the scheme. A copy of the membership form is enclosed.
Forms are also kept in the reception counter as well as in the Institute's Website.

  Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
  Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave
  every other idea alone. This is the way to success. . . . If we really want to be blessed,
  and make others blessed, we must go deeper.                          –– Swami Vivekananda
