the week leading to 8th March 2020. The following activities have been undertaken:
- Self Defence Training for female students of ICFAI University.

The proposal was thereafter taken up with state-level authorities and necessary approval obtained from the police authorities. It is a matter of pride for the University that the formal training has begun on 2nd March 2020 by three officers including two female officers. Around 70 girl students are being benefitted by the training. There has been an overwhelming response from the female students for the initiative of the University.
