Blood Donation Drive

Conducted under NSS unit, such drives have garnered tremendous name and reputation in surrounding areas. Faculty, staff and student volunteers assist in this process from 9am till late in the afternoon.
The Donation Process:
Step 1: Registration
Our staff and volunteers will sign you in and go over basic eligibility and donation information. You will read information about donating blood and will be asked to show a valid form of ID.
Step 2: Mini-physical
You will answer some questions during a private and confidential interview about your health history and places you have travelled. We will check your temperature, pulse, blood pressure and haemoglobin level present in a sample of blood.
Step 3: The donation
The actual donation takes about 7-9 minutes, during which you will be lying down comfortably. The entire process is safe and sterile. The blood bank medical team is available if you have any questions.
Step 3: Refreshment
After donating, you are given a snack (Parle G) and something to drink (tea/coffee) in the refreshment area. You can leave the site after 10 minutes and continue with your normal daily activities.
Enjoy the feeling of accomplishment knowing that you have helped save lives!
Tree Plantation Drive
DYPIMS’s NSS unit, in association with a Non-Government Organization, Nisarga Raja, undertakes tree plantation drive to promote environment consciousness amongst the students. Till date 300 trees have been planted in and around the institute premises. Students regularly visit the site on Sundays to water the trees, remove weeds, and turn the soil. As a result, over 40% of the total available land is “green”.

( President, Rahul Smruti Prathishthan (Nachiket Balagram))
It gives me immense pleasure to write this. This is not as mere formality but with a deep sense of gratitude. Our association is since more than five years. It started with religious functions such as Satyanarayan Puja, Gajanan Maharaj Prakat Din, etc.With time several other activities were taken by the students, faculty, non-teaching staff and the Director also contributed in funding Nachiket Balagram in the field of education, culture, art, hobbies, games, etc. We also received donation in cash and kind from time-to-time study material, books, stationary, school bags, uniforms, etc. Your group enjoyed celebrating birthdays of our children.Here we gratefully mention donations in amounts given by Shri Bharat Chavan Patil (MD - Operations), Mrs. Richa Chavan Patil, (MD- Quality Assurance) and staff members. Consistent contribution is the essence of these activities due to which the association has turned into loving and affectionate relationship. This has enriched the minds and personality of our children.The selfless work put in by the visionary and humanitarian Founder, respected Dadasaheb (Dr. D. Y. Patil), teachers and staff, has enabled Dr. D. Y. Patil Institute of Management Studies to carve its own niche in the field of education. It has become a beacon (Deepstambh) for several educational institutes. The Institute under dynamic leadership of Executive Director is imparting not only world-class contemporary education to the youth, but also humanizing the education sector. Their association with the Orphanage - Nachiket Balgram is an example. I pray to the Almighty for strengthening this bond and abode of humanity.
