Anti-ragging measures 
The motto of the Institute is zero tolerance to ragging. To achieve this, documents and posters intended to sensitize the students and their parents on the highly immoral side of ragging, have been prepared. A structured mechanism has been put into place to monitor ragging related issues and mete out the most stringent punishment to the wrong doers and enforce the anti-ragging regulations in letter and spirit. 

Counseling service
A professional counseling service has been set in place in order to ensure that the students receive help when they face social/emotional issues that require professional approach. Services of two resident counselors are available to students all the time. Apart from this, online counseling services of  a  Bangalore based company ‘YourDost’ is also made available to students.

Life skill classes 
Students are given a course in life skills to cope with stress, improve communication skills and manage conflicting objectives. This course, conducted by experts, provides the students with a platform to discover new friends and develop new bonding. It makes the students come out of their shell and easily mix with the new faces. They are also taught the art of forming well-knit close teams to whom they can lean when in need, without hesitation. The course is mainly aimed at developing inter-personal relationships, building confidence, and making them comfortable while facing the public, interview boards and so on.


Health Care

Our students are provided with comprehensive medical coverage through a nominal yearly subscription. An institute clinic is set up to cater to the medical needs of our students, staff, and faculty members. Additionally, IIT Palakkad has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with several esteemed healthcare providers, including Athani Hospital, Malabar Hospital, Ahalia Diabetes Hospital, and Thangam Hospital, to offer cashless medical services. Students also have the option to seek treatment as outpatients at hospitals affiliated with the Ahalia Foundation.
