On March 2, 2021, NIIT University conducted elections to elect the Captain and the Vice-Captain, who will convey and address the various problems faced by students. Every year the Student Advisory Council aka SAC, which consists of student club coordinators and academic performers, votes for the best candidate in the Captain and Vice-Captain categories. The elections at NU make sure that girl representation is done at the highest level and that one of either Captain or Vice-Captain is necessarily a girl.
This year we had Jitender Kali Reddy (B. Tech Batch 2018-22), Sneh Kumar Mishra (iMBA, Batch 2018-22), and Arjun Bakshi (B. Tech Batch 2018-22) contesting for the University Captain position while Kashish Chhotaria (B. Tech Batch 2018-22), Somya Gupta (B. Tech Batch 2018-22), and Pratibha Kumari (iMBA Batch 2018-22) contested for the Vice-Captain Position. The voting was conducted online through Google Forms, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The results were concluded on the same day giving some relief to the contenders experiencing the suspense and adrenaline rush. Arjun Bakshi (B. Tech CSE, Batch 2018-22) and Somya Gupta (B. Tech Biotechnology, Batch 2018-22) were voted as Captain and Vice-Captain respectively.
