Ritu Yadav of B.Com (Pass), the Vice-President, has also formerly served in the union as a Proctor in her first year. There was a huge margin of victory for the President, Komal. Prasansha, a second year student, was tagged with the post of the General Secretary; who defeated her opponent by 300 votes. Vandaya from 1st year is the new Treasurer for Kamala Nehru College, who grabbed the maximum margin of victory of 400 votes. The Proctor Team for first, second and third years is headed by Monika, Aayushi Jain and Nidhi Sharma respectively.

Kamala Nehru College’s Union Elections were delayed by a few weeks due to the NAAC visit to college earlier last month. The team is currently preparing for upcoming Diwali celebrations in college.
