On the occasion, SKK’s colorful Brochure was also released.

The President SKK, K B Jandial & General Secretary J.K. Vaid apprised the AGP about the annual report of the year 2022-23 and various initiatives taken by the Society. Arrangements have been made for the monthly Health-Check of the Divyang since November 2022. A group of students are taken to the Gandhinagar Hospital on a weekly basis for a hearing test and some of them have been given hearing aids.
On behalf of the SKK fraternity, Jandial expressed profound gratitude to the Lt. Governor Shri Manoj Sinha for special grant-in-aid of Rs. Five lakhs annually for three years from Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Trust for the promotion and welfare of these Divyang. Members joined the President SKK in conveying gratefulness to Lt.

The Alumni are motivated to go for higher education and their semester fee is reimbursed out of a separate fund created with donations of members. Four divyangs have been benefited under this initiative. One alumnus has done MCA, two have done BCA & fourth one Diploma in sign language.
The AGM discussed measures to explore possibilities for absorption of the passed out Divyang in jobs or self-employed start-ups by arranging training for them in skills that have potential in the market.
