SIAM believed that by participating in tree plantation will add to maintaining the environment and keeping it clean. Due to its year to year voluntary schemes; SIAM has made it obligatory for the pharmacy students as part of their extra-curriculum activities who by their efforts and dedication they will cultivate the sense of social responsibility.
