The Intellectual property rights (IPR) refers to the legal rights given to the inventor or creator to protect his invention or creation for a certain period of time. Indian government has revised the National IPR policy in May 2016. The Policy recognizes to foster creative and innovative energies that flow in India, and to channelize these energies towards a better and brighter future ahead. The National IPR Policy is a vision document that encompasses and brings to a single platform all IPRs. It views IPRs holistically, taking into account all inter-linkages and thus aims to create and exploit synergies between all forms of intellectual property (IP), concerned statutes and agencies. It sets in place an institutional mechanism for implementation, monitoring and review. It aims to incorporate and adapt global best practices to the Indian scenario. In this direction Sanjo College initiated the formation of IPR Cell to encourage research and provide conducive environment to researchers.

Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) help in protecting and commercializing the inventions in services of the college. IPR includes patents, trademarks, copy rights, trade secrets and other species such as computer software or printed material, any new and useful process, machine, composition of matter, life form, article of manufacture, software, copyrighted work, such things as new or improved devices, circuits, chemical compounds, drugs, genetically engineered biological organisms, data sets, software, musical processes, or unique and innovative uses of existing inventions. The Intellectual Property Right Cell is established in the college to ensure a speedy and accurate identification and protection of innovations arising out of the research work carried out by the students and alumni of the college. It is a necessary procedure in an educational institution to encourage creativity, research and provide a conducive environment.

The duties of the Anti Narcotic cell include organizing awareness programmes in the college and hostels with the help of government authorized agencies/ organizations. Educating the students about the ill-effects of drugs and alcohol, encouraging peer policing among students against the use of drugs and reporting of any noticed use of drugs by the students to the students affairs committee are also the duties of the anti-drugs cell.
