The motto behind IEEE-R10 SAC INDIA is to enhance and encourage communication between student branches of a section and between Sections. This is achieved by bringing student branches to work together, by promoting effective networking between student branches. This will lead to increase in IEEE activities, reactivation of sick student branches, formation of new branches, effective transfer of responsibilities to new branch officers thus increasing the value of IEEE student membership and thereby sustain student members in IEEE.
