Social Service has been and will continue to be the first and foremost aim of the Karayogam and in this endeavour the differences of caste, creed, religion, language,etc. do not apply. Here in a nutshell are some of the services rendered by the Karayogam.
At the shortest notice the Karayogam is equipped to conduct marriage ceremonies in its auditoriums taking care of even the minutest details and as in any activity of the Karayogam our volunteers contribute their best to make the functions very successful. In addition to the marriage ceremonies, feasts and buffets/parties are also arranged as part of the marriages.
Needy and deserving students are given Endowements, tuition fees, books, etc. without any discrimination on religion, caste etc.
