The Thiruvananthapuram DC features a bowling alley, tennis courts, volleyball courts, a badminton court, a basketball court, a football ground, a gymnasium and two food courts offering a wide variety to the employees.

Committed to reducing its environmental footprint, the Thiruvananthapuram DC has multiple green initiatives. The sprawling campus has green cover and rain water ponds to enhance bio diversity. The campus is also equipped with a biogas plant and a membrane bio reactor (MBR) sewage treatment plant which processes organic waste.

Internal CSR groups within Thiruvananthapuram DC like GrassRoutes, Sanjeevani and Raksha have been collaborating with employees and playing a pivotal role in improving the lives of marginalized groups in Thiruvananthapuram and addressing larger social causes like anti-drugs awareness campaign for students.

To acknowledge the contribution of the employees and the growth of the DC for 15 years, it organized this month long celebration for employees, their families and the society at large.
