In the year 1990, Scouting started in India. The first Guide Company in India was started in Jabalpur, Central India in 1911. The objective of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society. Scout and Guide units are separate though they have some coeducational activities such as Rallies, Jamborees, and conferences. Not just fit people but handicapped boys and girls also take part in the Scouting program.

In 2006 The Scout & Guide Chapter was started in Vidya Knowledge Park as a mandatory activity for B.Ed. Students which comprises of 5 days hike camp culminating with an educational excursion.  The objective of the Scout & Guide Program is to make resourceful student teachers who are awarded badges and certificates at the successful completion of the programs, and these certificates give special weight to their resumes.
