Soft Skills are very essential now-a-days. It is becoming the demand of corporate sector that whoever they hire for job position, he must have some basic soft skills such as Inter Communication skill, Intra Communication skill, Teamwork, Leadership skill, Adaptability skill and so on. But it is the fact that there is less awareness among rural students about these soft skills and which becomes the main reason that they get set back most of the time when they appear for campus drives. They meet difficulties to acquire these soft skills because of lack of trainings and guidance found especially in rural engineering colleges of India. Therefore, it can be a big task and challenge to the rural engineering students to get into the required processes of skill acquisition and all with the lack of communicative environment in both places school or colleges and home as well. It becomes really barrier to students when time comes to them to present something in front of an audience, while delivering seminar to other people or interacting with professors or colleagues or other professionals at all levels that becomes the main cause to produce inferiority complex about acquisition of soft skills. Because of such terrific situations, they meet failure in getting recruited in campus selection or meet failure in facing an interview or any other activities which are conducted to test their soft skills. Such poor competent students easily meet failure in achieving the higher expectations of corporate world afterwards. Therefore, in order to resolve such issues of students who belong to rural sector-based engineering colleges, there is a need to produce some platforms like Soft Skill Club under which some speaking-based activities, group activities, presentations can be conducted to improve their communicative competence, stage daring, body language and personality traits as well. Therefore, this research paper highlights the importance of Soft Skill Club to the First Year of Engineering but rural students in India.
