    College Infrastructure

    College living space areas and classrooms are clean. But the college doesn't provide the facilities like laboratries, libraries, sports centres and hostels. Wifi, and smart board are very far to think of it.

    Good

    College Infrastructure

    All facilities are provided to a certain extent. Campus infrastructure is ok. Classrooms are old. The living area is not that hygienic. Management should take special care in cleanliness, hygiene and sanitation.
