Remarks -
8.5 /10

College provides good facilities in every academic aspects. Being a Government College, the fee structure and all are feasible for every class of students. Negetive side is that medical Colleges never offers a fun academics as that of an arts College. It's not the negetive of the College, it's due to the seriousness and professionalism the course offers. Anyway the College Union, Students and everything makes the campus life awesome.

The only negative remarks are the acute staff shortage faced by the College. And the infrastructure of the college is undergoing a major facelift which makes the college in a transition stage. Positive remarks is that the college has a huge campus and a great staff really supportive seniors and a good canteen.
