An all round development champions for life.

Remarks -

The best part is in-spite of being such tough course we have a very chilled out culture. We never miss out on fun. It would be 2 best years of one life. The only bad thing thing I can think of is its highly military styled run college were a lot of emphasis is given on discipline, timings, grooming etc. But we fauji kids are use to it.

As my personal opinion goes, I find the college above average in all the aspects, be it academics, faculty, campus, food, accommodation, placements and extra-curricular activities. There is always a healthy environment as all the students stay together as a big family and our bonds lasts a lifetime.
