One of the reasons is the college is based in Pune with all the amenities available in a small radius at an effective cost. The second reason is the strength of the college is just 180 students compared to other colleges with an intake of more than 400 students so the competition is just between 180 students and the best part is the ROI as the fee is less and if you belong to a category then the fee is not more than 10500 and the hostel fee, if you have a good merit score, will be just 1500. The admission process was so subtle and easy thanks to the faculties and the staff they were so helpful and made it easy for all the students. All the steps were well organized from document verification to college fee submission everything went smooth. Before choosing this college I did a lot of research using various websites such a the official website of Pumba and then collegedunia.com which gave all the information related to the college with student reviews which was really helpful
