Later deposited my fees and I got admission.
I didn't live in the hostel but as I know there are different hostels for girls and boys and students have to share rooms. There are 3 students in a room. College provides beds and mattress, cupboards and study tables in the rooms. Food is fine, not homely but the quality is good. The hostel fee for a year is Rs56000. There are geysers in the washrooms and also a common room on each floor with television. Visitors can sit in the common room but are not allowed to enter the student's rooms.
