    As i am already graduated from This college, i can tell that if college can manage a little easier way of taking admission. Enquiry problem is there at time of admission. Other than after admission everything you will find positive about this college.

    Admission -

    Merit was based on the marks i got in 12th board. My marks was 54 and college was taking admission below 50. Then one have to visit college or any study centre opened in any other state, then and there you will get a form, you have to fill it and submit it right there. That's it.
