NAAC Accredited at B++ Grade (2.78 Scale) College

History & Location

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection

( Song Offerings, Rabindranath Tagore)
