  • We consider the concept of providing financial support as our distinctive area of priority among various aspects of the performance of the college in view of the fact that it has been quite a success in facilitatinglakhs of students to study, to secure a degree and to become independent in their life. It is being done not only out of philanthropic gesture but also out of participationtowards the society and commitment towards educational system. The management also recognises meritorious students and helps them complete their education and also provides opportunities for placement. On the whole, the institution focuses as much as possible on providing a helping hand to those who are interested in studying but could not do so due to financial constraints and therefore, it is evident that the scholarships provided by the management empower the students for growing better and helps them to have sustenance in their achievements in the professional and personal life.
