It is strongly recommended that the principal and the teachers be kept for at least a term of five years since it is an autonomous college for the good and progress of the institution.

*The college is encouraged to take up Tribal and Women Studies.

*Research Centres could be established for the various P.G. Departments of the College

*There is the real difficulty to get the approval of the parent University for new courses and research programmes. The autonomous college may be given the complete freedom to design its courses without the interference of the university.

*The suggestion of the students to provide transportation when they go together to the University for inter-university youth festival & other activities. like NSS etc.

*It is suggested to start law degree (LL.B.) programmes.

*More job-oriented and skill-based courses could be introduced as soon as possible to make the empowerment process more effective.

*The faculty members are overburdened with teaching (24 periods a week). It is suggested to have guest faculty members in the departments especially in the one-member department of Sanskrit.

*It is painful to note that the non-teaching staff are not woman getting the benefits of the fifth pay commission. Measures could be taken with the Govt. to rectify this anamoly in the campus.

*The post of registrar could be established to lessen the burden of administration on faculty members who will have more time to pursue their academic concerns.

*The situation of staffing in the library deserves immediate attention. There are only five staff members who manage the entire work. It is surprising to note that there is no need of passing set / net exam to occupy the post of librarian in M.P.

The college could think of following the multi-choice credit based system and also the OGP (Overall Grade Performance Certificate) which will be beneficial to students to reflect their academic as well as co-curricular performance in the college.
