The police informed me that they had informed the company that ran the email service. They have reinstated my account and have informed me about the kind of precautions that I should take, she said.

*Library needs to be updated and expanded. More new books and periodicals are required to be added. Library needs to be computerized at the earliest. Reprographic facility may be provided in the library.
*Research Activities of the faculty members, apart from projects, may be strengthened to enhance the prestige of the institution. Some seed money needs to be provided by the College to faculty members for research proposals and publications.
*More linkages with national and international research institutions may help to enhance the research base. Industrial linkage is also necessary to help the students.
*Use of more modern teaching aids in the class-room and learner-centred teaching methods may be thought of for effective teaching-learning.
The institution may also involve the alumni for its growth and development requesting them to implement certain specific projects.
Parent Teacher Association (PTA) needs to be strengthened.
Trees in the campus may be labeled with botanical names.
