Out of 19 permanent teachers of the college, only one is Ph.D. degree holder, 5 are M.Phil degree and the others have post graduate degrees only. Although the teachers have the potential to do the research, it is not visible in most of the departments.

CRITERION --IV : INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES
The infrastructure and learning resources are good in the college. The campus is situated a bit away from the city and the location has provided good academic atmosphere to the learners. The College has its own building with sufficient number of class rooms to accommodate the existing courses. In all, there are 17 class rooms and these are fully utilized by the College. It is observed that during forenoon these class rooms are used by the college and during afternoon by the Junior College. Four class rooms have also been given for the use of Vinayaka Rao Patil Vidyalaya for conducting classes.
Although there is a library, it is not housed in a separate building or wing. However the college is eager to have a separate library to provide more facilities to the students.

CRITERION -- V : STUDENT SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
The admission policy of the college is transparent. The success rate is satisfactory and the dropout rate is about 10%. This has been attributed to the poor financial conditions of the parents especially in the drought hit areas.
The college brings out its prospectus annually and sufficient information is provided in the prospectus to make the parents known about the admission procedure, fee structure, scholarships and facilities available in the college.
The college is offering various scholarships to the deserving students and encouraging them to pursue the degree education. The faculty members are helping the students to know about the employment opportunities and how to go for it. However, the institution does not have a designated placement officer and employment cell.
The statistics of the College show that some of the students have secured employments and some others are on self employment with the help and guidance of the institution and teachers.
Although there is no well organised Alumni association, the College claims that the old student of the College have always come forward to help the institution. To justify this, the College has submitted a list of department-wise alumni who are holding important positions and their number comes to about 125.
The Institution may take steps to start the Alumni Association and efforts may be made to rope in as many old students as possible to get the maximum help to the college. The past students of the College can also be approached for the help and encouragement to the present students for their studies and employment.
The College is conducting various activities to improve the talents of the students. Various clubs such as nature club, debate club, outdoor and indoor games club, student magazine club etc are functioning to achieve this goal.
Although the institution is trying to help and support the students, there is need to go ahead with a greater strength and vigor to support the students in the coming years. This could be done with the help of donors, well-wishers and Alumni Association of the college.
