Since the college is recognised by the UGC recently, i.e., May 2003, covering under the provisions of 2f and 12B, it may start receiving grants from the UGC and the State government for augmenting its infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth. The college maintains its infrastructure through the funds received from its mother institution.

Library and Reading room facilities are available from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm. And night library is also available for 8.00 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. Various outside organisations avail the college facilities to hold the cultural programmes, examinations, meetings, election booth, karate classes, etc. During 1993 earthquake in Killari, the college building was used as a transit shelter for affected persons for care and treatment, at the time many NGOs and GOs arranged for relief programmes by utilising the college building. The police and the military people also use the college building whenever needed.

The college has not developed any mechanism to monitor the progression of students to employment and/or further studies. However, the rough estimates indicate that the alumni are holding some prominent positions in the various fields like education, co-operation, science, military, publicity, journalism, social service, business and government service.
