It would like to commend the college for some of the positive features in its approach in promoting higher education. At the same time, the peer team would point out some of the issues of concern for the consideration of the college.

*At the time of inception in 1984, the college was run in a rented accommodation. Shifted to its own building in 1994-95. Today it has two campuses having three multi-storeyed buildings in one campus and two multi-storeyed buildings in other campus. The college has been continuously augmenting its physical and infrastructural facilities.
*In the year 2005, the college was bestowed with autonomous status.

*In the year 2006, it was recognised by UGC as a college having potential for excellence.

*The college has gone for ISO Certification and was awarded with ISO 9001 Certificate.

*The college has achieved its specific goals by designing need based, employment oriented, socially relevant courses.

*The aided academic programmes are strengthened through self financing courses, add on courses and certificate courses.

*Participation of several faculty members in international and national seminars is appreciable.

*Value based education is promoted to induce moral, ethical and social values among students.

*The college organises a variety of outreach programmes through its wings of NCC and NSS.

*There is good interpersonal relationship among the Principal, Faculty, Students and Non-teaching staff.

*All office functions like admissions, accounts and examinations have been computerised.

*In autonomous streams results are published within 30 days from the last examination.

*The Principal of the college is a recognised research supervisor and has a major research project funded by UGC and 5 Research Scholars are actively engaged in Research under his guidance.

*The college has two e-libraries with 20 computers and Internet facility. The college has access the DELNET.

*The college offers bridge courses and remedial coaching for the weaker students.

*Accounts are properly maintained and duly audited.

*The college provides insurance cover for all staff and students and free education to the children of the employees.

With a view to further improving the academic growth of the college, the peer team would like to suggest the following for its consideration.

*The UGC has conferred autonomous status for the college. But effectively autonomy is available only for the UG programmes. It is desirable that the parent university considers favourably in extending the autonomy to the P.G programmes offered by the college as envisaged by UGC.

*The college may prepare a 5 year strategic perspective plan to chalk out the road map and the action plans for the further development of the college.

*An extensive academic audit may be instituted.

*It is nearly 2 years since the college became Autonomous. The college may think of self assessment of the progress made by the college during the last 2 year under the autonomous scheme. This gives them they feedback as to weather the college realized the full potential of the academic freedom given to them for designing more relevant curricula, new methods of teaching learning process and innovative methods of evaluation. This exercise will also help the college to apply a mid-course correction, if needed.

*More faculty members may be encouraged to take up research work and publish their research output.

*Except one major research project of the Principal, no other research projects appear to have been in operation. The research committee may encourage the faculty members to apply for research projects funded by different funding agencies.

*Computerisation of the Library may be completed on top priority.

*More books of recent publications may be added to the library.

*Usage of books of the library may be insisted upon.

*Now that many post-graduate programmes have been started, more research journals may be purchased.

*Every department may devise its outreach activity related to its subject.

*The college may take upon the responsibility of organising more state / national seminar every year.

*While the systematic conduct of tests as prescribed is appreciated more innovative testing modalities may be adopted to promote the progression to higher education and employment of the students.

*Students seminar activity and field visits may be made more extensive and purposive.

*The Alumni association needs to be registered and strengthened and concrete programmes need to be chalked out.

*Students feed back on their campus experience may be discussed in appropriate forum and utilised.

The peer teem is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution to help it sustain and promote quality. It places on record its appreciation of the cooperation extended by the dynamic Principal, Management, Staff, Students, parents, Alumni and the Public who have been striving to promote quality education. The peer team wishes the institution the best in its endeavour to promote higher education.
