Expansion of library building , provision of more seating space in the reading room and addition of books and journals in the library.

Provision of adequate play grounds and gymnasium and improvement upon sports facilities.

Eviction of private houses that are in side the College premises be taken up as early as possible.

Encourage the staff to obtain M Phil/Ph.D degree and undertake research activities in various areas of socio economic development
