Looking to the proliferous sports activities a sports director/Physical Education Officer may be appointed separately for the college.

As the number of female students is more, NCC unit particularly for girls may be started in the college.

A separate library building may be developed and facilities may be augmented by increasing the number of books and enhancing the internet facility by having a separate hall with more monitors in the library.
