Ours is the only senior college in the village and its surrounding area. Most of the students taking admissions in the college are local and belong to the nearby villages.
The admission process is carried out as per government rules. Enough care is taken that specific earmarked seats of each category are filled up. The statutory committees of the college are well balanced with the representation of each category.
