The college provides very good infrastructure and facilities for students.

Placements: Placements are nearly average. Many sectors like Quick Service Restaurant, retails and hotel companies come here for hiring students from entry-level to management trainee level jobs. Quality of placements is decreasing because of the decrease in the quality of students coming into this college.

Infrastructure: I would rate 5 stars for this college according to its facilities. Though the college is a central government institute, facilities provided are at par level with any other big reputed private colleges.
