The infrastructure of the hostel is good, but its food services are the worst.

Placements: There are no placements in the agriculture course. It depends on students to crack the entrance exam. Yet, we can learn the quality to be acquired to appear for a placement interview here. They are training us.

Infrastructure: Wi-Fi is not up to the mark. Labs, classrooms and the library are average with their infrastructure, but they are to be modernised. Accommodation in the hostel is average. The food available in the mess is indigestible. There is no sort of prime sports orientation.
