It is a pretty good college and I would recommend it to everyone.

Placements: Not many students got placed from college. As we know that only a few students get admission here. I paid Rs. 15,000 as it's government college. Over 90% of students got internships from college. Mostly management companies like FDC, Alchemy, IPCA, etc., visit the campus for recruitment.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is normal. The architecture here is the most famous campus in India. Facilities provided are pretty normal because it is a government college so you can't expect more from it.

The best place for students to pursue research studies.

Placements: The placements were not the primary concern for many students in the college. Most of the students were interested in higher studies, but the trend is slightly changing. Many students are interested in working. Our department has bad placements. A few companies offered low salaries, so the students who got selected rejected the offers. The faculty members provide very little help, and the rest has to be done by the students.
