Sour and sweet experience.
Placements: Usually students are not placed in my course but the principal promised for the placement of 50-60 students of B.A. this year. Principal unannounced the that salary will of 27000+. It is not clear about companies. 30-45 percent students are expected to get recruited this year. Clerical job I guess.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure for B.A. students is worse until first year after that condition improves as the building changes for second year students. Hostel also is not that good but for girls it is good. Girl students have good facility of college hostel ;).
Faculty: Faculty I would say is good enough for students of any stream. Almost all professors have passed UGC NET and more than half have a doctorate digree. Otherwise faculty also helps you if you have any type of problem. Or you can talk to principal sir too.
Other: Crowd is also good.
