A Short Review of the U.G.C. Affairs at Institution
The Grants from the U.G.C. have been a phenomenal resource for the growht of this institution over the different plan periods.
There came a major breakthrough in the year 2003 when the institution also bagged the status of an autonomous college. With concurrence of the State Government, the U.G.C. bestowed upon the college autonomy for a period of five years that was further extended after a thorough review of the college by a high level peer team appointed by U.G.C.
On the report submitted by the peer team the college has been permitted to run as an autonomous institution till 2014.
Meanwhile the college also went through the process of accreditation by NAAC Bangalore and it was "B" Grade with a GPA 2.86.
The college has also sought assistance from the U.G.C. under its scheme know as 'CPE (Colleges with Potential for Excellence) and we hope the it will be soon granted the desired status since it has been already recognized as a college of excellence by the state government long ago.
The college has received U.G.C. Assistance of Rs. 10411000/- for the XI Plan period (2007-2012).
