Website Maintenance Underway
It is with a heavy heart that the college website management team is forced to announce that in the process of transferring to a new host and a brand new template, most of the invaluable data collected since August 2012 has been irretrievably lost. In view of the upcoming NAAC inspection early in 2016, we had hoped to improve our website with larger bandwidth and provide greater and more helpful web content for all concerned, particularly our student community. But that was not to be. We are now trying to patch up as much as possible the gaping damage left by the loss of data, and we request visitors and viewers to bear with us as maintenance continues at a very slow pace.
