Vice Chancellor Message :

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself" I believe that rigors of the contemporary world require professionals not to end their quest for knowledge along with their stay in the campus. The dynamics of the fast-changing world urges the academicians to give the right impetus for making life-long learners out of students. In addition to creating fertile minds for professional and personal success we have committed ourselves to create responsible citizens who are the epitome of highest ethics and social conduct. Thus, the responsibility lies with us to nurture complete professionals, who can rightly be termed as 'Karam-Yogis'. I can proudly state that we are fully equipped and motivated to handle this challenge and surely be successful.
