The college became an autonomous institution in 2009. The team will stay for two days and inspect libraries, laboratories, drinking water and toilet facilities, among others in the college.

They will also look into the academic development of the college in last five years.
The team, to be headed by headed by Prof A K Singh of Indira Gandhi Open University, will also interact with teachers, non-teaching staff, students and guardians before preparing a quality report, which will be crucial for the college that is hoping for an extension.
"We have informed the students about the team's visit and directed them to answer every question honestly. We have also informed the parents who are happy to be part of the inspection," said the principal.
"I am happy that the UGC team is coming here to inspect. Our college is really good but if the team visits then they might give more suggestions to our faculty for improvement" said a student of the college.
The college offers honours and general courses in 22 subjects and masters in 10 subjects. It also offers vocational courses like computer applications, information technology, Bachelors of Education and Master of Law are also offered at the college.
