Message from the Principal
Education is a powerful device in shaping the destiny of a nation by bringing desired changes in socio-cultural life. Swami Vivekananda, a great thinker and great reformer of India defined education as the manifestation of the perfection already in man. Value-based education gives meaning and strength to an individual’s very existence. Higher education is critical for developing a modern economy. Prof. Strumilin opines that, higher education causes an increase of 300 per cent in labour productivity. Education imparted at the college level enable students to acquire the basic intellectual paraphernalia, thinking ability and skills needed for employment. The concept of Evening College came into existence during 1970s owing to the demand from employed people thronging at the portals of higher education.
