For want of rooms, college conducts classes under tree

The college has 850 students, but only three classrooms. Classes are conducted in shifts due to the space crunch. While the BCom and BBM classes are conducted between 10 am and 1 pm, BA classes are taken from 1 pm to 4 pm.

The classes are also conducted under trees. Sitting in the open, with hardly any shade from the trees, students are stressed out.

The college has been facing lack of adequate class rooms for the past 25 years. Established in 1985-86, the college was housed in Vivekananda Centre with a single classroom. The BA and BCom courses were started here without providing any other basic amenities.

 The government sanctioned eight acres of land for constructing a building for the college in 1986-87, but is yet to release funds, a quarters of century later.

In 2000, three rooms were constructed with the help of a grant of Rs. 22 lakh from the APMC. The college was shifted to this new building in 2004. 

The college has 14 lecturers including a principal and 25 guest lecturers, one office inspector and two clerks.

It also has a computer lab, a library and a room each for the principal and for the teaching staff.

The problem has been brought to the attenton of the government often, but no action has been forthcoming.
