It's been a good time in this college, and the only con I have come across is it's location. Though it's in proximity to Kashmere Gate metro station, but the area is quite polluted. Coming to the faculty, teachers here are very cooperative and are always ready to help you with your doubts as per your convenience. Cultural, Technical societies add to the plus points.
