The MissionThe College came into being with a mission to provide higher education to the poorer and deprived sections of the people of the area. The goal has been to provide an education that integrates curricular knowledge with value education and need based training.
Rabindranath Tagore's message: Nishi din Alok shiksha jwaluk prane (Let the flame of knowledge eternally illumine the soul), has inspired and guided the institution in its endeavour to light up the inner flame among its pupil as well as to empower them to face the challenges of life ahead.
