  • There is an absolute callous in our college with hardly 5-6 faculty members . While the teachers are very strict about exams and assignments but they hardly have any passion to teach and help out the students. The labs are in a terrible state and the quality of teaching is also pathetic. In fact wbut is on the verge of loosing ugc grant due to the disastrous state of the infrastructure and also due to the absence of a proper vc.
  • The overall experience is not good at all.
