  • The lecturers are pretty good at Jai Hind College.
  • At least the students are satisfied with their teaching.
  • Professors of Science and Commerce Department have detailed knowledge about their subject and are co-operative, at times.
  • Most of the communication takes place in English but some teachers become extra friendly during lecture hours and start off with Hindi.
  • As it is one of the ideal colleges in Mumbai, undoubtedly some of the credit goes to the teaching staff.
