The University Grants Commission is a statutory body of the Central Government of India which recognizes universities and colleges. The same commission also provides grants to government recognized universities and colleges. This college got recognition in the year 1978 under section 2 (f) and 12 (b) of UGC Act, 1956.

The University Grants Commission provides various types of financial aid to the college from time to time, which is used in the development of the college. The various schemes under which the college received assistance are as follows:

·      Development assistance to the college for construction of buildings

Our college branch uses this financial aid as per the guidelines of University Grants Commission.
