The institution promote Institution-neighbourhood-community network by utilizing the service units like NCC, NSS (3 units), YRC-Wing, and thereby ensuring students’ engagement in various aspects of socio-economic and religious-cultural importance. Volunteer activists of NSS have rendered commendable services during local fairs and festivals, by executing unit based programme and awareness drive..

The Alumni have frequent interaction with the administration and they have played a significant role in rendering support and service to different programmes of the college. The opinion of the visitors made in the visitor’s register is an index to measure the overall performance and quality of the Institution. The interaction with eminent research scholars and academicians also helps the institution to scale its quality and value.
The institute plan and organize its extension and outreach programmes on the basis of general and routine programmes like, plantation, healthcare and awareness programmes, blood donation, yoga and meditation, etc. It has marked the adoption of plants by the college students.

Samaritan spirit in the campus.
