The first cycle of accreditation by NAAC was carried out in 2003 and the college was awarded B+ grade. The team was quite happy with the functioning and ambience of the college, be it the initiatives and organization of the Management, administration and dynamism of the Principal, commitment and collegiality of the staff or the outstanding performance of the students in academics as well as co-curricular and extension activities. The overall all analysis and suggestions of the Peer Committee are given below:
“This twenty three years old institution has made steady strides even when functioning under the ambit of the affiliating system. The dynamism and commitment of the staff has made all the difference. Readiness and willingness to take up extra work for the benefit of the student community is very much in evidence as the range of activities of students is perused”.
“The authorities of the College might consider the following with reference to their future growth:
(i) Offering courses in entrepreneurship, personality development, communication
(ii) Taking up minor research projects by obtaining funds from agencies like UGC,
Department of Science and Technology, etc.
(iii) Strengthening the alumni association which can support the College in many
ways internment training to students in career oriented courses, placement
opportunities, financial support for specific projects or purposes etc.
(iv) Strengthening the library with more books, audio video material etc., so that
staff and students are continuously updated.
(v) Opting for autonomy if the policy of the University and the Government will
encourage such a move”.
We have been carrying their directions as a torchlight to take us ahead on the path of quality and progress. The recommendations of the Peer Committee have been implemented and incorporated in a phased manner.

Some of them have worked with us as guest/ad-hoc faculty and some help in
transmitting their skills to our students in sports, yoga, cosmetology, music, dance
and fine arts. They frequently donate books to strengthen the library. Some of them
support us in organizing functions. An alumns of our college is a social activist and
an upcoming writer and she has organized social drive ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ in
the college collaborating with our N.S.s. Unit and Women Cell.
(iv) As per the suggestions of NAAC Peer Committee, so many measure have been taken
to strengthen the library.
A new wing has been annexed housing Research section and
Thousands of books and a good number of journals have been added to the library.
Book bank has been enriched and almost all the students who do not afford to buy text books are issued books from the book-bank for the whole session.
However, we could not opt for autonomy as suggested by the previous committee, as the policies of neither the university nor the Government in Haryana encourage for such a move by a Grant-in-aid Institution.
Since the last accreditation, each member of the faculty has been undertaking the mission to come upto expectations through active engagement in Research based activities which includes organization of National Level Seminars/Workshops.
