Mechanism / Norms and procedures for democratic / good governance

A fortnightly general staff meeting to discuss future activities and events to be implemented and the problems and issues that have occurred in the past fortnight. The decisions are arrived through a consensus.

Departmental meetings to discuss functioning, academic matters, purchase of equipments, staff development, students attendance etc. are conducted periodically.

Various committees have been formed to involve more staff in good governance. The staffs are the members of the following committees:

  • Purchase Committee

The periodic meetings of the above committees help in good governance. Student feedback on Institutional Governance / Faculty Performance:
