Presently around 536 students are getting their education here.

The institutions have been imparting best quality education comparable with city institutions by engaging highly qualified teaching staff and providing excellent infrastructural facilities. The students are charged very nominal fees keeping their economic background in mind and in some deserving cases their fees are totally waived off. The Secular Approach The institutions under the Trust adopt a secular approach in admitting students, without discriminating them on the basis of caste, creed, race or sex. The Trust also has a policy of providing equal opportunity to candidates while hiring teaching staff. Meritocracy is our sole mantra. A few deserving students from weaker sections of society are provided free education, and all the others in those categories are helped by arranging scholarships from the respective welfare departments. Our teachers take active role in counseling those students and coordinating in the processes.
