Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world. The college is a place where students are encouraged to say" I see it, I get it & I can do it." Education plays an important role in the overall development of a student's personality & character. Education has always been meeting the needs of the individual student .Students acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the environment stimulating and purposeful. It is the duty of an institute to provide the students such a vast, co-operative & well disciplined environment.
I strongly believe that health and education are the basic essentials of any living society. It is the utmost duty of the government to make these essentials accessible to all, free of cost. Education plays a very significant role in the holistic development of ones personality. An uneducated person remains ignorant and unaware of the concept of healthy body and healthy living. Education breaks this shield of ignorance and unawareness and is given preference everywhere. It is quite essential to have a widespread of free education, accessible to all, around the globe.

A. and B.C.A.. From session 2017-18, with the introduction of Science stream (B.Sc. Non-Medical), the college is leading towards the new dimensions.

Punjabi University authorities, area residents, the whole staff and all the students, are cooperating for overall development and assisting this college to achieve the mission. We are trying our best to have financial support from the government of Punjab to facilitate overall development and infrastructure of the college. The purpose of such college was to make an affordable and cost-effective access to education in comparison to exorbitant fees charged by the private institutes.
The college truly justifies the motto of Punjabi University is vidya vichari ta paropkari on account of its selfless zeal of prospering and propagating quality education for a better nation. The college is no less than a temple, since it makes the sacred knowledge reach its disciplined disciples. I am always available for the students and to facilitate for their disciplined grooming.
