This being the motto of the college, we impart value based education. We do not believe in hammering values in the student but bringing to their own realization of what is good for them and for the society. The college also believes in an overall development of the students and has always encouraged and motivated those students and instilled in them the confidence required in this world with cut throat competition at all levels. Quoting lines of Swami Vivekananda “Education is the process by which, character is formed strength of mind is increased and intellect is sharpened as a result of which one can stand on his feet” It is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1950 bearing No.F-1844{Pune}
