Today it is Asia’s largest multi faculty college.

To achieve this, students are encouraged to participate in the extensive array of opportunities which exist beyond the classroom. They are rewarded for their excellence in academic and co-curricular activities by bestowing on them gold medals and awards sponsored by philanthropists. 52 gold medals and 15 cups for academics and extra-curricular achievements are awarded annually.
