Students are the torchbearers of the state and the nation. It is the duty of the college to instil in the students a sense of responsibility by enabling them to abide by the following tenets based on responsibility.
1)All students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of a member of the college community. Such conduct is based on respect for the dignity and rights of individuals as well as academic and personal integrity.
2)The college demands consistent attendance from its pupils. When absent for medical reasons and emergencies leading to the death of a family member or a relative, students must produce a letter of justification from a parent or guardian which the principal of the college must countersign before they can return to class.
3)Students should inform the concerned teachers about such emergencies (medical/death/others) before submitting the medical, death certificates or any other factual evidence justifying their claim for absence.

on the nature of the damage.

consumption, and sale of cigarettes, narcotics, and tobacco products in educational settings. Hence, it is the responsibility of the students to abstain from consumption of alcohol, or smoking of cigarettes, as it may call for strict disciplinary action varying from suspension to semester break etc. depending on the intensity of the misconduct.
9) It is the responsibility of the students to respect the college uniform. Students found loitering in the market and surrounding areas in college uniforms long past college hours will be summoned by the college discipline committee and will be charged a fine of Rs 1000. The college will not entertain any excuses in this regard. Repeated failures by the same student to adhere to this regulation
may lead to the student’s suspension from college.
10) It is the utmost responsibility of the student to inculcate a sense of belongingness towards their institution. It is their responsibility to preserve the sanctity of the institute. Hence male and female students found in comprising positions within the college premises will be summoned by the college discipline committee for disciplinary action varying between suspension to semester break etc. depending on the nature and intensity of the misconduct.
11) Students shall bear the responsibility of avoiding participation in any political meets or rallies in the college uniform. More so they should not propagate any idea, ideology, religion etc. within the college premises.
