Infrastructural Facilities
To run any science laboratory two main essential components required are: continuous water supply and un-interrupted clean electric power supply.

There are two deep tube-wells to take care of round the clock continuous water supply in the college campus.
The college has three generators, which are connected with AMF (Auto Main Failure) panels, so that they can start or shut down themselves automatically without any human intervention as and when main supply is disrupted.

Moreover, entire electric power supply of the college is servo-stabilized to maintain the rock-steady voltage through a 90 KVA Three-phase Servo-stabilizer. Green power is also an essential requirement for any laboratory. There is a provision for 5 KVA Green power through a big battery-bank.
