The college is situated in a rural area and hence majority of the students who join this college are mainly from the villages in and around the college hailing from agricultural families. Most of them are first generation students who pursue higher education. They studied in government schools particularly in the medium of vernacular language. Therefore, naturally they have a fear towards English and Mathematics and this has developed a kind of inferiority complex in the minds of such students. Therefore it is considered that great responsibilities on the part of college lie on its shoulders that the students should be made to break out of the shell within which they are contained, comeout and shed their fear,hesitation and shyness. For doing this, the college organizes several training programmes right from first year onwards. During the first year, for improving his/her communication skills in English two hours are allotted in the regular timetable, teaching them basic English grammar in addition to the training programme for speaking tolerably good English. This training programme continues even for the second year. Suitable changes for improving the students listening, writing and reading skills were made in the curriculum. During the second year, focus is towards improving the students skills in mathematical aptitude and other skills as expected by the industries recruiting the students.
For getting a good employment, a finishing school programme which is unique to our college only is organized in which the professional trainers and personnel belonging to Human Resources Development Department of various companies and Professors from various institutions are invited to train the students in various skills for more than three weeks during the summer vacation for pre final year students. In addition to the above training programmes the Infosys and TCS companies visit the college for giving training to the students in the name of Global Business Foundation Skills and Affirmative Action Training Programme for hundred hours, totally free of cost. In addition to the above training programmes for developing employability skills, Value Based Programmes are also conducted for imbibing the human values and a compulsory training programme in yoga and meditation so as to develop the balanced body and mind and improve concentration. Such a kind of programme will transform the students into good and socially responsible citizens. These programmes bring out enormous transformation on the students and it has resulted in all the 100 percent of students who are eligible to attend the interview get placed in various companies. Thus, making the students, from rural backgrounds, who studied in government schools and having a very low self confidence to shed their fear,hesitation, inhibition, shyness and to develop self confidence, communication and other skills so as to get good placement is the Distinctiveness of the Institution.
