Academic institution thrive when it is buzzing with students and their activities.. The lockdown since March 2020  due to COVID-19 has changed the taken for granted ways in which we have conducted classes, interacted with students and evaluated their performance. As teachers we earnestly hope that this phase is over and the students can come back to the green campus, surrounded by the flora and fauna and be bustling again with activities like before.

Warm Regards,

Prof.Saritha Kurien
