In order to distinctively stand in a crowd of educationally competent world, the college has focussed on only one aspect- Student upliftment aligned with its exalted Vision and committed Mission of the institution. This has enabled the college to envision all its efforts towards a particular direction with three shades of influence:


Inspired by the Buddhist teachings of insight and enlightenment, this approach focuses on empowering the teaching learning methodology in the campus with specific attention to the different categories of students possibly found in a classroom. The teachers are equipped with pedagogical strategies that divert attention equally to the slow, average and advanced learners found in the student community making education a rewarding experience for all kinds of learners. Integration of ICT and the Outcome Based Educational Model into the classrooms and curriculum respectively has further enhanced the prospects for an impressive and long-lasting comprehension of the concepts leading to better opportunities in the occupational sector. Different clubs and committees are dedicated to deliver a future of financial independence for our students by opening up ways of entrepreneurial prominence and as a result, the college has been gaining momentum in the aspects of student progression in the form of academic recognitions and awards.


Empowering women is the ultimate aim of the college and huge potential was discovered in the fields of cultural arts and sports activities in the campus. The list of recognitions goes way beyond the national boundaries and has hallmarked the institution as a ‘centre of excellence’ not just in academics but also in overall developmental aspects. Rigorous training and complementary motivational classes and encouraging schemes are designed to inspire more students into this rewarding field. The college strikes a good balance between academics and the activities held in the campus as it reckons the prominence of undertaking both in equal doses for a complete deliverance of quality education.


The word ‘pratheeksha’ stands for hope in Sanskrit. Here, it denotes a promise of hope delivered by the institution in transforming the students into socially committed and responsible individuals as they step out into the world. Abiding by the coat of arms of the college that represent Light Life and Love the institution works relentlessly by conducting activities that inflate the essence of humanity and social commitment among the students. Actively functioning units like the NSS and NCC have become iconic examples of unconditional service to the society through voluntary social service and relief activities during social crises. With the dedicated services of clubs and cells like ASAP, Women’s Club, Alumnae Associations and others functioning in the campus, the college is hopeful of delivering promising citizens for the nation in the near future.
