In this age of information revolution resulting from technological development, the need for Web-site development is extremely important for an academic institution like School, college, and University to operate effectively in the global economy.
The linkage with the modern knowledge development in different fields occurring in different parts of the world can help an academic institution to update its programs. Moreover, a college can familiarize its academic, research and development activities to the outside world with the help of its Web-site.
I believe, we can build up a better linkage with the outside world through this Web-site. May I take this opportunity to express my heartiest thanks to those who left no stone unturned for developing our Web-site. I hope, we shall be able to provide more information about our college through this Web-site with the passage of time.
