Maintenance of Moral Values :-
The institution is doing various activities keeping the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhiji into the centre. A base of Gandhian thought is moral values‚ So the institution has maintained this principle in its administration. The institution has kept it self away from taking bribe donations etc. as they are being practiced in other educational institution likewise during the recruitment of workers or students in the institution. It has never offered any bribe to avail fanacial assistance or grants from the government as well as the private agency. As a result of it on many occasions it had to confront with corrupt elements.
