Old Students Association
OSA is a registered body of the institution which facilitates nostalgic journey of the students. The college takes pride in its alumni who once were learners and now when they come back as mature, experienced human beings to interact with faculty and the students, their experience proves to be a great resource for the institution to enrich itself in diverse ways.

Thus, they help juniors to get a foothold in the job market from where they can build their careers. Through this app, we can locate our students,
