    This Institute is one of the best Institute in India. ... Really you will never regret spending the precious seven years of your life..... Teachers are very good and supportive.... Environment is best suited for studies. .. Apart from studies this Institute builds your overall personality and make you a better human being..... But the only shortcoming of this Institute is it's senior teacher... .They cannot cope up with the current competition physics department is the worst I must say.... This is my honest and candid review of the institution which is very close to my heart and made me a good human being. .
