The Vision of the institution is based on Nalanda and Takshashila. Nalanada= Na + Alam + Da which means knowledge cannot be completely imparted; where generation and acquisition of knowledge goes on unabated. Takshashila literally means shaping stone into an idol. It stands for continuous development of the students. Some stones are porus and soft, some are spotted and some are hard.We aimed at shaping our students and developing them into the ideal human beings.
