Thereafter over the years, it has gradually gained momentum, phenomenal enough to recognize itself as an established seat of learning. The College is affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University, recognized by the University Grants Commission under Section 2(f) and 12[B] and was conferred by a prestigious ‘A’ Grade on being accredited by the National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC), Bangalore.
