“The college emblem bears a line 'ऋते ज्ञानान्न मुक्तिः' from Upanishad which means, without knowledge liberation is not possible. Knowledge is the sole tool to attain the final liberation in one's life. This reflects wonderful teachings from our Vedic literature which is the exponent for mental and intellectual independence. This concept is one of the precious gifts bestowed upon by the Upanishad. The ultimate motto of the institution is based upon the above concept which helps to comprehend the subjective knowledge and shape up the personalities of the students of the institution”
