The galaxy of eminent personalities who have passed out of the portals of this great institution will speak volumes for the quality that this University has stood for. I salute all the great personalities and share my appreciation for the faculty and staff who have been dedicated to their work.The University's motto "Learning Promotes Natural Talent" though framed in the year 1857 is certainly a visionary statement which serves as a guiding principle for the students, as they enter the university system for their higher education.
