Maintenance Policy

The campus holds well established standard systems and procedures for maintaining the physical, academic and support facilities that are governed by the supervision of faculty in-charges in college level. They ensure the various aspects of utilization and maintenance of the physical, academic and support facilities such as maintenance of buildings, laboratories, classrooms, library, computers, etc.

The proper function of equipment in all laboratories is ensured in every semester by the lab technicians and minor repairs such as installing replacement parts are carried out by them as and when they are needed. When there is a major repair work, the purchase committee handles the service and maintenance request appropriately by placing an order to the corresponding engineering experts during summer vacation. Stock register is maintained in all laboratories and audits are conducted by stock verification committee to check the availability and working of the equipment every year.

First aid kits are kept in all major laboratories and department to meet any eventuality. Fire extinguishers of ISI mark of adequate capacity and numbers are provided in eye catching spots in the college buildings especially in all laboratories. Fire extinguishers are well maintained and checked periodically and refilling is done well before the due date. The general maintenance procedures followed in the laboratories are as follows.

  1. The lab faculty in-charge and technicians maintain the lab stock register.
  2. Stock verification is verified and inspected by the Heads of the Departments.
