Academics and Faculties:
Institute has well- qualified faculties. Some teachers are good and some are awesome. But the teachers are only torch-bearers , they just guide the path but one has to travel on his own. They do not spoon-feed their students. However, many of them really bother about the future of the students and do all the possible efforts to motivate them. However, the syllabus is very badly drafted. It hardly gets completed on time.

The administration is just fine, just like any other government University. As far as fees is concerned, B.A.LL.B. is a self-financing course and the fees varies every year. Currently, it is near INR 75000/- p.a.
