The Institute reserves to itself the right to remove or rusticate students from the rolls on the grounds of deliberately furnishing false particulars for admission to the Institute. The Institute can also dismiss students whose diligence or progress in studies is steadily unsatisfactory or whose conduct is harmful to the other students. Immorality, grave insubordination, contempt of authority, or wilful damage to property is always a sufficient reason for immediate dismissal.

The faculty maintains regular contact with the parents/guardians of their students to keep them informed of the state of their ward’s academic pursuits, their general conduct or behavior, and interest in cultural and other co-curricular activities, etc. Once a semester, parent-teacher meetings are held preferably with a prior appointment. However, parents can come to meet the staff between 03:00 PM and 04:00 PM on any working day, if needed for private discussions and potential changes in their ward.
