The buzzword across the globe for the 21st century is ‘Innovation’. Without innovation no country can achieve sustainable development and prosperity. 21st century is century of Innovation. Innovation should become the part of educational culture of all students, and it must not be limited only to students of professional courses. Innovation means original thinking /and everyone can contribute their ideas to promote innovation.

Apart from The National Institutional Ranking Framework  NIRF Ranking, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India has introduced ‘Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) to systematically rank / education institutions and universities primarily on innovation related indicators. Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) will encourage healthy competition among Higher Educational Institutions. In order to fulfil the requirements of ARIIA framework and to attain best position in ARIIA ranking/ our college has instituted the Institution Innovation Council (IIC) . The Institution Innovation Council (IIC) of our College has been approved by the MHRD, Govt of India.
