Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar was the chief guest on the occasion.

“Urged the students to follow their passion. We have to respect individuality and unique talent hidden within each student,” Sinha said adding that classrooms should inculcate courage, give students the power of independent thinking and inspire them to become a better person and not just a class topper.
“Convocation is the moment of transformation in a student’s life.
