Multipurpose Seminar hall
The seminar hall has sophisticated and the state-of- the-art ICT enabled equipment, Wi-Fi, LCD, audio systems, smart boards, Virtual class equipment, advanced digital classroom equipment and lecture capturing equipment which are extensively used by both the staff and students for conduct of academic events, viz., guest lectures, student seminars presentations, quiz, debates, panel discussions, thematic events and virtual classes, state and national level seminars, installations, Parent Meet, Alumni Meet, academic award functions and various student activities to offer the best to the students. This seminar hall has the capacity to Accommodate 200 people.
 3
Open Air Auditorium (One)
The very spacious open air auditorium with 1000 capacity is established in 1999. It has a big stage and has a big screen surrounded by closed compound wall and gate. This facilitates conduct of national and international conferences, seminars, workshops, orientation programs, awareness programs/cultural and several other events like fresher’s day/annual day/College Annual day celebrations etc

Biotechnology-Lab:
 
Watson & Crick
The lab is equipped with latest equipment viz, centrifuge, uv spectrophotometer, stereo binocular microscopes, gel electrophoretic unit, cryopreservator, Potentiometer, magnetic stirrer, cyclo mixer, hemocytometer, compound light microscopes, ph meters, colorimeters, trans illuminator and teaching aids - LC projectorLaminar air flow: - it was invented by Willis J Whitfield.It is a aseptic chamber where pure cultures of bacteria can be obtained and handled further for various experiments. it is an equipment having air blower, it can produce air flow with uniform velocity along parallel flow lines, a filter called HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter is present. It can remove particles as small as 0.3µm.The filter does not allow any kind of microbes to enter into the system.Hot plate a hot plate is a portable self-contained table top small appliance features one or more electric heating elements or gas burners.In laboratory settings hot plates are generally used to heat glassware.Cooling Centrifuge is an instrument that rotates at high speed (30000rpm) and separate substances /particles based on gravitational pull.The particles are separated on the basis of mass and density by means of centrifugal force. The heavier particles settle at the bottom and the lighter particles settle on the top.These are generally used in the laboratories of biotechnology and microbiology to separate biomolecules.The speed of the centrifuge is expressed as rotations per minute (rpm) of the rotor (on to which the samples are loaded.Autoclave was invented by Charles ChamberlandIt is a device that uses moist heat to sterilize equipment’s and other objects. it can sterilize solids, liquids and any instruments that are heat stable.Autoclave is similar to a pressure cooker; they both work on the power of steam. even bacterial spores can be killed using autoclave, the sterilizing conditions in an autoclave are the temperature of 121°c at 15lbs/sq.inch of pressure for 20 minutes. Water bath is laboratory equipment made from a container filled with heated water. It is used to incubate samples in water at a constant temperature over a long period of time.Microscopes (Monocular and binocular) are as basic tools to observe microorganisms and to study the structural details of the cells. the compound microscope has two systems of lenses for greater magnification, they are the ocular or eyepiece lens that one looks into and the objective lens.Colorimeter is an object used for colorimeter, or the process of measuring the heat of chemical reactions or physical changes as well as heat capacity. it is one of the measurement devices used in the study of thermodynamics, chemistry and biochemistry. Colorimeter is used to quantify substances based on colour change of a substance due to reaction. Since colour is the parameter for determination of quality and quantity, it is known as colorimeter.The colorimeter can be conveniently used for substances which absorb light. 
Electronic Balance (Dona Balance) : It is lab equipment used for measuring weights of substances. The electronic balance allows the user to quickly and accurately measure the mass of substance to a level of accuracy impossible for traditional balances to achieve.It is used for making solutions used in lab practical’s. ø it is an apparatus used for the process of electrophoresis.In electrophoresis unit the biomolecules are separated based on the charge and mass, when potential difference is applied on it.The biomolecules move towards the oppositely charged electrodes. Lighter particles move farther than that of the lighter ones.The process is helpful for the separation of components after isolation. 9.Magnetic stirrer it is a lab device that employs a rotating magnetic field to cause a stir bar immersed in a liquid to spin very quickly thus stirring it. the rotating field may be created either by a rotating magnet or a set of stationary electromagnets, placed beneath the vessel with liquid.PH meter the PH meter is used to determine the PH (acidity or basicity) of solutions at unknown PH as well as for setting of PH of various media for the cultivation and testing biochemical activities of microorganisms. PH. is expressed as a number from 0 to 14.UV Tran illuminators are utilized as a part of molecular biology labs to view biomolecules that has been isolated by electrophoresis.This illuminator is used to view whenever a bio molecule is to be viewed clearly. It passes a florescent light on a bio molecule and makes it visible clear.Cyclo mixer it is designed for mixing for proper mixing of liquids.Speed of the mixing can be regulated through the knobs provided on the control panel.It is supplied with interchangeable mixing heads.Chromatographic chamber.Chromatography is a technique performed on a sheet of glass, plastic or aluminum foil, paper which is coated with thin layer of adsorbent material, usually silica gel, alumina or cellulose. It helps in separating components based on its molecular weight.LCD projector is a teaching aid used for power point presentations and playing educative videos.Overhead projector has long since replaced the traditional chalkboard as one of the main teaching aids and is used in lecture theaters and classrooms all over the world. Even though computer-based data projectors are increasing in popularity, they are indeed very expensive, and this means that they are in no way a match for the overhead projector.

Botany Lab:
 
2Labs-(Calvin,  Parasara Labs)J.C. Bose Research Cell
Botanical garden:
The 2 Botany laboratories are a storehouse of botanically diverse collection of plants, preserved specimens of herbs, fruits, medicinal plants, wood, digital herbarium, seed herbarium etc., to add to the teaching learning resources and come attached with a spacious storeroom.The Botany research lab is well established and equipped with U.V. Spectrophotometer, Laminar hood, Centrifuge, Muffle furnace to facilitate faculty and student research work.Botanical Gardens – This is for the conduct of physiology experiments and to train students on Horticultural techniques, vegetative propagative methods, identification and importance of medicinal plants. The botanical garden has a number of ornamental, medicinal and vegetable plants.
