Amenities

 

The facilities available in this rural college are impressive. As well as mains electricity, there is a powerful generator to make up any shortfall. Three large tanks supply piped water to most of the toilets and bathrooms while five hand pumps are available for those who prefer the warm water pumped up from 130 feet underground. The water is sweet and safe to drink.

The college boasts a computer room and a well-stocked library with ample table space for keen students to work at. The lecture rooms are airy and spacious and all have ceiling fans. Four regional daily newspapers arrive early every morning as well as an English national paper. There is a landline telephone and two mobiles, a fax machine, large colour television, bank and a twice-weekly market selling a range of fresh fruit, vegetables and household items. There are numerous shops on the roadside selling everything from medicine to sewing thread seven days a week. Amarpurkashi has its own bus stop just outside the village, connecting it to Chandausi, a market town 8 miles away, Bilari, just 3 miles north and the noisy bustling city of Moradabad, 20 miles further on. The nearest railway station is just 4 miles away while Chandausi and Moradabad stations have computerized booking facilities where you can book a journey to anywhere in India. The project canteen provides friendly service and plentiful vegetarian meals freshly cooked from local produce.
