The reason I chose Indira is it's exciting and fun environment and it is not only good in academics but also it supports every form of art and sports and extra-curricular. It gives attention to student's fitness and well-being. Every year the college organizes multiple events that helps us compete inter-college and explore new horizons of cultural activities. Where on one hand There are Events like debates, mad-ads, quiz that academically help us push ourselves, on the other hand we have dancing, singing, talent hunt, etc. that help us be confident in show-casing our talents better. Here the college life is packed with fun experiences and every day it’s a new and different adventure. I'll always be proud of my decision to choose this college.
I believe, this era holds promising career growth for creativity & application-based learning. Here at IIMP, we have friendly, supportive & highly experienced faculties who keep challenging us from time to time to think out of the box. Coming to our campus, it is clean, green & well maintained. Also, as I moved to a new city, i was extremely scared to discover the so called ‘Hostel Life’ and so was my family. But here at Indira it didn’t seem like a challenge. The warden and the hostel in-charge felt like family. The premises are safe and well equipped with all amenities. Food quality & hygiene is well maintained in all times. My family stands rest assured about my security and safety. I can happily say Indira is not just my educational institution but has also made me feel at home.

We are happy to experience a relation with our faculties who maintain the code of conduct, deliver the best possible knowledge, follow innovative teaching methods and are easy to approach at the same time. Decorum of the college is very positive, which motivates us as students to learn and grow professionally. Even the Library and other facilities are not just always available but have a very positive vibe that makes us feel connected to our institute. I feel this connection with our college is what boosts our morale at all times and helps us deliver better in our academic and curricular performance.
Indira is a very happening place. Everything here keeps you motivated, be it the management, staff or seniors. Everyone pushes you towards being better every day.We as students get highly attracted towards the practical and activity stuff, Indira gives us the best opportunity to showcase our talents, be it on stage or behind the stage.Also, we have several field visits that helps us to gain the practical knowledge of how things actually work.Personally, I was very excited when Indira gave us the opportunity to attend the "world HRD congress" which was held in Taj Lands end, Mumbai, where HR's from different countries were there to speak in that grand event and we learnt a lot.Honestly, at Indira you become a better version of yourself daily and I am very proud that I choose Indira as the first step towards my career.
“Great Colleges can’t exist without great students, but I believe that even great students can’t exist without great Colleges.”Indira is a perfect amalgamation of academics, activities, fun, culture and everything that a great college should possess. Talking from my personal experience, the college has a perfect atmosphere or if I may call it vibe that a student strives for. Not only focusing on academics, Indira gives you a lot of opportunities to develop and harness your personal skills by putting you in various situations and giving you various responsibilities. I believe in today's’ world the practical skills are more important than the academics, and that is where our college steps in to help you develop these skills and aid you to become your best version.
