Our P.G. departments also serve as recognized research centers for Ph.D. degree.
The college has a well-equipped central library which provides all kinds of study material and research facilities. Our modernization plan intends to digitize all study material and transform the library into an e-library and digital library. Apart from the central library, various departments also have their own libraries which cater to the specific needs of the concerned departments. All kinds of information regarding courses, admissions, research programmes, faculties and infrastructure, as well as our efforts to improve teaching and research standards is available online, and can be gleaned through our official website of the College – http://www.mp.gov.in/highereducation/ghcbpl/default.htm We also provide electronic accessibility to international and national research journals and data bases.

From time to time the website also displays achievements of the students, teachers and the institution.
The institution not only aims at the academic upliftment of the enrolled students but also looks after their physical and extra-curricular development. To make our students accountable to society and the nation at large, the college regularly organizes activities such as NSS and NCC (Army/ Naval/ Air wing) for boys. To promote sports and games, we have well maintained playgrounds for Cricket, Hockey, Basketball, Kho-kho, Kabaddi and Football.
My admiration never stops growing for this college, since it has played a pivotal role in advancing the cause of Higher Education in this part of the State during its formative years. The galaxy of eminent personalities who have passed out of this college will speak volumes for the quality and values that this college has stood for. Its alumni have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally in various spheres of life and are spread far and wide around the world.
An important feature of this institution is to inculcate the spirit of dedication, sincerity and loyalty among our students in order to make them accountable to the organization wherever they may join and work. It is our endeavour to train the students to translate the philosophy and vision of their organization into practices and ensure that the organization feels proud of them. I have full confidence in the competence and values of our students and I am confident that they will earn distinction wherever they go.
The picture of the world is changing very fast and the challenges therein demand professionals with global acumen, who are smart, confident and capable thinkers endowed with a vision of ideas, so as to convert every challenge into an opportunity. Almost every year, in-campus drives have placed our students in reputed MNCs and corporate world. I can state with confidence that this institution is a virtual ‘Excellence in Action’ through pedagogical innovation, visionary leadership, relevant programme of study, modern curricula, committed faculty, responsive administration and devoted students.
I consider myself privileged to lead the team with compassion and steadfast commitment towards achieving excellence in all our activities. With the support of the faculty, staff and students, I am confident that the college will provide complete and holistic education that is streamlined for the students to express their natural talent and acquired knowledge in different occupations and practical life. In my capacity as the Principal of this noble institution, I welcome all students with an assurance that we shall help them gain the best kind of knowledge and build the best careers at the global level. I take this opportunity to assure the parents and guardians that their wards will be able to shape a better future by enrolling at this worthy institution.
I wish my students’ tenure at the Govt. Hamidia Arts & Commerce College would be a memorable and momentous one – a golden opportunity to excel in life and help others also excel.
