Rules & Regulations



Disciplinary Rules and Regulations


    Everybody might admit that there is nothing that can be substituted for self-discipline and a serious devotion to duty, a spirit of respect and love for all that is good, noble and beautiful in life. The college expects students to keep their vision high, maintain their moral dignity and purity of character and solicit co-operation from the parents to minimize the necessity of enforcing rules and regulations. 
    The college has developed the tradition of a homely but formal atmosphere of freedom with responsibility, treating one another with love and respect. We have some honourable as well as proud alumni who have set a very good tradition in the institution. However, we lay down some norms of general conduct within College Premises, Office, Library, Hostels and in the NCC as well as NSS unit. We, the North Bank college family, hope to continue such types of norms for forthcoming days. Students have to maintain the highest standard of behaviour and discipline both inside and outside the college. They are required to improve and maintain consistency in their performance in the college as well as university examinations in order to get promoted to the subsequent semesters. Simultaneously, the students must develop their personality and performance in other co-curricular activities also.
