The Head of MCA Dept reports . . .
“This year’s admissions to the MCA programme in Vidya was completed on 13.11.2020 and I am happy to report that the Dept could get admissions to 100% of all available seats. I believe that the Dept could achieve this only because of the full support the faculty and staff of the Dept obtained from the Management, the Principal, the Admin Dept, colleagues from other departments and above all from the present and past students of the Dept. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the MCA Dept I place on record our thankfulness to all of them for helping us make this possible.”
