After one month of the commencement / resumption of classes, there will be a general counting and students without the required percentage of attendance will be warned. At the end of the second month, there will be another counting and students without 75% attendance will be fined. Yet another counting of attendance will be done after the fourth month and students who are not likely to attain the required attendance will be asked to repeat the year or leave the College.
