Today, the furniture and other articles of the roof collapsed classrooms in the building were shifted to the new building that is adjacent to the collapsed one, under the supervision of College Principal D. Ravi. 

From tomorrow, the  lab equipment and other paraphernalia in all laboratories that functioned from the old collapsed portion of the building, will be shifted to the new building, with all safety and precautionary measures in place.
