SWOT analysis is an important tool to identify and set the goal of any organization. The same is done in respect of the institution. This is done considering all the factors associated with all the stakeholders namely rules imposed by Directorate of Higher Education (Govt. of Tripura), Teachers’ Council, Students’ Council, Alumni of the college, feedback obtained from the students, local community and most importantly the existing infrastructure of the institution. Information and data generated for the analysis are from academic and administrative records. Summary of the SWOT analysis is framed as follows:
Strength implies the internal qualities or positiveness of an organization. The college has its own strength as well as potential for further developments to explore educational ventures for the welfare of the community. The strengths include:

- Availability of efficient teaching and non-teaching staff;
- Availability of huge campus and own land for further infrastructural development;

- Active NSS and NCC units which promote social responsibility among the students and the community;
