The campus has made a significant contribution in the periods of two decades trying to impart the quality education to the students of lower and lower middle class communities. The major economic source of the campus is the studeents' fee apart from the regular grants of University Grants Commission (UGC). Similarly, UGC Second Higher Education Project, Scheeme 'D' selected GMC for other grants. There are 574 students studying in graduate level. Out of which 371 are females, 203 percent males. The graduate students of this campus have engaged in multiple sectors. It is important to identify their employment situation in order to evaluate the standard of the production that will be supportive to make further plans for qualitative education. The study focuses on: what is the situation of graduate passed students from GMC, their social relationship and the way they are supported by the education they have gained from this institution.
