A good college campus is incomplete without its very own canteen, and GCELT is no exception to this. So it goes without saying that the canteen is an inseparable element of the institution. The canteen not only provides a place for physical refreshments but also a place to unwind and relax after a whole days work. That’s why canteen remains one of the most favourite places to be in the college campus.


The canteen of GCELT is located just beside the college ground and so surrounded by lush greens, thus along with physical refreshments it also provides mental refreshment and a great view of the campus. Because of this reason many students can be found discussing studies or even working on their project in the canteen.

The warm atmosphere and aroma of strong coffee draws student of all years equally and hence helps in developing a sense of unity and deepens the bond amongst all.

The canteen is run by a private party (group) but that party is chosen through government tender, so only the party with best quality-quantity-price combination is allowed to run the canteen. Over a fixed period of time this tender is again issued, thus a standard quality is always maintained by the party. From fully fledged lunch to small tit bits, tea, coffee, cold drinks all are provided from the canteen for a very reasonable price.

The canteen is open for everyone who comes to visit GCELT and is operational from 9am to 7pm. Lastly it can be said without slightest hesitation that the canteen is an institution by its own right, standing for the values that represents the college and its students equally.
