This school was self sustaining its activities.huh A good number of students were admitted every year. The students were awarded two years' Diploma in Civil Engineering Course by the Board of Engineering College.

In 1962 U.P. Government took over this Institute by constituting a registered society named " Allahabad Engineering Polytechnic, Allahabad. "

The society constituted a Board of Management/Managing Committee constituting of 11 members to manage affairs of the Polytechnic. The state government awarded the status of Grant in Aid to the Institute.
