Books borrowed by the students must be returned to the library within the stipulated date, failing which a fine is imposed at the rate of Re.1 per day. Disfiguring, damaging or tearing pages of books are serious offences and are severely dealt with using extreme measures, including expulsion from the college. Books must be returned to the library by the students before depositing fees and forms for the final university examination. Students must pay five times the purchase value of the book for loss or damage of any book. However, in certain cases students may be allowed to replace the book by purchasing a new book.

Each departmental Seminar Library maintains a Issuing-Register Book to keep a record of the books issued. The main objective of the Seminar Libraries is to facilitate their further demand of books.
