The student turnover was something worth applauding this time. The respective party supporters cheered for their candidates and motivated the mob to become an integral part of the most hyped event of the college throughout.
The polling commenced at 9:30AM and ended at 11AM. With that, the results were highly awaited. SOI party in alliance with HIMSU, GGSU and INSO had a legendary win, as for the first time in the history of the college, a party won by such an enormous number and margin of votes.

SOI also reigned the polling for the post of Secretary, as Harpreet Singh with 2057 votes won over Ashish Singh (1473 votes) and Arush Dev (2187 votes) surpassed Sparsh Dhar to be elected as the Joint Secretary of the college.

Swapnil Modgill and Ankita Rai were selected as the Class Representatives of B.COM1 and BSC1.
SOI came out with flying colors in these elections as they were successful in making the students believe to their theory that, “The College needs good leaders and policy makers, who will bring about a revolution and would encourage a difference”
