The cadets of the first batch (1994 Batch) stayed at a rented building 15 km away from the main campus in Jam Nawaz Ali where they had the college mess.
On the education front the college became the first ISO certified cadet college in education. The hostels were extended to increase capacity to twice the number of residents, a new hostel "Jam Sadiq" was built and the central mess extended to accommodate the increase in student population from 300 to 550 during his term. For staff and teaching faculty, housing colonies and a primary school was build to accommodate them with their families within the boundaries.
