The study revealed that, the faculty has faced a lot of challenges to effectively implement the program. Amongst these challenges, poor transportation facilities, resource supplies, shortage of time to implement CB TP, and scheduling problem were some which have been reported and found as bottleneck for the effective implementation of the program.
