It is a matter of great pleasure that the Department of Botany has been trying hard to achieve the excellence in academic enhancement.  In order to maintain the momentum of quality consciousness, the Department has undertaken several academic activities during the year 2021-22.  The academic environment of the Department was stimulated to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. The Department has undertaken various activities throughout the session.

With the help of teachers and the regular faculty we have completed the prescribed syllabus in due time.  Regular assessment of students was also done through class test, seminars and discussions. The guest lectures by eminent Scientists and Professors were also organized for the benefit of student community.

The faculty members published their research work in scientific journals and attended National and International conferences.  At this juncture I appreciate the efforts made by all teaching and non-teaching members and students of the Department to keep pace with quality for better excellence. Hope, we all contribute to the society through the pursuit of Education, Learning and Research at the highest level of Excellence as envisaged in our mission.
