ABOUT US

The undergraduate course in Botany was established in the year 1964 and upgraded as Post graduate Department in 1993 under Self Finance Stream. M.Sc. Botany has been renamed as M.Sc. Plant Biology and Plant Biotechnology in 2002. The department has seen the glory of its growth and development during the past 26 years of its inception. As a mark of 25 year of completion the department organized the National level conference and Exhibition on “Herbal Biodiversity and Health Management-New Strategies and Approaches (HBHM)” in February, 2019. The Department is functioning with eligible and well qualified teachers – 5 permanent in Self-Supporting Stream.
