Strengthening Curricular

With the long history of 45 years of this college, the expertise in the panel of the Board of Studies members have always updated the syllabi with reference to the current and modern scenario. Previously before receiving the grants the majority of students from rural places perform their experiments either in groups or as demo experiments. With the financial support given by DBT remarkable number of new practicals were introduced in the UG syllabus which were earlier either not in the syllabi or were only demonstrative practical. It has immensely helped students to clear concepts taught to them in theories. It has improved the practical skills of the student & updated them with new advanced techniques practiced in sciences.
