Best Practices : The department takes care to undertake innovative activities in teaching and learning through out the year for the overall development of our students. For this we have evolved some practices which contribute towards empowering our students with life skills for their future. We have a programme named "Aaj Ka Samachar" which is a five minutes segment at the beginning of every class. In this way the students participate and develop an interest in general affairs and news paper reading, which helps them in their general knowledge and face later life with confidence. The department also organizes a quiz on the lessons taught every 15 days, in which the students participate and these provide evaluation for both teachers and the students. Besides this all the teachers of the department take ICT enabled classes at least twice in a month. The teachers also provide free books to the needy students. The department has also constituted financial awards for the topper students of both U.G. and P.G. final year examination.
