About Us

Dept of English was established in 1965 as a UG Dept . It was upgraded to a PG dept in 1982. From a modest beginning, the Dept has carved a niche for itself due to its constant yearning for pursuit of excellence and an unfailing commitment to add value to its curriculum by organizing various types of co curricular and extra curricular activities. 

Late Shri Manoranjan Bhattacharya was the first Head of the Dept who retired in 1994. Late Shri Deepak Mathur joined the Dept in 1982 . Till his untimely death in 2007, he rendered his services to the Dept. At present , there are three Faculties in the Dept : Dr Madhu D Singh (Associate Professor and Head ), Dr Jyoti Mamgain ( Assistant Professor) and Dr Anupam Sanny ( Assistant Professor).
