Two students qualified UGC –CSIR NET in Session 2016-17 and 2017-18 respectively while three students qualified HNB Garhwal Central University Ph.D. Entrance examination. Some are pursuing career in Research field. We are having a rich Departmental library including 215 books and subscription of 02 Journals. .
