The weakness of the Department is due to improper student- teacher ratio. Enrollment status is very low due to the weak enrollment rate of the neighboring Higher Secondary School.
All students are given equal opportunity for their academic benefits. Students are given equal counseling for the right courses they should opt after completion of UG course.
