Faculty:

The teaching staffs of the department are engaged in research projects in collaboration with national as well as international organizations. Some of the teachers also render advisory services in national decision making process both at policy and implementation levels. Most of the faculties of the department are also contributing as members of the many high level committees in the Government. The teachers have regular contributions at national and international conferences, and many of their work are published regularly in national and international journals and proceedings.

The number of present teaching staff is very meager. But in the near future more teachers will be required to cater for the need of the department. Out of twenty three teachers, eight are abroad now for higher studies.
