2. Date of establishment- June 2013
3. Nature of the department in brief-
Department of Chemistry was established in June 2013. All the faculty members are well experienced and highly qualified. The staff members are actively involved in the research work. During the last four years they have published total  07 research papers in National and International Journals. Department have received  grant of rupees 36.66 lakh through a Major research project entitled “Design and Stereoselective synthesis of Aminocyclitols, Pactamycin and Zwittermicin A via Carbohydrate derived Nitrones” funded by SERB. Department has received funds from different agencies viz. UGC, SERB. Department also conducts various co-curricular activities like Science Day, Industrial Visits, and organized guest lectures etc. In the recent past, department faculties have successfully organized National conference on “Recent Trends and Development in Environmental and Basic Sciences” in collaboration with IQAC and other departments. Amongst all students in our department 80% are the tribal students. Through the SERB funded project, research lab was established so that the essence of research will reach and help our mission of rendering to the well-being of tribal society.
