Every student is given with an equal opportunity and attention during theory & practical to improve the quality and meet the demands of the students in different activities are adopted in the department as a need based one.

Botanical Garden:

Department Library:

The Botany department maintains its own departmental library consisting of more than 350 books. The books are collected and maintained from the specimen copies received from each staff and Publishers, this facility is utilized by all the students.  An average each student gets one book till the end of the week. If the student will not return there books at time we will ask them to pay a book to department.

 Department strength:

There is no much variation in the student strength. year after year student strength is increasing for basic sciences because basic sciences offer a broad flat form for higher studies and a wide range of job opportunities from class fourth to class one posts.

Departmental Activities:

Meetings:

Department is conducting 2-3 meetings by HOD every year is a regular system prevailing in the department, the same is continued during the semester also.

For every semester faculty meeting is conducted after the re-opening of the college, to discuss the academic matters, syllabus, previous student’s feedback and their performance in tests, internals (Theory and Practical). Departmental problems, developmental aspects and other matters are also discussed, which makes the faculty to involve in every activity of the department.

We also discuss the departmental budget to be allotted by the college authority, department requirements books, chemicals, glass wares, etc for each academic year and beginning of semester. The details of the meetings, discussions, and other things are written and maintained in a separate register.

Performance Evaluation:

In order to get the feedback about our performance both at the theory and practical we are in the habit of taking appraisals from the students just to know and incorporate any improvement that is suggested by the students.  This is done at every class at least twice in year. The students are strictly informed to be fare and forthright in their expressions of performances of the Staff. 

c) Staff:

 Faculty performance appraisal is one of the best practices by getting the feedback from students (Learners). This practice has been following since longtime. Now it has become an improving activity among the faculty.

Students’ feedback about faculty is an easier task to know about one self with their performance in the class room and outside. The suggestions, opinions and their demand would be discussed in the department meetings with faculty to incorporate their suggestions.

Students are strictly informed to be fair during their expressions about department staff performance. This work of getting performance feedback by students generally is entrusted to the class representative for any leader among them.  Before distributing the feedback papers to students, they are informed not to write their names, so as anonymity is maintained.    

The suggestions, opinions and demands of the students expressed in feedback are discussed in the department meetings with faculty  and try to bring in practice.  

Those will be solved at department level, or if, more demands of which includes financial matters, infrastructure, equipment’s etc. will be brought to the notice of Principal for further course of action.

Continuous Evaluation:

Class Tests: 

After completion of every three/four chapters a test is conducted for every class so far this year we have conducted not less than 3 tests for each class. The performance of the student is satisfactory. The attendance to the test is almost 90%. The absentees are warned and given the same questions for home assignments. 

Special care for slow learners:

The faculty takes very much special care for slow learners with by counseling them individually and tackling their personal problems as well as subject understandings. Such problems are dealt with affection. This removes the barrier or obstacles for their weak performance and complexity among themselves.

The faculty discuss with in small in groups by mixing them with normal & fast learners for to discuss among themselves. Later the students are monitored often for better performance and involvement in study activities.

Seminars:

The department conducts seminars regularly. The students have evinced greater interest in preparing the seminar. They have realized its importance in future platform performance.
