- Department Library
Though there is a very good collection of books on the subject in our main library, our department maintains a small library of our own. We have a modest collection of about 594 books which is increasing every year. We collect an amount of Rs.200/ every year from students at the time of admission which is used for the purchase of books and journals.
Books are issued as per the norms of the main library, which in turn is formulated by the University. We maintain an issue and stock register and keep their accounts properly in our Department. We subscribe magazines and journals within our financial limitations. A separate space is provided in the Department for reference purposes and reading journals and magazines. The journals and magazines are displayed neatly. The students can make use of this small facility during breaks and before and after classes.

Our Department has a very active association. It is formed at the start of the academic year with the HoD as the President. Members of the Association include a student elected as secretary, another staff member and 3 more student members. Most of the activities related to the Department are carried out by the Association.
We organise Hindi week celebrations by conducting talks by eminent faculty of Hindi from other institutions, holding quiz competitions, essay writing, poetry writing competitions etc. under the aegis of the Association. We arrange a study tour every year with the participation of most of the students.
As is the general practice of our College, we firmly adhere to the Tutorial system. By this method we are able to communicate to the students better and recognize their problems and difficulties so that we could solve them more effectively. We have a very healthy student-teacher relationship which leads to a more efficient teaching-learning process.
As is the general practice of our College, Aptitude Test is conducted every year for the first year students to assess their capabilities and shortcomings. It’s conducted in four sections. The first section deals with knowledge in English language, the second logical reasoning, the third GK and the fourth deals with the main subject which the student has opted. This test helps the teacher to assess a student’s academic capability.
Every year a bridge course is conducted by the Department of Hindi to accustom the students with the new syllabus. This is usually conducted for the students who take admission for the first year UG programme in BA Hindi. The duration of the class is one week. Subjects like grammar, a brief history of Hindi Literature, soft skills etc. are taught.
Parent Teacher Association of the Department is called at least twice a year. This helps us to have an interaction with the parents and have an idea about the state of affairs and their background. This leads to better understanding of a student which in turn leads to smooth academic functioning.
Remedial and Special classes
Weak students are identified at the beginning of every academic year through an aptitude test and remedial classes are conducted for them. The Department follows a definite time table for these classes. Advanced learners are given additional assignments to improve upon their excellence. Special classes are arranged regularly on Saturdays and other holidays.
