The Department of Sanskrit was created since the establishment of the college and functioning till date following the syllabus framed by the university of Burdwan and Kazi Najrul University since academic session 2015-16. Prof. Rajat Baran Dutta Roy was the first Head of the Department of Sanskrit. Prof Ramananda Acharya was a renowned scholar of this Department . At present, three full-time teachers and two part-time teachers are serving the department maintaining its tradition and reputation. The number of students of both honours and general courses is increasing  in a steady way. Contexually we have to mention that before the year 2000, the numbers of students was very poor and the lack of job was the main issue in this particular subject. Around that time when the Government started appointing teachers in Government aided schools through the School Service Commission, then the scenario changed gradually and the number of students increased. At present, the Department has achieved its former glory through erudite teachers and dedicated students

Courses: The Department offers undergraduate honours course, undergraduate program and undergraduate generic course. Curriculum and syllabus of these courses is under CBCS with the affilation of Kazi Nazrul University, Asansol.
