The Department of Sanskrit proves itself as one of the leading departments since the very inception of Chakdaha College. It was initiated primarily as a teaching department for general course in 1972 and later it received affiliation to teach honours course in 2007. Since then many students have passed out from the department and have distinguished themselves in many walks of life. The Department has inherited a very rich academic tradition as a result. The particular objectives of the Department of Sanskrit are to guide and assist the students in the pursuit of knowledge and in various disciplines in Sanskrit Language and Literature. The department aims to provide confidence and opportunity to the young generation enabling them to innovate paths of wisdom. The department endeavors to help them in applying the core knowledge of our ancient Sanskrit literature to their own field of interest or expertise with a vision that they can lead the world to better opportunities and positive environment in all stream of knowledge.
