Department of Punjabi


The Department of Punjabi came into existence in 1968. The Vision of the Department is to produce enlightened students who will have expertise in language and literature to boldly lead India in the world, to promote Punjabi culture and heritage through Punjabi Literature, to train the students for skill based education by enabling them to choose the pertinent carrers in their lives.

The Department actively organizes various literary and cultural programmes throughout the year. A literary programme was organized by AARSI (literary forum of Punjabi Department) on 6th September, 2017 which provided a platform for students to recite their self composed poetry and prose. The event provided an opportunity for all the students of the Department to interact and share their experiences with each other. A memorial lecture was delivered by Dr. Manjit Singh ( Ex head of Department of Punjabi of University of Delhi) on well known Punjabi writer and former Principal of our college Dr Mahinder Kaur Gill on 17 January 2018. Not only the students but the College faculty also participated enthusiastically in the Alumnai meet of the Department. The event was really a remarkable sucess in which all the Alumni shared their memories of college times and also exchanged their views on varied topics of interest.

The Department has an active Literary Society that organizes variety of events every year.
