Brief History

The State of Chhattisgarh possesses rich mineral wealth of rock and mineral resources. A scientific and systematic exploration of available rocks and minerals require a centre of higher learning. With these aims and objectives the Department of Geology was established in 1956 under the founder head Dr Mukul Ghosh.

 

In its long journey of fifty seven years, the department has flourished and is now self reliant. The department is indebted to late Dr W.N. Bansode, Late Dr T.P. Paikra and Dr G.S. Parashar. The department was initiated with meager means, but now the department has latest and sophisticated instruments, equipments, computers and software etc. Our department has unique geological museum having minerals rocks (including rare American collections), fossils (Ward’s Collection) and crystal models etc.. Departmental Library comprises of 4,000 books including rare Journals, memoirs and reports of Geological Survey of India etc. The Post Graduate classes initiated in 1967, and in 1984, the department is also registered as a recognized Research Centre of Pt Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur. Presently many students are registered for Ph.D.

SWOC analysis

Action plan for next five years (Based on SWAC ANALYSIS):

 

 

  1. To meet out the shortage of research lab and lecture rooms it is essential to provide two class rooms for UG and PG Students and a research lab for research scholars.

 

  1.  For strengthening the knowledge of geology, expert lecture will be invited from alumni.

 

  1. Recruitment of teaching and supporting staff is essential. It should be brought into the notice of the state Govt

 

  1. Available facilities of qualified staff equipped lab, instruments would be utilized for consultancy.

 

  1. Funds for various activities would be generated by consultancy student fee collection, alumni, Jan bhagidari samiti Rusa and ISR.

 

  1. There are several mineral based industries, and mineral resources present in the Chhattisgarh state so there are lot of opportunity to get the job for our students.
