The decision was taken in the meeting of 20th Executive Council of the University under the chairmanship university vice chancellor Prof Mohammad Miyan.

“Sanskrit remains the supreme language, but even while other languages were taking shape, Sanskrit continued to be the vehicle of creative and all other scholarly work. Sanskrit, which is a part of our cultural heritage, needed to be given importance in any educational institution. So the University is launching the programme in next academic session,” said Prof Miyan.

Senior scholars will be invited to develop the curriculum and structure of the programme in this regard. Initially the programme would begin with two year M.A. programme and subsequently introduce the research programmes in Sanskrit.

 Previously the Academic Council has already approved for the starting of the Hindi department in the University. Sanskrit, being the language of ancient India is the repertoire of Indian wisdom, art, philosophy, literature and sciences. To study Sanskrit was a must for an Indian student in the olden days, if he had to be considered as a scholar by the society.
