BOTANY DEPARTMENT
The inception of the Botany department as under graduate department came into existence in the year 1 July, 1965. Since then, the department has made remarkable progress both in teaching and research. In 2005 ,the PG course was  started in the department under self finance scheme. Both UG and PG courses were affiliated with HNB Garhwal University, a central university. PG  students also secured positions in the HNBGU main merit list. UG course is government aided course. After establishment of SGRRU by the education mission of Shri Guru Ram Rai in 2017 all the self finance courses of the college were shifted to that university. At present the department is offering UG course under choice based credit system (CBCS). The department has awarded 4 Ph.D.'s and 41 dissertations to P.G. students.
The department has UG laboratory with LCD facility, well equipped research laboratory, herbarium and its own library. The library consist of 395 text books, 50 reference books and journals.  The department is known for its outstanding research activities particularly in the field of Ecology,  Palaeobotany, Taxonomy, Palynology, Mycology and Plant Pathology. Two major projects (DST-SERB & CSIR) are in the Department's credit under Dr Arun Joshi (PI). Two faculty members (with Ph.D. degree) and  two technical  staff are presently engaged.  
The faculty members  of the department have published research papers, book, chapters in a book and actively participate in administrative works. They are members of various academic and research bodies.  Faculty members are continuously participated in different seminars, workshops and training programs, conducted by different institutions and universities within India and abroad. The department is also linked with BSI and FRI for study and research. 
In the memory of former head of the department late Dr (Mrs) Seema Saxena, her family has initiated "Smt. Seema Saxena Smriti Puruskar" every year from 2019 onwards is being given to the meritorious student of bio group (CBZ & ZBG) at UG level.
Alumni of the department are well placed in different services like Banking, Defence, Teaching etc.
VISION
To empower students with innovative life skills and social value for global competency. Students be encouraged to take some of the credits from humanities for their holistic development.
Future Perspectives
Yearly field excursion/ study tour to the meritorious students of each semester to get familiarized with the basic concepts and techniques of plant collection.
Extension of herbarium with the help of students to generate keen interest amongst them to take up taxonomy for their higher studies.
Development of Botanical garden to increase the green cover area of the college campus.
To strengthen collaboration with other scientific institutions/ colleges/ Universities like CAP, Doon University, Sri Dev Suman University,  UCOST etc.
