Department of Punjabi


The Department of Punjabi possesses the significance of being one of the initial departments to be established along with the foundation of the College in 1966. Originally, the Department offered compulsory and elective courses in Punjabi to the undergraduate students. With the passage of time, in 1991, the master’s course was introduced for the postgraduate class elevating the department to the current status of The PG Department of Punjabi. The first batch of master’s class consisted of 10 students and the strength increased to 40 within one year of the introduction of the course, gaining popularity and acceptance amongst prospective students. Till date the strength has been constantly on an increase. The Department saw gradual progression under the able headship of Prof Gurcharan Singh Sakhi, Prof Dharam Singh, Prof Shinderpal Singh, Prof Labh Singh Kheva and the present head, Dr Devinder Singh, respectively, since the establishment of department till date. The current faculty consists of 8 members, namely, Dr Gurmej Singh, Prof Kulbir Singh, Dr Jaswinder Singh, Dr Jaswinder Kaur, Dr Jagdeep Singh, Dr Sarbjeet Kaur, Dr Hanspreet Kaur. Prof Jagjit Singh and Prof Balwinder Singh are the retired faculty members who served this college in the yester years with meritorious scholarship and dedication.

PG Department of Punjabi is running a ‘SahitSabha’ which is actively working to motivate students to specialise in literary creativity and writing skills. It regularly organises ‘Kavidarbar’ and other activities to boost the interest of students in Punjabi literature. The Department also constantly organises seminars, tours to historical and other places of interest to enhance and enrich the knowledge of students and teachers.
