SWOC analysis of the department and future plans: 

 Strength: Student-teacher relation has always been the strength of our department. Students are always encouraged to ask any question however unreasonable it may be and teachers always try to give an agreeable answer to it.

 Weakness: Only one part time teacher. Most of the students come from poor and backward family and thereby cannot attend classes regularly as they are to provide economic support to their family. They give the economic support of their family.

Opportunities: However, the learners are always made aware of the wide scope for their future. Efforts are on to enhance the quality of the students by giving them opportunities of interaction with the senior faculty members of other cognate institutions by means of special classes.

Challenges: The main challenge is to enhance the percentage of attendance of the students in classes. To motivate the students to perform better in the examinations of the university
