.: Brief About Our Programmes

The idea of Remedial Programme was conceived by the University in 2000.  The Senate approved the commencement of Remedial in 2000.  Later, when the programme could not meet its aims and objective, the Senate in August, 2007 at its regular meeting set up a Committee to reposition Remedial programme.
