The Department is established from the Year of inception of the College. Sanskrit is a classical language and much of our ancient culture, science, knowledge and philosophy are preserved in this language only. The world looks up to us because of this knowledge. This language is a symbol of the great Indian tradition and thought. It is, therefore, one of the most cherished aims of ARSD College to work for the propagation and dissemination of this language among the new generation learners through whom the ancient legacy can be well-looked-after. The department organizes Sanskrit quiz, debate and shloka singing competitions to further enrich the teaching-learning process.
