The Department of Botany was established in the year 1979, under the leadership of Prof. Arunachalam, with Mr. Balakirshnan as demonstrator. He and other great teachers promoted love of plants and a spirit of inquiry that are still the highlights of this Department. Those who studied here are now shaping the teaching of botany in schools, colleges, and universities.
