Department Of Marathi

Marathi Language Literature is being taught since 1930. The P.G. course was introduced in 1977. Previously Marathi section was under the Department of Indian Languages. A separate full-fledged Department was established in 1982. It is the only Department in the whole of Northern India where M.A. courses are being taught and research is being done.
