Teaching of Botany and Zoology separately at Undergraduate level was start in 1962. The Department of Botany progressed under the dynamic leadership of Dr. R.P. Shivhare followed by Prof. Vijay Shankar and Prof. P. Kaushik. However, there was no Post Graduate course neither in Botany nor in Zoology Department. Therefore, both the Department independently submitted proposals to University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi to start Postgraduate courses in the above two subjects. In 1984, a high power Committee of VI Plan of the UGC visited the University. Instead of recommending M.Sc. Botany and Zoology subjects, the UGC Committee recommended to start M.Sc. Microbiology by involving the faculties of these two Departments.
