It has earned a high level of National and International reputation. The academic achievements of SoS in Physics & Astrophysics could very well be adjudged in terms of publications in research journals of International/ National repute, students alumni holding prestigious/ distinctive positions at various International/ National arena. It has been accorded Center of Excellence (1987-1992) by M.P Uchcha Shiksha Anudan Ayog, Bhopal. SoS in Physics & Astrophysics, besides obtaining substantial financial grants from different National funding agencies through research proposals submitted by individual faculty member, was awarded DST fund under FIST program.
