The past heads with their tireless efforts helped the department to reach at a distingused position. The past heads were Late Prof. Shyamal Dasmal, Late Prof. Shyamal Maiti.
Upto the year 2020, we used to go to the filed work with the students of the part III Honours students to survey on different Folk Arts like Oyster Art, Hawser Art, Kantha Art, Pot Art, Art of Doll made of mud etc. It increased the relation among the students and the teachers no doubt.
