ABOUT DEPARTMENT

The Botany department was established in 1963 and the postgraduate courses were introduced in 1967. The department was granted permanent recognition for admitting students for M.Sc (by Research) and Ph. D. in 1968 and 1972 respectively. The University of Mumbai also had M. Phil program for four years and students were registered for the same. This is one of the first research centres of the college.  Today in the absence of University Department in the discipline of Botany the Department of Botany at the Ramniranjan Jhunjhunwala College enjoys a position second to none in Mumbai but all over Maharashtra.
