The activities of the Department include Grama Vikas Kendra, Personality Development Centre, projects and surveys, various short term weekend courses as well as extension activities.

All the academic and extension programmes of the Department are carried out strictly in accordance with University Regulations and UGC Guidelines for Departments of Lifelong Learning and Extension.
