About Us

The Postgraduate Department of Geology, Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, Nagpur was established in 1946 and celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 2006. The Department imparts teaching leading to postgraduate degrees, i.e. M. Sc. Geology- Four Semester Credit Based System and M. Sc. (Tech) Applied Geology- Six Semester Credit Based System with intake capacity of 20 students for both courses and research guidance culminating into M. Phil. and Ph.D. degrees. The research work in the Department is being carried out in Petrology, Geochemistry, Applied Micropaleontology, Limnogeology, Hydrogeology, Petroleum Geology, Environmental Geology, etc. The infrastructure facilities, for both teaching and research, in the Department were boosted because of sanctioning of a) Rs. 45.00 lacs under FIST Level-I (Fund for Improvement of S & T Infrastructure) program of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India during 2000 to 2005 and Rs. 95. 00 lacs for a period from 2012 to 2017 and b) Rs. 40 lacs under SAP- DRS-1 (SAP: Special Assistance Program, DRS: Departmental Research Support) of University Grants Commission (UGC), Govt. of India for a period from 2010 to 2015. Prof. P. Kundal is heading the Project implementation Group of DST FIST and Prof. D. B. Malpe is working as the Co-ordinator for UGC DRS- SAP. The expert personnel of the Department have handled and successfully completed R & D projects sanctioned by funding agencies such as UGC, DST, DAE-BRNS, MoES, etc. The Department completed three major research projects (handled by Prof. P. Kundal, Prof. A. M. Pophare, Prof. D. B. Malpe, Dr. K. R. Randive and Dr. Bandana Samant). Presently five faculty members (Prof. D. B. Malpe, Dr. K. R. Randive, Dr. S. K. Humane, Dr. (Mrs.) Samaya S. Humane and Dr. (Mrs.) Bandana Samant) are carrying out research under five major research projects and three faculty members (Dr. H. S. Kale, Dr. Y. A. Murkute and Mr. B. S. Manjare) are handling three minor research projects. The faculty members of the Department regularly participate in the National and International seminars. It is noteworthy that 3 of the present faculty members, Prof. P. Kundal, Dr. Bandana Samant and Dr. S. K. Humane presented research papers at 11th International Symposium on Fossil Algae (Prof. Kundal chaired a scientific session at this international symposium) held at Cluj-Napoca, Romania during Sept. 2011; Paleo-Palynology, Bonn, Germany during Sept. 2008 and 4th International Congress on Environmental Micropaleontology at Isparta, Turkey in Sept. 2004 respectively. It is significant to mention here that Dr. K. R. Randive, faculty member of the Department participated in the 31st Indian Scientific Expedition to Antarctica as Member of the Summer 2011-12 Scientific Team organized by Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India, New Delhi. Many faculty members of the Department have number of edited research volumes (Prof. P. Kundal- 03; Prof. A. M. Pophare- 03, Prof. D. B. Malpe- 04; Dr. S. K. Humane- 01; Dr. H. S. Kale-02) to their credit and two faculty members, Dr. K. R. Randive and Dr. Y. A. Murkute have published a text cum reference book in English and Marathi respectively. All the faculty members of Department publish research papers in National and International Journals having high impact factor (Dr. Bandana Samant published a research paper in “Nature Communication” having impact factor 10). Nowadays, students of the Department are getting coveted jobs in organizations such as Geological Survey of India (GSI), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC), Central Ground Water Board (CGWB), Coal India Limited (CIL), Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL), Groundwater Survey and Development Agency (GSDA), Directorate of Geology and Mining (DGM) etc. The Alumni Association of the Department was constituted in July 2004 and registered with Charity Commissioner, Nagpur in 2007 (Reg. No. MAH/706/07 (N), dated 11 Dec. 2007). For overall development of the students of the Department, “Academic Forum” of students was formed during academic year i.e. 2000-2001 and since then “Academic Forum” has been organizing weekly seminars by students and special lectures (2-3 in a year) by renowned Geoscientists. The short term vision of the Department is to make the Department as one of the best departments in the country and the long term objective is to make the Department as one of the best centers of the Advanced Studies in Geology in the world.
