    The Department is not autonomous and therefore syllabus framing is not within the purview of the College. The University of Pune dictates the changes in syllabus. The new syllabus for English is being introduced in a phased manner. 2008-09 saw a change in the syllabus for FYBA. The next two years will see a change in SYBA and TYBA syllabus.
