University Malis

The green spaces of the University are managed by the Garden Committee which is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor and a member secretary who is always a professor from the world-famous Department of Botany. All university gardens are nurtured by 'malis', skilled 'malis' and 'Chaudhuris'. The entire work is supervised by one horticulturist. The Garden Secretary oversees the smooth functioning and activities of the gardens. The Garden committee office maintains nurseries. The nursery holds stocks of ornamental perennials which are used for teaching purposes, annuals that produce flowers at different seasons, and various kinds of foliage plants.
