"Mukham Vyākaraṅam Smṛtam"
Grammar is an essence and soul of any language in the solution to all the problems related to the languages. A language can be well defined only with help of grammar. The Sanskrit Grammar is the synonym of Maharshi Panini, Maharshi Patanjali and Achrya Katyayana and is unanimously accepted by the learned galaxy.
The Sanskrit Grammar is mainly divided in to two parts i.e. Prachin Vyakrana and Navya Vyakarana. In our university Department of Vyakarana has both streams. The Stream of Prchin Vyakarana consists of Padchheda, Anuvritti, Padkritya etc. that deals with every minute aspect of the subject including with the justifications. It immensely emphasis on the teaching of the great book (Grantha) Ashtadhyayi of Acharya Panini and Mahabhashya of Acharya Patanjali for the students of graduation and post-graduation.
In the stream of Navya Vyakarana books like Vaiyakarana Siddhant Kaumudi, Laghushabdendushekhara, Praudh Manorma, Paribhashendushekhara etc. are included for the Methodology of the subject. For knowledge of Philosophical Grammar books like Vaiyakaranbhushansara, Vakyapadiya , Paramlaghu Manjusha etc. are subscribed in the syllabus for the knowledge enhancement of the students.

Several students who are keen in pursuing Research work in the field of grammar are doing their Ph.D. and M.Phil. courses under the guidance and supervision of the teachers in the department.

Therefore various training programmes and seminars based on research methodology are organised by the Department to support researchers to prepare their research article and present and publish them.
Apart from the above activities the department of Vyakarana has established Vyakaran Parishad for the all-round development and better growth of the students in this Parishad regular seminars, workshops, debates, Shlok gaana, essay writing, Sutra Antyakshari, Sutra explanation competitions are conducted to enhance competency levels of the learners.
