- The Dept. of Veda exists since the establishment of this University. The Veda is an ancient text in the worldliterature. Veda as well as Vedic Culture is the inner soul of the country. Therefore India is called Jagadguru of the Universe. The Dept. of Veda works as the protector to save the ancient recitation of Veda and interpretation of Veda rituals.
- Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha are widely described in Vedas. Sadachara is also described as the root cause of the smooth life, upliftment of the universe, happiness and peacefulness etc. Non-existence of studying and teaching of Veda and not performing of vedic rituals are the only reason for the present polluted word.
Lack of forgiveness and helpfulness in the world kept the people away from the culture. To reestablish these vedic cultures we should study veda by which the universe will get more happiness.

The soul aim of the Veda Department is to sow these cultures and purified thought in the mind of the people. Availabilities of Infrastructure and Admission
