In the light of Swami Vivekananda’s words on emancipation of women in India the university authorities in consultation with the Head Quarters, Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission decided to launch an exclusive wing for women in the Sanskrit programmes. Keeping with the guidelines and instructions of the Head Quarters, the women’s programme was inaugurated on 6th June 2016, at the Belur Main Campus. Swami Atmapriyananda Maharaj, VC of the university inaugurated the programme.
The Women’s wing, named Maitreyi group, is located at the Belur Main Campus and offers Integrated 5 Year MA in Sanskrit (Honours) programme. Classes are held separately for the women’s wing. Course structure for the Integrated 5 Year MA programme remains almost same as the one for Men.
