Acharya Narendra Dev College, New Delhi Infrastructure Details


The college is among the best in the University as far as the laboratory infrastructure is concerned - and as a 'science' college this is of paramount importance. We have state-of-the-art equipments that are used for regular teaching as well as for projects by students and teachers. They are sufficient (and more) number to ensure that each student gets hand-on learning experience in the laboratories.  

Some of the equipments that have attracted attention include UV spectrophotometers, Physiological Data acquisition system (Bio-pack), Fluorescence microscope, ELISA reader, Refrigerated microfuge,  Lyophilizer, Gel Documentation system, Phase contrast microscope, Dot-blot system with vacuum pump, Refrigerated incubator shaker, -20 C Deep Freezer, Gel Electrophoresis (horizontal/vertical), Western Blot, Spirometers, Tissue culture facility, Millipore water purifier, PCR and gradient PCR, Arbitrary Function Generator, Fiber Optic Trainer, Computer based HALL Effect Setup, Amplitude Mod/Demod. Trainer with Spectrum Analyzer, PCB Drafting & Fabrication Setup and Laser Trainer Kits. 

These equipments are used to provide hands-on training to the students who therefore get an opportunity to correlate some of the things taught in their theory classes. Operating these instruments they embark on a steep learning curve as they get to appreciate finer points of research. They are also used by faculty for research.      

Since 2008, when a Supreme Court decision required that seats be increased in colleges to accommodate OBC reservation, the college was forced to construct four port-a-cabins for classrooms.  Two large laboratories were also constructed as laboratories for students of Life Sciences and Physical Sciences. 

In order to satisfy the ever increasing power requirement due to the teaching laboratories and expanding infrastructure, the college has taken the initiative to boost the electrical load from a mere 58 KVA to a whopping 200 KVA making it future-ready.  A new block to house the electric sub-station exclusively for the college coupled with a new H. T. Transformer has already been constructed.   

In association with the National Mission for Bamboo Applications, we have constructed a new canteen block with eco-friendly furniture - the three canteen structures house the kitchen, the student hall and a faculty room. 

The session 2011 was special due to the fully airconditioned Library being available to students.  The large reading room, the excellent Wen Centre and the spaces for teachers and Reserach Scholars makes the Library really special. 

The new Chemistry laboratory have also made practicals in the Chemistry Department much better spaced.  We have also another 125 KW Generator to the one we had.  So power cuts in college are a thing of the past.


Being primarily a 'Science College' we need to invest a lot in developing our science laboratories.  Each department in the college has well equipped laboratories that are amongst the best at undergraduate level amongst the colleges of University of Delhi. Integrated across, its recently refurnished departmental laboratories and the central instrumentation facilities provide extensive and contemporary facilities for science teaching and research.  Some of the equipments that we have in the college laboratories include:

The College library that is housed in a spacious hall has more than 26,170 books apart from various journals and periodicals. The library is computerized and all books are bar-coded, which makes its operation smooth and friendly.  The library uses the LibSys software that allows students to have information literally on their finger tips through OPAC - Online Public Access Catalogue.

The College is also connected to the University Library system through the University-wide network. This provides access to students to journals and other materials to which the University subscribes; several library books are also uploaded on the University server.

Students of all courses can issue upto four books for a period of 15 days. Similarly post graduate students are allowed upto 5 books for a month. The college facilitates the students of economically weaker section by issuing them 5 books for the whole semester from book bank section.

To provide an opportunity for students and teachers to make a relaxed selection of books for their personal use and for recommending for purchase for the library, an annual books exhibition is held every year over 2-3 days in September.
