In a First, Banaras Hindu University (BHU) to Offer a Degree Course in Hinduism

The course will be conducted by the Department of Philosophy, while some courses will be taught by the Sanskrit department.

The two-year degree course has 40 seats, for which applications are invited from September 7. Admissions will be offered through an entrance exam which will be conducted on October 3.
