Principal’s Message


You are indeed blessed to find an opportunity to get science education at one of the best colleges of India, i.e., Govt. Science College, Jabalpur (Old Robertson College), which has been nurtured and benefitted by the great Acharya of this division. In ancient India JABALPUR was JABALIPURAM, after the name of Rishi JABALI, the Great Philosopher “Osho’s” and Maharshi “Mahesh Yogi’s” divine and celestial vision. The college has the privilege of having healthy, harmonious ambience, rich in shaping the future of innumerable students.

I, Dr. A. L. Mahobia, as a head of the institution (Principal) feel immense pleasure to welcome all the students of Under Graduate, Post Graduate courses and Research Streams to the academic year 2018-19. It is a matter of pride that the college has been granted “A” Grade in NAAC accreditation in 2002 and 2011 continuously. The achievement has burgeoned recently in July 2018 with the award of the Institute of Excellence by Chief Minister, Govt. of M.P. This could be possible only by dedicated and hard working staff and students of the college.

With proud legacy of 182 years since the establishment of the College in 1836, the College has excelled in every field. I feel great proud that this is the only College in entire Madhya Pradesh and among 19 colleges in India achieving Special Heritage Status by UGC, New Delhi in 2015.

We have a large pool of energetic and highly experienced faculty members to educate young minds, conducting innovative research at National and International levels. Our institution occupies an exceptional position at National level providing modern techniques and equipments for quality research works. The college has well furnished Vikram Boys Hostel and Subhadra Girls Hostel and maintained by providing good and homely facilities to our students. Various committees like discipline, cultural, literacy, creative art, sports and also NCC and NSS units boost the students to excel and develop their overall personality.

Many students have registered their presence in inter university competitions in different fields and won the prizes. The College has its own glorious history that many students are selected every year. The entrepreneur/ employment cell, internal quality assessment cell and Vivekananda Carrier guidance cell in the College are always active to hype up the moral, physical and mental growth of the college students.

Twenty nine Gold Medals have been established in the college, which exemplify its glorious prestige to honour the academic excellence of our students.

Be steady in your studies. Learn to enjoy hard work particularly your studies. Think wisely, think systematically. Always prepare yourself for next day’s lesson. Be very serious and attentive in class.

Preserve our heritage and environment to yourself as well as for your next generation. Hard work, dedication and perseverance are the most important traits in a person that are needed to succeed. The future belong to you, you need therefore to prepare yourself for the active participation in the world. The participation demands that you become well informed and hence develop yourself like a pioneer and ultimately grow as responsible men and women. I intently believe that you would develop versatile personality during your stay in this temple of learning.

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future”. Remember “The reward of every good action will be good only”.

Wishing you all Good Luck

Dr. A. L. Mahobia
