The teaching of geography at the Banaras Hindu University was initiated at Intermediate level in 1944 in the Department of Geology under chairmanship of late Prof. Rajnath. An independent and full-fledged Department of Geography was, however, created on 19 August 1946 [Monday, Bhadrapad Krishna 7th Samvata 2003, Janmasthmi] with late Prof. Harbans Lal Chhibber [1899-1955] as its first Head. During Prof. Chhibber’s regime (1946-1955) late Dr. Ram Lochan Singh [1917-2001], late Phanishwar Kumar Dutt, and Dr. Parmeshwar Dayal (b: 15 Aug. 1920–, later shifted to Patna University, and lives there). Late Mr. N. Leiter, Dr. Shanti Lal Kayastha, Dr. Anand Swaroop Jauhari and late Dr. Ujagir Singh joined the University Department later, while Smt. Bibha Mukherjee and Dr. Nawal Kishore Pd. Sinha joined the Department in Mahila Mahavidyalaya and Central Hindu College, Kamachcha, respectively.
