v STRENGTH:- The faculty in charge  of the of department is an excellent scholar having a PhD. Degree besides this . The college library very rich in Odia literature.

v WEAKNESS:- The department does not have honours subject. Relatively students of low rank opt Odia as core subject. Since the students interact in local dialect its becomes difficult for them  to write and speak in Odia opportunity.

v OPPORTUNITY:- In the meant time ,Odia has got the classical language status. Also the Govt. of Odisha plans to introduce Odia as official language. Hence Odia language will have better prospect in near future.

v CHALLENGES:- There is an urgent need to open honours in the department. Also recruitment of additional faculty is needed. In view of the forth coming changes in language mileu of the state, there is a need to bring about changes in the students mind-set. They need to be thought grammar, vocabulary and writing skill.
