How to Reach the Department

The Department of Anthropology and Tribal Studies (DATS) functions under the aegis of Central University of Jharkhand, which is located at Cheri-Manatu, a locality situated about 17 kms from Ranchi (the capital of Jharkhand, India).

During your travel, you will move away from the rushes of Ranchi township in about 15-20 minutes and would soon be plying on National Highway-75 (Ratu-Lohardaga Highway). After travelling for about 10 kms, you will reach the Ring Road Over Bridge (also known as Tilta Chowk). Take right and move on the Ring Road for about 7 kms.

Ask nearby people, they will guide you to the University campus. At the entrance gate, ask the security people. They will direct you to the Department.
