History of Department

History of the department

The four member department is 60 years old! It caters to students in the Commerce and Social science streams and offers a full majors programme in the final year of BA only to the best. A vibrant Economics Association of the Department funded and managed by past and present students has just completed twelve years of existence. It organises inter class seminars, book reviews, film shows, talks and lectures by scholars, industry experts, bankers, ex students, and participates in inter College Festivals . Its 12 credit based Honours programme is offered to diligent students of the social science stream and induces them to go well beyond course work. We have never had a failure in the graduating year and more than 60% of our students graduate with a first class.

The Department of Economics is as old as the college which was established in 1948. It is a four member department. The department has been catering to students in the Commerce stream along with the Humanities stream since 1980. The first head of the department was Mr. Gajra followed by Mrs. Maya Mirapuri, Dr. Harver and now Mrs. Adarsh Suri. We have never had a failure in the graduating year and almost 80% or more of our students have been graduating with a first class.
