The Department of Economics is amongst the elder of the Departments in the college and it has made a qualitative contribution to research and Under Graduate education in economics since its initiation. The college imparts teachings in economics since its inception (i.e. 1963). In the academic session of 1973-74, the college started teaching in economics honors classes for the students. Over the years the Department has evolved to define economics in different ways keeping in tune with the regional, national and international developments. The Department of economics creates a stimulating environment for the academic growth of its students. The faculty members are known for their expertise in finance, development, behavioural and mathematical economics and impart practical knowledge on the subjects.
