Economics Department

A brief history of the Department

Economics as a discipline evolved from what was once called “political economy” in the days of Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill. The study of economics within the discipline of civics was sustained till a separate discipline was formed in the early 20th century. Economics as a subject of study in B.A. (General) was started in 1919 and in 1948 permission was accorded for introduction of B.A. (Economics Honours) Course.
