    The department of Economics was started in June 1974 as a core subject in human sciences and to study economics aspects of human life and society. As most of the students come from typical rural background, economics is a subject of enthusiasm and knowledge for them. Hence the number of enrollment of students increased thereafter. In June 1973 only 22 students had opted for economics at special level, the number increased to 160 students in the year 2016-2017. Similarly economics stood compulsory subject for the students of commerce faculty. As a result the number of teachers in the department also increased from 3 in 1972 to 7 in 2017.
