The Department of Economics, since its inception, has been functioning diligently to ensure academic excellence and intellectual growth of its students. The Department lays primary focus on academics interspersed with extra-curricular activities designed to bring forth versatility and sound perspective of students.
Students of B.A (Hons) Economics have consistently given noteworthy academic performance in the semester examinations. Most of our students opt for higher studies and take admissions in highly reputed educational institutions like IIMs, Delhi School of Economics, etc. Many alumni of the Department have also taken up faculty positions in the University of Delhi. The Department has also been fortunate to have students who have become civil servants and members of armed forces, rendering their valuable services to the nation.
Meritorious students of the Department of Economics are awarded the merit-cum-means based scholarship “P.C. Ganguly Memorial Scholarship”. This scholarship was instituted in 2004 and is awarded to three students every year. A sum of Rs. 3000/- is awarded to one student of economics selected from each batch of B.A. (Hons) Economics, and B.A. Programme combined. The scholarship is awarded to the student by evaluation of a written essay, academic result, per capita income of the family, and the overall performance of the student in that particular session.
