A Profile of the Department

The Department of Economics, Charuchandra College, was a brainchild of Dr. S. N. Ray, the first Principal of this college. He was a D. Lit., from Oxford University. As he was well conversant with international academic atmosphere, he realized the important role that students of economics would play in the understanding of the political economy of India. With this objective he introduced both Economics Honours and General Courses simultaneously in 1st October 1947. This department has always been lucky to be associated with scholars and illustrious teachers.
