After the partition of the country, the teaching of Economics in this University was centered in Government College, Hoshiarpur under the guidance of Professor K K Dewett. His hands were strengthened by the appointment of Professor S B Rangnekar in 1951. The Economics programme is offered at the Panjab University.


Key facts:

  • The Economics programme is offered at the Panjab University.
  • With such a competent faculty, the department, as always, continues to be a leading center for training in Economics in the entire North-West region. This fact has been amply borne out by the success rate of its alumni in various competitive examinations and academic institutes both within the country and abroad.
