Departmental Issues

  • Teaching methods adopted

Regular interactions in scheduled classes are principle method of teaching. Students are provided with reference photocopies, notes and soft copies pertaining to their curriculum. Teachers help to solve model questions and numerical problems from text and reference books and university question papers in the classes. Sometimes solutions are also provided for ready references. Students in Economics Honours improve their understanding regarding subject through solving the home task provided by the teachers.  For interested students, database on economic performance indices and links of ‘Sodhaganga’ and ‘Sodhgangotri’ in NLIST-INFLIBNET are provided to improve their understanding on Indian Economy. Teaching based on interactive modes and regular question-answer session is found fruitful in our classes.

Besides this faculty members of this department organizes group teaching programme where students having specific problems get an opportunity to express their problems and in most cases it is addressed.
