Department of commerce was established in 1971. Gradually the department expanded in strength of students and courses. The autonomy gave extensive freedom to the enthusiastic faculty members who were young with bubbling innovative ideas. With their initiative, several new courses were introduced breaking the tradition of five decades old subjects and syllabus.
It is very interesting to note that the course structure of 4+4+7 subjects with Quantitative techniques, Business Communication, Managements of Small Scale Industries, Taxation, Merchant Banking etc were introduced during 1987 to 95 and surprisingly the same structure and papers were introduced by the common core commerce course structure of Andhra Pradesh, after 13 years of our attempt.
