Commerce (Arts Section)

This year was very fruitful for the Commerce department. It was beneficial for both the students as well as the teachers.

Social Work by the Department:

The department held several programs under the department centric Social Involvement Programme (SIP). The students had a skill development programme wherein 14 students participated in ‘Rakhi making’ and the funds generated were donated to an NGO – Indian Development Foundation (IDF). A few students also helped the same NGO in distribution of sanitary napkins for the under-privileged. A new approach to academics was adopted under the buddy system; wherein the students with a background in commerce were teaching non-commerce students few topics of book keeping and accountancy.
