Since the A. P. S. University had no teaching department in such important social science disciplines as Economics, Political Science and Sociology and the facilities for research in the affiliated colleges, where these subjects are taught up to the Post-graduate level, were inadequate and unsatisfactory, there had been a demand for a long time for the establishment of a research centre in social sciences in the University. The Faculty of Social Sciences of the University, therefore, under the chairmanship of the then Dean Prof. Lal Amarendra Singh, passed a resolution on 28th April, 1987, recommending to the University the establishment of a Regional Centre for Policy Research.
