Department of Economics

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 location of the department was shifted to the Chandigarh Campus in 1958 and it continues to be a leading center of teaching, research and learning of economics in the region.

The department has the honour of having produced many well-known economists like Dr. Manmohan Singh (Prime Minister of India), Late Dr. G.K. Chadha ( former member Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council and former Vice-Chancellor, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi ) and Dr. B S Minhas.
