HOD's Message

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome all those students who have opted economics as one of their subjects at undergraduate level. This is an interesting subject practised in our daily life and having significant potential in vast areas. Besides career in teaching, the subject is having job potential in areas likebanking, insurance, hotel management, tourism, finance, marketing, planning etc. It will be a great service if we are provided an opportunity to share our knowledge and understanding of the subject so that more human resource is developed . We at the Department of Economics, GDC Tral welcome the dedicated and hardworking students to be a part of our group. We aspire to groom the students in such a manner that on leaving the college they are better ready and well equipped to face any professional / national level competition
