THE DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS
The Department of Economics of Ramjas College is one of the most eminent economics departments in the country. With some of the finest teachers, the Department works towards developing an in-depth understanding of the subjects and encouraging critical thinking over rote learning. The immensely reputable South Asian Economics Students Meet (SAESM) was conceptualized by this department. Every year the department organises talks, panel discussions, grants research scholarships, conducts paper presentation competitions that hold a distinct identity across the university.
ABOUT THE JOURNAL
Ramjas Economic Review is a peer–reviewed academic journal for undergraduate students to showcase their research pertaining to the discipline of economics. Our mission is to provide a channel through which students can publish their scholarly findings to share with the research community at large. Though we are largely an undergraduate-run publication, we work under the guidance of the faculty of University of Delhi, especially during the peer review process.
ABOUT THE COLLEGE
Ramjas College is one of India’s most prestigious co-educational college. It is one of the first three constituent colleges of University of Delhi along with St. Stephen's College and Hindu College. Inaugurated by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, it is the only college in India to have Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar as the Chairman of its Governing Body. The college recently commemorated the 100th anniversary of its foundation, and time has failed in diminishing its legacy.
TRIBUTE TO PROFESSOR DEB KUSUM DAS
The Department of Economics, Ramjas College grieves the loss of Professor Deb Kusum Das, a cheerful and valiant personality, with immense love for Economic theories and concepts.
