Department of Economics
Since the inception of our college in the year 1962, the Department of Economics made its mark with its up and coming approach to the teaching of Economics at the degree as well as Pre-university course level.

Since then, there is no looking back for the department in its academic achievements and goal setting approach. This has been amply reflected in the burgeoning number of students from year to year, ever since its inception under the aegis of Professor A. Chandra Mouli.

Planning Forum
The Department conducts number of interactive discussions in the subject by way of conducting number of essay writing and elocution competitions. Planning forum was started in the year 1964 on the advice of the S.V. University Authorities, with the sole aim of involving the students at the college level to think, discuss and to analyze the contemporary economic issues and their impact on the General Public in general and the student community in particular. Some of the essays by the students were rewarded by the planning forum. We are happy to inform that our college is one of the few designated colleges in the country to conduct “A. D. SHROFF MEMORIAL ELOCUTION COMPETITIONS” every year under the auspices of Forum of Free Enterprise, Mumbai.
Activities
We have one of the biggest market yards in Andhra Pradesh. Adoni is the business hub of Rayalaseema particularly in the field of commercial crops like Cotton, Groundnut and Sunflower. Villagers from the surrounding districts and even from Karnataka come to Adoni Market yard for sales and purchase operations.
So the department felt that it would be good idea to conduct some surveys by our students in the market yard. This was a multi purpose operation. It was meant to expose the students to the market structure and also develop in them the necessary aptitude and skills for their future research projects after they complete their P.G. courses. This was a resounding success.
