            The year 2010 was a landmark in the history of our Department because in that year the “Business Laboratory” was inaugurated for the exclusive benefit of the students pursuing Commerce course. This Laboratory is well equipped with the desktop computers with latest configuration. The dedicated faculty of the department identifies every promising students and help in boosting their confidence and competence by conducting extra classes, special coaching and tests. Similarly, the slow learners are also identified by the respective staff dealing with the subject and taken care of by tutorials and special remedial classes. This is evident in the form of mentoring system in practice in the College.

            The Commerce Department celebrated its Silver Jubilee in the year 2004 though started in 1979 as an un-aided course an admitted to the Grant-in-Aid by the Government of Karnataka in 1984. Many teachers served in this Department on permanent and temporary basis. Dr.S.Jayanna and Dr.K.Tejas Murthy joined as a founder staff of the department. Dr.S.Jayanna later on elevated to the P.G.
