Welcome to DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE (Vidyasagar Evening College)

The journey of the Department of Commerce began with the establishment of Calcutta College of Commerce at 29 Mirzapur Street, in 1920 or thereabouts and was run by a College Council. Around 1922 the Vice-Principal of the college Sh J C Mitra expressed a desire for its amalgamation with Vidyasagar College which was considered and accepted by the Governing Body of the latter college in its Governing Body meeting dated October 18, 1922 wherein it was resolved that the classes will be held from 6 p.m in the evening. A formal amalgamation happened vide Memorandum of Agreement between the Calcutta College of Commerce and Vidyasagar College dated 14th November, 1922.

Finally in July 1928 when Commerce throughout the world was in doldrums owing to the Great depression, the University granted affiliation to the Commerce Departmentof Vidyasagar College in B.Com.

The Commerce Department was the first non-Government Night College in Commerce in Bengal.

The Commerce College was amalgamated with the General Department on January 1, 1929. In the same year Hariprasad Khandelwal, a student of the Commerce Department stood first in the B.Com Examination. Thus the fame of the department spread far and wide. The low tuition fees, efficient system of coaching, apart from the fact of its being a pioneer institution, attracted students from all parts of India including Burma.

The recommendation of the University Grants Commission to phased reduction in the Roll Strengths of the affiliated colleges was accepted by the University of Calcutta. The independence of the Evening Section was inevitable. In June 1961 the Evening Section along with the Commerce Department was re-christened as Vidyasagar Evening College.

The robust journey of the department continued and completed 75 years of existence in July 1997.
