About College Brief History
Early in the year 1920, on Basant Panchami day, seven leading businessmen in Delhi established the Commercial Education Trust. The first school that was set up by the Trust in the same year was the Commercial School, and then located in Charkhewalan in the crowded walled city of Delhi. This was the predecessor of the Commercial College and in a way the beginning of commerce education in Delhi.
Commerce education in India began in 1886, for in that year a commercial school was set up in Madras. Commercial institutions were also started in Bombay and Calcutta between 1903 and 1912. At the Collegiate level or the University level the journey began with the establishment of the Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics in Bombay in 1913.

The Commercial School in Delhi introduced a post-matriculation Diploma programme in Commerce under the supervision of Mr. R.K. Kumar, who later was to become the first Principal of the Commercial College (later rechristened as Shri Ram College of Commerce), after its affiliation to the University of Delhi in 1926.
The Commercial College heralded the entry of Commerce education in the university system of Delhi. The initial funds for setting up of the College came from the Dewan Chand Trust. The University accorded recognition to the College for preparing students for its Intermediate Examination (Commerce Group). Enrolment of the first batch of students was made on the first floor of a �Hall� opposite the St. James� Church at Kashmere Gate. Classes started with 12 students and four faculty members from a hired bungalow at 8, Darya Ganj, New Delhi.
In 1932, the College was upgraded to the status of a Degree College and started awarding its graduates the B.A. (Pass) (Commerce Group) Degrees of the University. The B.A. (Honours) (Commerce Group) Degrees were introduced in 1943. Closely on its heels, the same year saw the entry of M.A. (Economics), and in 1948 M.Com was introduced. In 1949, when the B.Com (Honours) Degree was instituted in the University of Delhi, teaching the course seemed to be natural task of the College. The B.A. (Honours) Economics was introduced in 1958.
In 1951, on its Silver Jubilee, the College decided to convert itself into a College specialising in Commerce and Economics, and also gave itself the present name in recognition of the contribution made by its founder � Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC).
The College Building
SRCC shifted to its new building in the sprawling Delhi University Campus in 1954. The new building was inaugurated by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, Hon�ble Vice President of India, on January 31, 1954. The guidance of Sir Shri Ram and the perseverance of the then Principal Jai Narain Vaish provided a well-endowed building spread over a campus of 16 acres. With a circular fa�ade incorporating the lecture rooms on two floors, a central Clock Tower, tutorial and library blocks flanking the main building, separate students� hostel, canteen, common room, staff residences, the College was created to encompass the whole range of institutional requirements. In 2006-07 the government of NCT Delhi accorded Heritage Status to the College Building.
The College became co-educational in 1957 although it had admitted a lone girl student way back in 1933. SRCC later became the first College in the University to set up a Girls� Hostel in a non-exclusively women�s college. A new 100 seater girls Hostel has been recently sanctioned by the UGC.
The Search for Excellence
SRCC has developed itself over the years and retains its prestigious position as the foremost of institutions dedicated to Commerce and Economics education in the country. Its Alumni occupy distinguished positions in almost all spheres of society, government, bureaucracy, banking, finance, academics, business, journalism and media. It has been a long journey through the seventy-five years and yet the journey has perhaps just begun. If Commerce education was a felt need in pre-independent India so that the indigenous human resources could be tapped in the midst of the colonial yoke, 75 years later, Commerce education is an extremely relevant one, considering the march towards a globalised and liberalised economy.
The College has practiced a policy of self-renewal all along and when the time came to reinvent itself in the context of the changing scenario; it has upgraded itself with the introduction of a post-graduate, two-year full time programme in Global Business Operations of the University of Delhi in 1999.
Shri Ram College of Commerce continues to remain a dream destination and then a springboard to great achievements for many a youngster of our country.
The College has on its faculty highly qualified academicians and attracts the very best of students from all over the country and abroad. SRCC enjoys a prestigious position and after graduating from here many students are readily admitted in renowned foreign universities. Students enjoy a distinct advantage in the matter of employment in reputed organisations and a good number of them are offered positions, through campus recruitment, even before their results are declared.
The alumni of the College are well placed in the fields of banking and finance, general management, civil services and academics. Many are successfully managing their own business establishments or are reputed chartered accountants.
SRCC students have been performing remarkably well in all spheres of life. They have won the prestigious Rhodes scholarship to Oxford, topped the CA and civil services examinations and have been consistently getting selected in the best British and American Universities.

Shri Ram College of Commerce cutoff will not touch 100% this year

NEW DELHI: There will be no 100% cutoff this year at Shri Ram College of Commerce. The college has decided to change its cutoff formula for both the BCom (H) and BA economics (H) programmes in a way that the cutoffs will not touch the 100% mark. Last year, the cutoffs for category E aspirants (without any commerce subjects in best of four in Class XII) touched a record high of 100% for the BCom (H) programme.

Moreover, the new cutoff formula will also make it more challenging for aspirants from science and humanities stream to join the economics (H) course.

With teachers busy in polls, DU students join Annas movement

New Delhi: All roads led to Ramlila Maidan on Thursday for many students of Delhi University (DU) who did not have to miss their classes as their teachers were busy with the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) elections.

Students thronged the Ramlila Maidan that has been the venue of the fast against corruption by activist Anna Hazare.

Entire university is busy with teachers elections. It wont be fair to say that we are missing classes to support Anna Hazareji, Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) student Pragati Dua told IANS.

While the students and teachers have been at loggerheads for missing studies to support the cause, DU students had a different take on the issue.When the teachers go on strike, why dont they talk about studies being missed. Now it is about a cause - corruption. It should not be criticised, Gargi College student Anumeha Das said.On day 10 of his fast, the anti-corruption crusader adamantly refused to be taken to hospital or be administered saline until his demands for a stronger Lokpal Bill were met.

We have not missed any class for the last 10 days. Today, when the elections are on, we decided that we will come to Ramlila Maidan from early morning, said Parag Malhotra, a second year commerce student of Hansraj College.

High cut-off marks is due to demand-supply mismatch: Sibal

The controversial 100 per cent cut-off marks this year for admission in certain streams in Delhi University is due to the demand-supply dynamics and a solution to this lay only in expanding the educational infrastructure, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal has said.

If the demand is much greater than supply, then the cut-off will go high automatically. It s an institutional issue, he said here.

If there is one Sri Ram College of Commerce and everybody wants admission there, what solution can I have? he asked.

Sibal, who had earlier termed the high cut-off as irrational , said a solution to the problem lies in expanding the educational infrastructure across the country.

Government cannot set up all the education institutions, universities and colleges. So, the private sector must play an important role in the years to come and we want expansion of private sector in education sector, he added.

The high cut-off marks, including 100 per cent in Sri Ram College of Commerce, one of Delhi University s famous colleges, for admission this year had triggered a major row last month with a majority of students and parents coming out against such a yardstick.

Stating that fixing the cut-off at 100 per cent for non-Commerce students is also a reflection of the prevailing education system based on discipline, Sibal stressed on reforming the system.

Sibal said: We must change this concept of a commerce steam, an arts and a science stream, because it suggests a science student should only do science and not history.

When mind has no boundaries, why knowledge should have boundaries? Once we get rid of these boundaries and expand the education sector, some of these problems will be gone, he said.

Asked what steps the government is taking to fill OBC seats amid reports of a large number of them going vacant and subsequently transfered to general pool, the Minister said we have given a directive that none of the seats will go the general category .

He said the Ministry will ensure that 27 per cent OBC quota is filled up. We have also said if the marks are less than 10 per cent (the relaxation limit), you go below the 10 per cent.

Elaborating on the issue, he said the Supreme Court order did not lay any rigid limit for relaxation of percentage for OBC category.

If you get 100 per cent and for OBC category it becomes 90 per cent, the guy with 89 per cent cannot get in. That would be a very unfair interpretation of the Supreme Court judgement because the Supreme Court did not imagine this kind of scenario, he said.

Students protest high cut-off at SRCC

New Delhi: Holding placards and raising slogans, many Delhi University (DU) students led by a students outfit with political affiliation protested the high cut-offs announced by Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC).
The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh marched from the arts faculty to the college but were not allowed to meet its principal, said an ABVP spokesperson.

In its first cut-off list June 15, SRCC fixed the cut-off for the B.Com (Honours) course at 100 percent for aspirants from non-commerce streams.

There were around a hundred of us and we wanted to meet the principal but he did not bother to meet us. The high cut-offs are discouraging the students, ABVP spokesperson Rohit Chahal told.We fear that other colleges will follow suit the next time, making the admission process an absolute harassment for students and their parents, he added.

According to Chahal, the university should first have enough colleges to support the high number of applicants.
Students are not getting admissions easily and on top of it, the cut-offs are so high, added Chahal.

Chandigarh s GCCBACHD aims to beat SRCC as No.1 commerce college

Chandigarh: Delhi s Sri Ram College of Commerce stamped its authority as the number one college in north India by declaring its cut-off at 100 per cent recently. But the Delhi College might face some stiff competition from Chandigarh s Government College of Commerce and Business Administration in Sector – 42 very soon.

Apart from SRCC, it is only the second college in the region that caters exclusively to courses in commerce.

The college administration aims to make Government College of Commerce and Business Administration the best commerce college in north India. Only the best educationalists are being picked as faculty by the college which seeks to provide quality education.

The college offers courses in e-commerce, business finance and accounting along with B.Com and is said to have state-of-the-art infrastructure.

The Government College of Commerce and Business Administration was started in October 2006. It started in Sector -19 but was shifted to Sector –42 a year later. The new campus of the college is being constructed in Sector – 50 and it s likely to be ready within the next two years.

DU admissions: Kapil Sibal, SRCC management at loggerheads over 100 percent cut-off

New Delhi: The controversy surrounding 100 percent cutoff requirement for admission in one of Delhi Universitys most reputed colleges intensified on Wednesday with the Union Human Resource Development minister Kapil Sibal calling the cut-off irrational.

Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has kept its cut-off for B Com (Honours) for general category at 100 per cent and for the OBC category is 98 per cent.Talking to media persons in Delhi today, Sibal said that right to admission can not be denied, adding that the 100 percent cut-off was irrational.However, SRCC principal PC Jain justified the college administrations decision over the cutoff eligibility saying the college has been following the practice for the last 20 years.
Jain said the cut off is decided by the performance of students and not by the principal of the college. He added that students will get chance for admission in SRCC as the second and third cut -ff list is yet to come out.Jain said he has requested the Delhi University (DU) Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh to take note of the development.

Meanwhile, taking a safe stand over the controversy, Singh clarified that the first cut off list is always cautious.Candidates who meet the criteria according to the first cutoff lists will be given four days to seek admission at the colleges. The second cutoff list will be announced by DU on June 21.Students wanting to take admission in SRCC and other reputed colleges of the DU are also baffled by the 100 percent cut-off.

I have got an aggregate of 98 percent which, everyone told me, was a good percentage to get into any college. But 100 percent is just impossible! said Ashima Sharma, a student who wants to pursue B.Com (Honours) from SRCC. (With inputs from agencies)

DU aspirants await respite in 2nd list after sky-high first cut-off

New Delhi: Finally, the most awaited time of the year has arrived for the Delhi University aspirants with the first cut-off list declared on Wednesday. And call it a shock or a premonition but colleges this year have sky-high cut-offs. Gone are the days when the south campus college had lesser cut-offs than the main campus colleges. Lady Shri Ram College has a whopping cut-off of a 97 % for B Com honours. The much-debated 100% cut-off in SRCC (Sri Ram College of Commerce) seems to be an endeavor to demarcate between a commerce student and a science student, which means while a commerce student has his cut-off at a 96% for the much coveted B.Com (Honours) course, for a science student his percentage needs to be no less than 100 %.
Even second option universities such as ARSD (Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma ) college has hit a percentage ladder of 90 % in B.Com, indicating that this year the percentage grip has happened only to skim in the students belonging to the respective streams.

In English Honours, 11,000 students appeared for the CATE, the common entrance exams on the June 5, organised by 21 colleges. After checking the objective part of the test 600 to 700 students were selected, as declared on June 14. Students nation wide have a very strong reaction this session, some want to go abroad and many are not considering Delhi University this year. Who is the university to choose on my behalf and why should the other stream people suffer even after getting more than decent marks says Devashish, a student of S.T Marys, Meerut.

Finally the conclusion would be the few students who made it to the first list its great news, but for majority of those who couldnt make it, the second list might provide some respite

DU cutoffs for you: B.Com (Hons) in SRCC? You need 100% in Class XII

Delhi: A day before the first cutoff list is to be announced by the colleges under Delhi University, some have uploaded their criteria list on their website. And even those who were expecting sky-high cutoff percentages would be surprised.

SRCC (Sri Ram College of Commerce) has kept its cutoff for B.Com (Honours) for general category at 100 per cent and for the OBC category is 98 per cent.

The cutoff percentage for the general category for BA (Honours) Economics at SRCC is as high as 98.25% and for OBC category, the cutoff percentage is 96.25 per cent.However, it must be noted that the first list seems nothing more than a word of caution.

Hope still remains for the candidates who have failed to score such marks as the second cut off list will surely accommodate a few of them.

The cutoff lists for other colleges such as Sri Venkateswara, Ram Jas and Kirori Mal also have similar figures to reveal.

The cutoffs of other Delhi University colleges are likely to be announced by Wednesday.

Candidates who meet the criteria according to the first cutoff lists will be given four days to seek admission at the colleges. The second cutoff list will be announced by DU on June 21.

Delhi students excel in UPSC exam

A student of Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), Ravi Dhawan, 23, had always been a brilliant student. On Wednesday, he proved it again when he secured 6th rank in the UPSC examination. The Delhi resident managed to get a rank last year as well. He was able to get through the Indian Police Service (IPS), but he always wanted to make it to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).

Dhawan, who is currently training at Hyderabad, believes that the number of hours you put in is of no importance. It is not a question of time but of what you do in those hours. It is important not to have too many sources of information, said Dhawan. There is not much of a difference between those who have got ranks in the top 10 and those in the last 10. At the end of the day, it is about faith, support of parents and teachers and blessings of God, he added.
Dhawan did his schooling from St Georges School, Alaknanda, and Delhi Public School, RK Puram. He then pursued BCom (honours) at SRCC. This is a matter of pride for the college and a big inspiration for the students. A celebration is due, said PC Jain, principal, SRCC.

Meanwhile, more than 10 students from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) are reported to have cracked the exam.
Ajay Prakash, who is pursuing his masters from JNU got the 9th rank. Three students from Jamia Millia Islamia have also managed to get through. The result at JNU has been very good. Five students from my hostel alone have cleared the exam, said Pinak Mishra, an MPhil student, who got 104th rank.

Another former DU student, Smriti Bhardwaj, also managed to clear the exam. Bharadwaj studied at Lady Shri Ram College. Yet for Bhardwaj, who has got 149th rank, the wait is not over as her final department of service still remains a mystery.
My first option was IAS, followed by IFS and finally the IRS. I doubt Ill make it to the first two, but I sincerely hope I find place in the revenue services, she said

SRCC admission process defied, HC issues notices

The Delhi High Court issued a notice to Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) on Wednesday, seeking its response to the alleged irregularities in the admission process for undergraduate programmes under the sports quota. A bench comprising Justices M.C. Garg and Ajit Bharihoke asked the college to respond to a students claim that he was denied admission last year because of irregularities in the admission process.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Abhishek Chandran, whose application for admission was rejected last year, despite being first on the wait list, and some other candidate was admitted instead whose name did not figure on the list. The petition was earlier dismissed on the ground that the admission process had been completed by that time.

The bench had, however, said the college had not been able to explain why a certain candidate, who had not figured on the merit list and wait list, was given admission. Advocate Sunil J. Mathews, appearing for the student who is studying in another Delhi University college, contended that the admission process under the sports quota is illegal as it is being handled by the colleges sports convener, who does not possess the qualifications notified by the UGC.

The court issued notices to the college, its sports convener and the Delhi University. The matter will now be heard on August 28.

Now, vying for a hostel seat

For Tsering Bhutia of Gangtok, having secured admission in two of Delhi Universitys best colleges — St. Stephens College and Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) — is not reason enough to celebrate.

Her real concerns are about finding a hostel seat. I have heard many stories about the
problems women students face while living in private accommodation. Not only is it more expensive, it is unsafe. I will join SRCC if I get hostel here, said Bhutia, who has scored 95 per cent marks in Class XII.

Bhutia has failed to get admission in St. Stephens Residence, and the chances of getting into the SRCC hostel are also bleak, given the fact that the college offers only three (hostel) seats for Economics (Honours) students. For women students from all over the country, getting into a college hostel is always preferable from the safety point of view. Priyanka Priyadarshini from Patna is one such student.
We were a bit shaky earlier about my daughter studying in DU, given the law and order situation. But now we have decided not to let go of this opportunity. Even before she applied to colleges, we found out about paying guest accommodation, Anjani Kumar, Priyankas father, told this corrrespondent over the phone from Patna.

Accommodation has always been a tricky issue, and things are particularly difficult for women, given the fact that only a handful of colleges offer them hostel seats. Co-educational colleges like St. Stephens, SRCC, Ramjas, Hindu, Kirori Mal, Hans Raj offer hostel facilities.

But of these colleges, only the first three offer hostel space for women. Hindu, however, is set to add a womens hostel by the next academic year. Womens colleges like Miranda House and Indraprastha remain in demand as they offer hostel facilities. Both the colleges are also augmenting their residential facilities.

SRCC principal P. C. Jain said, We offer 50 hostel seats for women, while the number of for men students is 150. But we have just received some grant for a womens hostel and are hoping to add 100 more rooms by next year. He said the present hostel was carved out of the existing space for men and a new hostel should make things fair.

At St. Stephens too, more hostel seats are offered to men as compared to women. The college offers 350 seats, of which 230 are for men, and 120 for women. Vinod Chaudhry, media adviser, St. Stephens College, said: The division of seats is as per a ratio of 1:2. A woman student gets a hostel seat for every two male students. We have plans to construct an additional womens hostel, but that plan has not taken off.

Things are worse in South Campus, with only Lady Shri Ram College offering hostel accommodation. Sri Venkateswara is the only other college that is set to start providing hostel facility for both men and women students from October this year.

Wheres the room in DU?
In North Campus, co-ed colleges St. Stephens, SRCC, Ramjas, Hindu, Kirori Mal and Hans Raj offer hostel facilities. But only the first three offer hostel seats for women students.
St. Stephens plans to construct an additional hostel for women, but no efforts yet towards that direction. In South Campus, Lady Shri Ram is the only college offering hostel accommodation.
Sri Venkateswara College will start providing hostel facilities for both men and women students by October this year.

Delhi university second cut-off list out

There is some good news for students who had failed to make it to their chosen college or course. Cut-off marks for many colleges have registered a dip ranging between 0.5 per cent to 5 per cent on an average and in some cases even more. Surprisingly, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), related stories

• In the aftermath
which normally closes admissions after the first list, has declared a second list for Economics Honours in which several seats are still unoccupied.

It has reduced its cut-off marks for Economics by 0.25 per cent. In a situation where students miss admission for the fraction of a percentage, colleges like Hindu, Hans Raj, Ramjas, Miranda House, Khalsa, Kirori Mal and Daulat Ram College (Womens) have all cut their cut-off marks for a range of subjects, not just science courses.

At Miranda House admissions are still open despite the number of sanctioned seats being already full. Hindu College has not just kept admissions open for most of its courses, it has slashed the cut-off considerably for several courses like BA Programme (-2 per cent), Hindi (-3 per cent), Political Science (-2 to -5) and Sanskrit (-8 to -10).
Colleges like Hans Raj and Ramjas have reduced their cut-off marks marginally in a few courses. In fact, colleges like Hindu, Hans Raj and Miranda House that had declared high cut-offs for Bcom Honours and Economics have all kept the admissions open for these courses, slashing the required percentage by 0.5 to 2.75 per cent

DU cut-off list out

The wait is over. Delhi University colleges have released the first cut-off list for admissions. As expected, the Commerce and Economics cut-off marks have shot up over last years while Humanities registered a marginal increase. Science cut-offs remained almost static.

• In the aftermath
Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) in the BCom Honours course, you need at least 94.75 per cent marks if you are a commerce stream student. If you are a science or humanities student without mathematics as a subject, you need 98.75 per cent.

SRCC principal PC Jain said the increase in the cut-off marks for BCom Honours and Economics in his college have been marginal. He said the cut-off marks for Commerce and Economics are bound to rise, given the good performance of these students in Class XII exams.

Cut-off marks for non-commerce stream students in BCom are high across the board, but very few such students get in, as there are hardly any applicants with the required scores.

Last year, our cut-off for (non-commerce) students was 97.25 per cent. But nobody came. Even 96.25 per cent is a very high score. Very few non-commerce students get such marks. Seats will be filled by commerce students, said SR Arora, principal of Hans Raj College.
The first Cut Off

SRCC Switches To Laptops In Class

Posted on Wed May 13, 2009

If you dream of studying at Delhi University s Shri Ram College of Commerce, make sure you have a laptop ready. From the coming academic year, the college is putting an end to the pen-and-paper style of teaching and all students, freshers as well as others, will be required to carry laptops to the classroom.
SRCC will thus become the first college in Delhi University and one of the first in the country to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) with classroom teaching. College authorities believe the shift will help improve the volume of teaching and efficiency of students.

"Teachers will take classes using LCD screens and all students will use laptops. The concept of teachers using their age-old notes for lectures and the students getting them photocopied is set to change. The freshers will be formally informed when they come for orientation on July 15," said principal P C Jain.

Jain said the SRCC campus would also become wi-fi-enabled soon. "The faculty can access information from the internet in the classroom and share it with students at the click of a mouse. Teaching will become faster as the teachers will no longer be required to write on the blackboard."

According to Jain, the college will rope in corporates to provide subsidy to students for acquiring laptops while the rest of the amount could be financed by banks. "A lot of our students already have laptops. Others can get laptops financed and pay it back with their first salary as their placement is assured after the final year," Jain said. He added that there would be no increase in college fees for the purpose.

The college has already started workshops for its teachers to train them on how to hold classes using ICT.
