An Innovative method of learning:

The T.Y.B. Sc Economics students tutored the first year students for Intermediate Mathematics under the guidance of Prof. Rohit Muraleedharan.

This not only helped the first year in understanding and practicing mathematical concepts but also aided greatly the T.Y. students in the better understanding of concepts.
