About the Department

Our college, Vivekananda Mission Mahavidyalaya was established at Chaitanyapur (Haldia) , in Purba Medinipur in 1968 with only the Arts Faculty as a primary step. Later it expanded its academic curricula by introducing the science and commerce faculty in the progressive years.The college authority, to provide variety, opened the Commerce Faculty to offer Commerce as a general subject in 1971-72. Later, the rapid industrialization in Haldia created a huge employment opportunity which prompted the authority to introduce Accountancy as an Honours subject in 1991- 92. We also admire the activities and contributions of the following teachers in glamorizing our departments . Prof Aloke Kumar Bhattacharyya has served our Department from 1972 - 1979.

Sri SaumitMandal has completed his M.Ed. degree from VidyasagarUniversity. Most of the students come from the local villages except a few who are from the distant places. Changes in the courses or programmes are done by the Board of Studies,Vidyasagar University has made dynamic changes in the syllabus of each subject in 2017 after conducting a series of workshops involving the teachers from all the colleges under the jurisdiction of the University. The changed syllabus with Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and Semester Examination will be effective for the students admitted in 1 st year in 2018.

The Department had organized a State Level UGC sponsored Seminar on “Globalization of Indian Accounting Standards on 20.12.2008”. Sometimes, the teachers use the Overhead projector and slides in the class-room. The success triggered by the audio-visual method has prompted the Department to acquire more sophisticated LCD projector, Overhead Projector, rolling board and other equipment. Sometimes, the teachers use the Overhead projector and slides in the class-room. We take the help of Laptop to teach on some topics through power point in general classes. The students can know the procedure of filling various Tax & accounting based forms through the teaching by the help of Overhead Projector. So far as the trends in success-rate and admission rate are concerned, the Department has a mixed experience. In present years the admission in Commerce is rapidly collapsed. Due to non-availability of vacancy in SSC for the appointment in Schools the students from rural areas are reluctant to read in commerce. We observed that we had heavy demand in earlier period for admission to Commerce when we had to publish merit list for the admission in 1 st year Commerce. We must consider the fact that the college is situated in a scheduled-caste belt and, hence, most of the students are from poor backward families. For most of the students, it is the first generation that is undergoing higher education. Obviously, they feel uncomfortable in the atmosphere of continuous change. The end-result is “drop-out” and moderate success rate. But the result of our departments is very much attractive because the success rate of our department is 100% in last five years. And the students of our Departments awarded 25 First class in last nine years. The students of the Department have a good access to the Central Library of the Mahavidyalaya and there are approximately 3145 books. There are about 105 books for the Commerce Department along with one journal. The students use the computers of the Commerce Department. They have the opportunity to use four computers, one laptop and an external hard disc in the Department. However, there is an urgent need to increase the number of books and journals especially after the change in the syllabus. The Faculty generally follows the traditional lecture-method for teaching and the medium of lecture is Bengali and English. Inter-active discussion and feedback method are followed too. Besides the usual teaching and research, the teachers are engaged in many co-curricular and student-welfare related activities. Sri Arijit Roy is closely associated with the N.S.S. wing of the Mahavidyalaya and is the Programme officer of N.S.S.. He had participated in a N.S.S. Orientation Course conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India in I.I.T., Kharagpur.. Dr. ManisankarMaiti, the Ex-Principal, himself was an A.N.O. All the teachers in the department are members of different sub- committees like the Academic Sub-Committee, Finance Sub-Committee and Development Sub- Committee and so on. The teachers are actively engaged in personal as well as academic counseling to the students. Information regarding various job oriented courses, entrance tests and job vacancies are provided to the students.
