About the University
Commerce education in India began in 1886 with the establishment of a commercial school in Chennai (erstwhile Madras). Shri Ram College of Commerce embarked on its voyage early in the year 1920 when on the day of Basant Panchmi, seven leading businessmen in Delhi established the Commercial Education Trust. Under the name ‘The Commercial School’ at Charkhewalan in the walled city of pre-independence Delhi, the trust set up its first school in the same year. The school introduced a Post-Matriculation Diploma Programme in Commerce under the supervision of Mr R.K. Kumar, who later became the first Principal of the Commercial College. The inauguration of the Commercial College paved the entry of commerce education in the University system of Delhi. The first batch of students was enrolled on the first floor of a ‘Hall’ opposite the St. James’ Church at Kashmere Gate.
