The lecture was delivered by Mrs. Kawaljit Mahajan, Head, Department of History, PCM S.D. College for Women, Jalandhar on May 13th, 2022. The speaker informed the students about the various impacts of British rule on Indian economy with main focus on the ‘Drain of Wealth Theory’ of Dadabhai Naoroji.
An elaborated account of the theory made the students aware about the various policies of the British Government, which were cleverly designed to take the wealth out of the nation without the common masses knowing about it. The lecture was very informative and interesting as well and left the students longing for more. The event was graced by all the faculty members of the P.G. Department of Economics. The honourable members of the Managing Committee and the worthy Principal Prof. (Dr.) Pooja Prashar appreciated the Department for organising the activity with a multidisciplinary approach.
