Bhagalpur is characterized by a backward region in the backward State of Bihar where Industrial activities has very slow progress. Previously Bhagalpur City was known as Silk City. Bhagalpur has not achieved any landmark in the pace of Development. Not a single industrial unit except NTPC Kahalgaon has been promoted in the entire region of Eastern Bihar and particularly in Bhagalpur. In spite of this adversity the Commerce Education in this region got properly in boys as well as girls students. The ratio of boys and girls students enrolled during the last four year is nearly 60-40 ratio of the total strength of 120 intake of this Department. Regarding the location and layout Department has all favorable amenities. However, lack of space is major hurdle to meet the proper needs of the students as well as the the teachers.
