The course of Industrial Relations and Labour Welfare was started in 1973 in the Department of Sociology, Social Work and Industrial Relations and Labour Welfare and was given independent status of a department in 1976. The increasing tempo of Industrialization, growing importance of Human Resource Management function in Industrial and Business Organizations and consequent need for trained personnel in the field of Man-Management led to the creation of this department. It was realized that a full-time two year programme with intensive training in Human Resource Management would be more useful to meet the needs of the growing human resource management professon.

There is a welcome and increasing tendency on the part of employers that it is only the trained and competent persons with positive attitude can only deliver goods and tend to employ trained mangers in Personnel, Industrial Relations and Welfare fields to effectively deal with the problems of Human Resources and achieve quality management.

The nomenclature of the degree also appropriately changed from time to time from M.A. Industrial Relations and Labour Welfare" to M.A. Industrial Relations and Personnel Management" and finally to Master of Human Resources Management from the academic year 1985. The course is given more practical and behavioral orientation with focus on Human Resources and their efficient management.
