This is an introductory course on economics, orienting students towards economic thinking. In this course, we try to conceptualize the economic behavior of different stakeholders such as consumers, firms using neo-classical tools such as optimization technique. We also emphasise the need for government intervention under certain circumstances. The  concepts learned in this course are being applied to understand the impact of various government interventions like taxation, subsidies, cash transfer, food distribution, healthcare policies and many other government programmes.
