The Department of Mathematics of P. D. Women's College was started functioning since 1950, the foundation year of the college. The honours course in mathematics was introduced from 2007. Most of the students studing mathematics honours have completed this course with flying colours. Some meritorious ones secured university rank and other competitive exams; even one of them in the year 2014 in B. Sc Mathematics Honours, University of North Bengal got second highest marks. So it may be concluded that since its inception, the department has never looked back but progressed steadily to be what it is today!
