The Department of History and Culture, Jamia Millia Islamia was first granted Department Research Support under the Special Assistance Programme of the University Grants Commission in April 2002. In the first Phase of the DRS-SAP programme of the thrust area was Historical Demography and Social Change in India. Towards the end of the first phase, with the recruitment of new faculty members in the Department it was felt that the thrust area should be widened to include the research interests of a larger number of faculty.
