Psychology as an independent field of study was first begun in India in 1916 at the University of Calcutta. This was followed by the University of Mysore in 1924, the University of Panjab in 1927, the University of Banaras in 1934, the University of Madras in 1943, and the University of Patna in 1946. The applied psychology section of the University of Calcutta was the only department in the country that had facilities for research in mental testing, educational psychology, and industrial psychology in the prewar era. Since the independence of the country in 1947, facilities for teaching and research in psychology increased considerably. By 1967–1968 as many as 32 universities had separate departments of psychology offering facilities for teaching and research at postgraduate levels.
