The difference between Bcom and Bcom (hon) is that the education level is higher in Bcom (hon). The syllabus is more detailed and advanced. Certain colleges providing Bcom (hon) include Indian and Foreign texts to keep students at par with international level. Morever the students get specialization in a subject in the final year. In certain subjects there are even two compulsory texts, the indian and a foreign text and selected topics from each, other than the reference books added to them.

In a normal Bcom course its easy to get guides and notes but when it comes to Bcom (hon) you need to refer to different books and do your own work.

In many colleges Bcom (hon) has 6 subjects with all compulsory whereas in normal Bcom only 4-5 are compulsory

As for what subjects you should select it depends on your interest and which subject you think will be beneficial for you in terms of marks and demand in market

Some of the Indian University offering B.COM Honours course.
But all the universities offer B.COM.
Basically B.COM Hon is a three years course comprising Part I and Part II.
After passing Part I Course one is treated as a Pass Graduate also.After Passing two years Part I You have to undertake honours papers in third years those are Advance Accounts,Adv mang a/c ,Adv Economics,Tax,Math&Statistic etc.
And after Part II passing you will be awarded B.COM Hons degree.
It is a 12+3 Point pattern traditional study system and there are various courses which demand Hon Graduate for admission.
Where as B.COM is a Pass Graduation degree course for two years duration.
Kolkata university offer B.COM Hon degree which is basically Hon in Accountancy.
And yes the university fixed the papers as honours and you have to take all these as mandatory.
