writing histfile in csh.login IBM AIX server

Hello all. Greetings

How can I set a historyfile and write the history in c shell in csh.login file in IBM AIX server.
If I mention in /etc/profile
export HISTFILE=<somepath>
it is working.
But in /etc/csh.login
set histfile=<somepath>
it is not working. I have learned from some online resources that for C shell, the histfile setting does not works, but I need the history file to be set for C shell users also.
Please share your suggestion/ solution.

Thank you, Raj.

Don't know myself; maybe nobody here knows. Sorry.
