An overview


          DYAL SINGH COLLEGE  was  founded in accordance with  the  will of
Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia,  one of the  greatest sons of Punjab,  in  Lahore.
Sardar Dyal Singh belonged to the  Shergil or Gill clan of Sardars of  Majitha
village near Amritsar. He is also well-known as the “Founder of The Tribune”
and one who bequeathed his largely self-earned assets including prestigious
buildings in  Lahore and  lands in  Amritsar, Lahore and  Gurdaspur  districts
worth about Rs.30 lakh in 1898  to two  trusts which established  Dyal Singh
College and  Dyal Singh Public Library
in Lahore.  Sardar Dyal Singh Majitha
was a great  philanthropist and  lover of education.  A man of great vision and
action,  he donated all  his assets  for the  propagation of  education. He had
an unusually farsighted vision.  He wanted to generate a  scientific outlook in
the  minds   of  the   common   people  who  suffered  from  blind  faith   and
superstition. He  wanted to  eradicate  orthodox  and  irrelevant  views.
          A little lesser known fact is that Sardar Dyal Singh was one among the 17 "good men and true"
who decided in 1884 to found the Indian National Congress.
He sailed for England in 1874, and in his
interactions  with  intellectual luminaries there,  he  gained  an enormous intellect. While in India,  he
came  into  contact  with  many  architects  of  Modern  India such as  Rabindranath Tagore,  Swami
Vivekanand, Swami Dayanand,  Dadabhai Naoroji and Mahadev Ranade,  which influenced his beliefs
and  thought  processes
          After independence, the torch of his three Trusts was kept alive in India. In the field of education,
one college was established at Karnaland another in Delhi by late Dewan Anand Kumar, an eminent
educationist and ex-Vice-Chancellor of Punjab University.

qualitative  improvement.  The  quality  of  the  incoming  students  and  the
University results have shown a progressive upward movement;  the addition
of essential amenities and other facilities for students has made the College
