It is in the memory of Mahatma ji, a pioneer in the field of education, that the D.A.V. College Management Committee had founded the college on 26th July, 1948. The college has been contributing to the solemn task of nation-building since its very inception. The exemplary service the college has rendered society has received due recognition in several nationwide surveys that have consistently ranked Hansraj College among the top five out of about 5000 colleges in India.

A dedicated team of faculty members and non-teaching staff form the backbone of our institutional machinery. I view my role as an administrator and a friend who facilitates overall development of the students of the college.
I welcome the new batch of students and invite them to embark on an intellectually invigorating journey with us.
