About Hindu College, Delhi

Established in 1899, Hindu College, located in Delhi is a constituent college of the University of Delhi. It was established by Krishan Dassji Gurwale. One of the premier colleges of Delhi, it was founded to provide higher education to deserving candidates and become a landmark in the field of education.

The college is affiliated to the University of Delhi, New Delhi and was recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) under section 2(f) & 12(B) on 1st January 1956 under the UGC Act, 1956. It was accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with "A+" Grade (in a 1st cycle) on 2nd December 2016.

Located in the urban part of Delhi, it is a government institute and a co-educational college which provides regular courses. As a grant-in-aid college, the government decides on the provisions to be provided to the students and also the fee structure.

The college was originally affiliated to Punjab University as the University of Delhi did not exist at that time. The college initially started off from a building in Kinari Bazar, Chandni Chowk. However, in 1902, the college faced a major crisis.

The college was warned by the Punjab University that if it did not get a proper building of its own to operate from, the college would be disaffiliated. Rai Bahadur Lala Sultan Singh bailed the college out of this situation. It was he who donated this property at Kashmiri Gate, Delhi, which belonged to Colonel James Skinner, to the college. From here, the college functioned till the year 1953.

In 1922, when the University of Delhi was founded, three colleges were taken over by the University of Delhi. These were the Hindu College, the St. Stephen's College and Ramjas College. These three colleges were the first of the colleges to be affiliated to the University of Delhi.

Since 1935, Hindu College has a Student's Parliament, the only college in Delhi to have such a facility. Hence, it provided a platform to many national leaders to motivate the youth: Subhash Chandra Bose, Annie Besant, Mahatma Gandhi, Motilal Nehru, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sarojini Naidu and Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

During the Quit India Movement, the staff and students of this college supported Gandhiji wholeheartedly and some of them even went to jail. The college was closed for several months.
