It was in 1965 that some idealistic visionaries of Phagwara realized the pressing need to create a better social set up by educating the comparatively deprived gender. So, with the earnest efforts and indomitable spirit of Sh. Bhag Ram Handa, Sh. Bal Krishan Sardana, Sh. B.D Sardana, Sh. Pakhar Singh, Sh. Ram Krishan Uppal, Sh. Telu Ram Singla, Sh. Hans Raj Bansal, Pt. Kishori Lal and Sh. Jogendra Nath Joshi, this temple of education, then named as Phagwara College for Women, came into existence with a secular commitment to spread its light in all directions. The joint efforts of the progressive citizens of Phagwara and the growing faith of people in their vision fructified into the enrollment of merely 70 students in Handa Janj Ghar. Today, the college takes pride in having approximately thirty times the strength,i.e., more than 2000 students on its roll.
