KMC History

Kirori Mal College, established in 1954, is one of the leading institutions of higher learning constituent to the University of Delhi for all academic and administrative purposes. In a journey spanning over six decades, the college has evolved from its humble beginning to a bustling institution catering to thousands of students across the country. Founded in the aftermath of the country’s independence, Kirori Mal College is one of the oldest institutions of the University of Delhi and is located in the University Enclave, the heart of the city. Set up in the Nehruvian model of ‘a temple of higher learning for the spread of modernity’, the college continues to cherish its ideal of a providing an excellent yet affordable higher education to a large social cross-section of students as befitting a public-funded institution.

 

The Beginnings: From NIRMALA COLLEGE to the Present Premises

 

The college first came into existence as Nirmala College in 1951, started by the American Jesuits in an evacuee building in Qutab Road, Old Delhi in the wake of the partition. The college ran into problems right from the outset: the premises were unhygienic and inadequate and also there was a crunch of qualified faculty. More importantly the college was inundated by the students and staff of families uprooted by the partition which led to the founders abandoning the college to its fate. In such a context the University of Delhi, led by its visionary Vice-Chancellor Prof G D Mahajani, with active patronage and cooperation of the Union Government, took over the dilapidated institution and handed it over to Seth Kirori Mal Charitable Trust, a philanthropic organization dedicated to the spread of education in the state of old Punjab (including Haryana). In July 1954, the college with the name Kirori Mal College was established and was allotted land on the fringes of the University Enclave better known as the North Campus. The first President of the Indian Republic, Dr Rajendra Prasad, laid the foundation stone of the present college building in the summer of 1955, thus certifying the priority the Government of India accorded to the establishment and the flowering of this institution. With generous funds from both the Government of India (ensured by the then Education Minister Mr Humayun Kabir) and the Seth Kirori Mal Charitable Trust along with the tireless strivings of the famous architect duo Anand Apte and Jhabwala, a wild, stinking, hitherto uninhabitable tract of land was transformed into an impressive and imposing premises of a new, modern, secular institution of higher learning within the span of one year. The hallmark of the new building has been its unique, state of the art façade which still remains unaltered in the last 60 years as a mark of respect for the founding minds, especially the architect duo. It is a matter of pride and honour that the college building, especially its façade, owing to its unique design, building plan and structural layout, has been a subject of study in the courses of architecture and design in the School of Planning and Architecture, a premier institution in the country. Under the able stewardship of Ch. Hardwari Lal, the first Principal of the college (1954-57), Kirori Mal College began its first full-fledged functioning from the academic session 1956-57.

 

1. The Phase of Development: Dr Sarup Singh and After (1957-75).

If any individual should be credited to have single-handedly led the college from its nascent stage to its maturity, it was Dr Sarup Singh, the legendary Principal of the college (1957-65) who later became the Professor-and-Head, Department of English, University of Delhi and then the Vice-Chancellor, DU, followed by becoming the Lt Governor, Delhi and then the Governor of Gujarat. Dr Sarup Singh transformed Kirori Mal College from a fringe to a major institution of the University of Delhi by consciously investing on talent during faculty recruitment. He scouted for the best talent across the country and even outside and eventually persuaded them to join as teachers in Kirori Mal College. It was Sarup Singh’s vision to make Kirori Mal College an institution of modern learning as well as his ability to identify talented teachers that led to legends like K M Ashraf (History), Frank Thakurdas and Nand Lal Gupta (Political Science), Ajeet Kumar and Vishwanath Tripathi (Hindi), N S Khare (Physics), Arun Bose (Economics), B N Raina, Raj Kumar Kohli, Amritjit Singh and O P Grewal (English) join Kirori Mal College as teachers and shape the present and the future of the institution for decades. Under Sarup Singh’s leadership Kirori Mal College witnessed an unprecedented development in the form of new departments, new teachers across disciplines, well-equipped laboratories and of course a well-stocked library.
