It was the year 1973 which witnessed a new dawn in the era of women education, when the great visionary and philanthropist, Pandit Sant Nischal Singh ji Maharaj laid the foundation stone of Guru Nanak Girls College. His dream of liberating women from the clutches of illiteracy has blossomed into a beautiful reality in the shape of this institution. This reality manifests itself in the form of those confident, educated and successful women who began their flights of dreams from GNG and who today are scaling new heights of success in the various fields.
The Managing Committee of Guru Nanak Girls College is strengthened and motivated at every step by the pious vision of its founder, Pandit Sant Nischal Singh Ji who dreamt of equipping the daughters of nation with the armour of education so as to make them self-reliant, confident, ethical and progressive individuals who endeavours to surge towards the glorious historical watersheds of humanism, spirituality and professional success.
By ensuring a value based quality education to women, we envision a brighter future where a woman in her multiple roles as a daughter, sister, wife & mother will become a harbinger of positive changes in the society.
Adding another feather to its cap, the college won “Best Women College of the Year” Trophy in 2008. Objectives of the college are:
- To impart quality education in various streams and to cater to the need of skill-based learning through vocational courses.
