Acharya Narendra Dev College

It was in early 1991 that Shri Chandra Shekhar, then Prime Minister of India, announced the establishment of Acharya Narendra Dev College in the name of his idealogue.  Starting out with an interim allotment of four rooms in a SPS structure in R. K. Puram Sector 4 School, the college enrolled its first batch of students and began its teaching programs with two courses - B.Com. Honours and B.Sc General 'A' and eighty students.

In August 1992, the college moved to its current temporary premises in Govindpuri, Kalkaji, which had just been vacated by Shaheed Bhagat Singh College and started with B.Sc (Hons) Electronics and B.Sc General Computer Science.  Later we added B.Sc (Hons) in Physics and Chemistry in 1993, Botany, Zoology and Mathematics in 1994, B.Sc General 'B' group and B.Sc General Sericulture in 1995 and PGDCA in 1996.
