Dyal Singh College, Delhi University - located in a very central location
Centrally located, this college did not have a very good reputation a couple of decades back, but it has struggled to improve its reputation and now has a much better reputation. The college takes its name from that of Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, who belonged to the Shergil or Gill clan of Sardars of Majitha village near Amritsar. He did very well for himself, and set a lot of his money to 2 trusts that set up a college and a public library. Sardar Dyal Singh was also one of the original founders of the Indian National Congress.
The college became a constituent college of Delhi University in 1959, and was taken over by the Delhi University in 1978. The college is located right next to Lodhi Road, near 2 famous schools, Air Force Bal Bharti School and Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, and very close to Lodhi Garden and Humayun's tomb.
