About DAV


The story of DAV begins with the birth of Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati in 1824. It was a time when Indian society was at its Cultural, Social, and Political nadir. The Indian environment was politically subjugated to the British that resulted in social divisions and superstition religious dogma and social oppression of women and marginalized sections of society.

Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati was one of the several contemporary social reformers who led a crusado against all the social evils such as discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, sex, economic status and social bigotry, male chauvinism and religious dominance of higher castes over the backward castes and classes. He fought for the rights of women and opened "Kanya Vidyalayas" to empower and enlighten them. Unfortunately, the task of social resurgence was too vast to be completed during his lifetime and when Maharishi attained Samadhi in 1883, the Indian society was only partially reformed, with the onus of completing this unfinished task falling on his followers. He was the harbinger of ‘Doya’ and ‘Anand’ to the millions of the deprived and gave a new height of trouth to society.He was the attempt to bring a renaissave of Vedic value which covered by Brahmanic System.

Core Value

Taking a stock of the ground realities of Indian society and the nature of the task undertaken by Maharishi, his followers decided to commemorate his life and works not by building lifeless statues, but by opening temples of learning - schools and colleges where all the values advocated by Maharishi would be inculcated in the children so that they could carry forward his message and work ceaselessly throughout their life to carry out the reforms suggested by him.

Foundation Stone

In 1885 the first DAV School was established at Lahore which was subsequently upgraded to become the first DAV College. In 1886 the DAV College Trust and Management Society was established and registered. The DAV Society visualized that the DAV Schools shall produce men and women of sterling national character and social commitment. The commendable objectives of the DAV attracted several committed individuals and groups to serve the society by striving to collect petty donations and gather humble resources to set up DAV Schools to spread Maharishi's message for enlightening all the Indians. Thus the crusade against ignorance, illiteracy, injustice and inequality was revived and it gained further momentum with the opening of each DAV School.

Core Body & Branches

DAV College Managing Committee, the executive body of the DAV College Trust & Management Society, streamlined the school curriculum and administrative processes and gave the social movement a splendid vision and precise direction. Towards the end of nineteenth century and in the first half of twentieth century the DAV College Trust & Management Society established a number of schools. These schools were broadly categorized as directly controlled and managed schools. Some more schools came into the DAV fold as they were subsequently affiliated to DAV College Trust & Management Society.

The DAV institutions soon gained respect and reputation in the society and began to be recognized for their high academic standards and value-based education. The faculty comprised towering personalities such as Mahatma Hansraj, Principal Gyan Chand, Lala Sain Das and Pandit Meher Chand, who selflessly dedicated their lives to the reengineering of the Indian society through modern education and Vedic values. A glorious DAV alumni is a testimony to these facts.

Thus started the movement, which right from the beginning was led by missionaries, visionaries, nationalists and other like-minded people. As the time rolled on, there emerged new needs, new challenges and new decisions in tandem with the changing scenario. The DAV Movement continues to surge ahead under the dynamic and motivating leadership of Sh. Mehr Chand, Lala Balraj, Justice Mehar Chand Mahajan, Dr.G.L.Dutta, Lala Suraj Bhan, Prof Ved Vyas, Sh. Darbari Lal , Sh. T.R. Tuli, Sh G P Chopra and Shri Punam Suri. It was their missionary consciousness that fostered the growth of many more institutions across the country and lead DAV to newer heights.

The Heritage

The vision of a powerful and enlightened India had been conceived by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati (1824-1883). He dedicated his whole life to awaken the ignorant, illiterate masses of this country. He knew that it could be feasible only through education and literacy. The vision and philosophy of the fearless reformer, Maharshi Dayanand, was given a practical shape by Mahatma Hans Raj, who led the educational renaissance in India.

As his most important legacy, the Mahatma left behind a pragmatic and enlightened approach to education. One aspect of his approach was his choice of English- oriented Science-based education with a blend of Vedic values. Another was the great emphasis he laid on women education. Lastly, true to the egalitarian basis of Arya Samaj philosophy (as conceived by Maharishi Dayanand), Mahatmaji believed in equality for all students irrespective of their caste, colour and creed were welcome to join the DAV institution. The first institution was founded at Lahore in 1886 with Lala Hans Raj (Later Mahatma Hansraj) himself as the dedicated Headmaster. Today, the movement is led by DAV veterans like Shri Punam Suri and his team of dedicated Office Bearers, who have a progressive vision. It is due to their dedication and farsightedness that every year DAV CMC is opening new schools in various parts of India.

The Objective

The DAV vision of education telescopes well with the National Policy on Education (1986) which lays great emphasis on developing a national system of education, with Education For All, keeping in mind the elimination of disparities in the educational system and provision of more facilities through qualitative interventions, empowerment of women, access to education to disadvantaged sections of the society, educationally backward minorities and the disabled. It also calls for greater rigour and discipline in academic pursuits, autonomy and accountability, experimentation and innovation and nurture excellence and modernization of processes at different levels of education. In order to accomplish the mission, the objectives laid down are as under:

  • To provide a wide range of holistic education by homogenizing the western knowledge while remaining anchored to the Indian cultural moorings;
  • To act as a catalyst of change by spreading education, and by dismantling the cobwebs of ignorance and illiteracy;
  • To develop individuals who are morally upright, intellectually well-informed, socially concerned, emotionally balaced, physically well-developed and culturally accomplished;
  • To stimulate a scientific temper by crusading against superstitions and out-dated customs like child marriage, caste systm, female foeticide, dowry, gender bias, regionalism etc;
  • To sensitize individuals towards social welfare and To nurture creative and resourceful minds who think big, think fast and think ahead, who care for the nation and the weaker sections of society, and are imbued with humanistic passions and values.

The Vision

The DAV has a clear-cut vision:

  • To make everyone a good citizen with cosmopolitan outlook towards peace and prosperity.
  • To continue expanding and exploring, locally and globally and be a knowledge leader and content provider.
  • To muster strategies to become a global epicenter of knowledge, culture, skills, technology, research, and service.
  • To empower women through education.
  • To have respect for the fundamental duties ingrained in the constitution of India.

DAV Social Work

The spirit behind any social activity determines its range and quality as also its continuity. The social programs of DAV have been both preventive and ameliorative, deriving sustenance from the sixth and ninth commandments of the Arya Samaj which say: ‘do good for all’ promote ‘physical, spiritual and social well-being’ of all, avoid being self centric and work for ‘welfare of others.’ Yajna which forms the substratum of Arya metaphysics and ethics is not a mere fire ritual but a benevolent institution which involves every living being and even primeval elements. In its social meaning, it envelopes all humanitarian activities undertaken without selfish motive.
