The D.A.V Movement :

AryaSamaj, a progressive faith, was founded in the last century by Maharshi Swami DayanandSaraswati. He was not only a saint and reformer but also one of the greatest patriots of his time and raised his voice against British domination. He set before his countrymen the ideals of Swaraj and Swadeshi long back.

The D.A.V. Trust and Managing Society was founded in 1885 to achieve the cherished goal of the great mentor. This was the beginning of a movement, now popularly known as D.A.V. Movement.

The D.A.V. College Trust and Managing Society is now the biggest non-government educational organization in India. It covers broadly the entire spectrum of educational activity in the Country. A few years back the D.A.V College Trust and Managing Society embarked upon an ambitious programme of opening a large number of D.A.V.
