DYAL SINGH COLLEGE was  founded in accordance with  the  will of 
Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia,  one of the  greatest sons ofPunjab,  in  Lahore.
Sardar Dyal Singh belonged to the  Shergil or Gill clan of Sardars of Majitha village near Amritsar. He is also well-known as the ?Founder of TheTribune and one who bequeathed his largely self-earned assets including prestigious buildings in  Lahore and  lands in  Amritsar, Lahore and Gurdaspur  districts worth about Rs.30 lakh in 1898  to two  trusts which established Dyal Singh College and  Dyal Singh Public Library in Lahore.  SardarDyal Singh Majitha was a great  philanthropist and  lover of education.  A man ofgreat vision andaction,  he donated all  his assets  for the  propagationof  education. He hadan unusually farsighted vision.  He wanted to generate a  scientificoutlook in the  minds   of  the   common   people who  suffered  from  blind  faith   andsuperstition. He  wanted to  eradicate  orthodox  and irrelevant  views.

 A little lesser known fact is that Sardar Dyal Singh was one among the 17 "good men and true"
who decided in 1884 to found the Indian National Congress.
 He sailed for England in 1874, and in his
interactions  with  intellectual luminaries there,  he  gained  an enormous intellect. While in India,  he 
came  into  contact  with  many  architects  of  Modern  India such as  Rabindranath Tagore,  Swami
Vivekanand, Swami Dayanand,  Dadabhai Naoroji and Mahadev Ranade,  which influenced his beliefs 
and  thought  processes.


        After independence, the torch of his three Trusts was kept alive in India. In the field of education,
one college was established at Karnaland another in Delhi by late Dewan Anand Kumar, an eminent 
educationist and ex-Vice-Chancellor of Punjab University.

The College started functioning in the capital as a constituent College of the University of
