About Us

True wisdome is known what is likely to happen. These words can be best ascribed to Swami Jyothirmayananda, the chief Sevak representing Delhi Chinmaya Sewa trust. He was the main architect who responded to the call given by the Board of Director of the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Haridwar in 1987, for establishing a Science Degree College in their premises. Since then the efforts continued and the College was approved by the State Government of Uttar Pradesh vide their letter No 282/15-11-89-2-24/88 dated 13th March 1989. U.P.. Government put the college on grant-in-aid list from 3rd Oct,1994 , vide letter Degree Arth-1/3717-21/96-97 dated 22-5-96.

The history of its genesis rested on the pragmatic collaboration of B.H.E.L.
