Dayanand Arya Kanya Mahavidyalaya is run by Arya Vidya Sabha, an organization which follows the principles of Maharshi Swami Dayanand Saraswati, an advocate of women’s emancipation and education. Our college is situated in a comparatively less developed, reserved constituency of North Nagpur. We get girls who either belong to Minority Community or background Classes. Most of them come from very poor background. Hailing from such a background the girls are not encouraged for higher education. So the college rang its first bell in 1983 with the motive of providing higher education to them.
The college is permanently affiliated to RTM Nagpur University and was accorded the U.G.C recognition under 2f and 12(B) status in 2004.Its financial status is grant-in-aid. The college has affiliation in Arts & Commerce BA & B.Com. Besides this the college is running various (self financing) courses MA Hindi, M.A. Economics, B.Com English medium & various Add on courses, bridge courses in Fashion Designing, Music and Home Economics.
The progress of the college has been possible due to the able guidance and Leadership of our honorable( Founder of Arya Vidya Sabha) Late Dada Sangatram Arya, honorable ex-president Late Shri Rochaldas Kewalaramani, honorable ex-secretary Late Shri Cheturam Lalwani, honorable, ex-Treasurer Shri Assudaram Khubchandani, (1986 to 95) ex-principal Dr. T. Krishanmurthy and ex - principal Dr. Vandana Khushalani, (1995 to 2017). These stalwarts have led the college towards the present achievements. The college today has established itself as one of the prominent colleges of North Nagpur.
The College has adequate infrastructure with computer laboratories, class rooms seminar/conference hall, well enriched and partially digitalized library with internet facilities and well equipped gymnasium.
