The college was setup in 1970 in gandhi nagar by the delhi administrator (now the govt. Of nct of delhi) out of grants from ugc and delhi administration with a specific objective of providing oppurtunities for higher education to women in the trans yamuna area. The foundation stone of the old building was laid on 25th oct 1976by prof. S. Nurul hassan and the buidling was dedicated by swami ranganathananda of the ramkrishna mission in 1979. The college started in a school building with approximately 300 students admitted to b.a. (pass). Since then the college has witnessed a meteroic rise in the number of students seeking admission in the different courses offered by it. One of the much sought after colleges in the trans-yamuna area, it has grown to its present stature under the able guidance of the founder principal, dr. Raj wadhwa and the first chairperson of the governing body, mr. Kataria.
