The college started in June, 1951 with just five students and used to sit in the high school building of our Management. In the early sixties the college moved in our present building. By this time, the number of students had increased to around eight hundred. It was still only Arts college with six subjects for specialization at U.G. & five subjects of specialization at P.G. In the early seventies two more subjects for specialization started at U.G. level. In the late seventies when the pre-university classes were gone under 10 + 2 formula, the college started Commerce Faculty.
Ours is the first women’s college in Saurashtra and one of the oldest women’s colleges in Gujarat. It is a leading college in SNDT women’s University in the sense that the Faculty of Commerce started in the University because our college wanted to start B. Com. degree programme. We started PG centre for five subjects at M.A. in 1963 and in that sense some of our PG subjects started before the PG department of the university. We started the M.Com. Programme before it started at University campus. Ours is the first college to start the programme of Bachelor of Management Studies. Ours is also the first college to start specialization in costing at B.Com degree. The date of college was recognised by U.G.C.
This not only compensated for the loss of pre-university classes, but increased the overall strength of students in the college. During the eighties and early nineties, the strength of the college remained between 1300 and 1600. In the eighties we also started P.G. in Commerce Faculty. In the late nineties, we introduced P.G. in two more subjects and also a new Faculty – Management Studies – and started the U.G. programme of BMS. We also introduced the vocational course of Communicative English during these years. Finally in 2001, we introduced another vocational course Office Management and Secretarial Practice. Thus the college has developed academically during these fifty years and has succeeded in creating the impression of being a very good college of the region. The financial category of the college
