Swami Shukdevanand College was established by Late Shri Swami Shukdevanand Saraswati Ji Maharaj in 1964. As a great visionary of the beautiful society of free India, he was committed to develop spirituality, morality, scientific approach and commitment among the students to turn them into qualified and sincere citizens. To fulfil this commitment, he founded this institution and gave his name to it.
The college session started in 1964 with BA first year classes, and within a short span of time it touched the great heights of development. Swami Ji felt the need for good teachers in running the concurrent education system and with his constant efforts B Ed classes were started in 1965 in the college. The same year B Sc classes were also added to the institution. With the glorious talent show in the field of Arts, Science and Education, the institute continued its journey for years towards the progress path under the presidency, skilled leadership and direction of Late Shri Swami Shukdevanand Ji Saraswati.
In 1982, new possibilities were explored when Late Shri Swami Shashwatanand Ji Saraswati became its president. The efforts of the new management committee bore fruits with the addition of B Com courses in 1985. With the constant efforts of the present President Shri Swami Chinmayanand Saraswati Ji, the then Secretary Pramod Chandra Seth and Manager and Principal, Dr Soti Shivendra Chandra, the college got the permission from the government to run M Ed and M Com courses.
Shri Swami Shukdevanand auditorium, seminar hall and educational techniques and psychological laboratory were constructed under the directions of Swami Chinmayanand Saraswati and determined efforts of the secretary Dr Ravi Mohan, which were inaugurated by the then Governor Acharya Shri Vishnukant Shastri.
A complete new look was given to the library and reading room in 2003, when it was constructed with all the facilities. Various lecture halls, lecture theatres, and indoor stadium were built in the year 2004 and were inaugurated on February 26, 2006, by the ex president of NCERT, Dr JS Rajpoot, and the then director of higher education, Dr RK Baslas.
