Zakir Husain Delhi College (Evening) - ZHDC New Delhi - ZHDC

Dr. Zakir Husain, after whom this college is named, was the President of India from 1967 to 1969. He was a freedom fighter and an eminent educationist who was closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi. He chaired the Committee to formulate the scheme of basic education following the Wardha Educational Conference in 1937. He was also an acclaimed author and was awarded the highest national honour - Bharat Ratna - in 1963.Zakir Husain College is the oldest College of Delhi. It was established as a Madarsah by Ghaziuddin Firoz Jung in 1780 outside Ajmeri Gate. It later developed into Delhi College in 1825 when it was popularly known as "Dilli College". During the middle of the 19th Century, due to political upheavals like the Great Uprising of 1857, it had to be shut down. It was reopened and was shifted to Kashmiri Gate in the building where presently the offices of the Indraprastha University are located.Subsequently, in 1864, for sometime the College also functioned in Chandni Chowk at the site of the present Town Hall. In 1867, it returned to its original building at Ajmeri Gate. In 1877, Delhi College was merged with Government College, Lahore. The Partition of the Country in 1947 gave a major jolt to the college but after temporary closure the College reopened bearing its old name- Delhi College. The institution has had the association and participation of some of the most distinguished public men as well as national and international educationists and academicians.In 1975, the College was taken over by Dr. Zakir Husain Memorial College Trust and was re-named as Zakir Husain College. Zakir Husain Post Graduate Evening College is managed by the aforementioned Trust, with the Prime Minister of India in the chair. Evening Classes were introduced in 1958.
