Hard work of the yester years blossoms - says history
Dyal Singh Trust was established through the munificence of Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia in 1898 along with two other Trusts i.e. The Tribune Trust and Dyal Singh Library Trust.
Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia was a great nationalist, an enlightened social reformer, a visionary, a man of action and a great philanthropist. He believed that salvation of the country lay in modern liberal education. To accomplish this task he bequeathed his entire property to three trusts. It was an act of farsightedness.
In his will’ Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia desired that the committee of Trustees should establish a first rate Arts college with a feeding school for the dissemination of sound liberal education of a high standard based on pure morality. During his own Lifetime he established a school called ‘union academy’ in the interior of the city of the Lahore, now in Pakistan. The committee of Trustee later decided to change the name of the school to Dyal Singh High School. After his death Dyal Singh college was established by the same Trust at Lahore in 1910. Both these institutions made rapid progress and were running with great distinction till the time of partition of the country. These institutions continue to flourish under the government of Pakistan.
The Trust established Dyal Singh College at Karnal in the year 1949 through the untiring efforts, zeal and dedication of Late Dewan Anand Kumar, former Vice- Chancellor of the Punjab University and Honorary general Secretary of the College of the Trust Society. It is worth mentioning that at that time there was no college anywhere between Rohtak and Ambala. By his selfless service and active co-operation of the other Trustees, Dyal Singh College has become one of the premier educational institutions of higher learning in North Western India.
The members of the college Trust Society always felt the need of a good feeding school run on Public School lines to meet the growing need of the town and to fulfill the dream of the great Sardar. In pursuance of this goal Dyal Singh Public School, Dyal Singh Colony, Karnal was established in 1983 by the dedicated efforts of the enlightened Trustees. In 1998 another Dyal Singh School was established in Sector-7, Karnal. Both these schools are running successfully and are ranked among the best schools in Haryana. The Trust then catered to the educational needs of the people in Jagadhri where its third Dyal Singh Public School started functioning from April, 08. Catering to the needs of people in Panipat, the Trust started its fourth school in April, 2010.
