Historical Background

Dr. Banarsi Das Soni, formerly Captain in the Indian Medical Service (I.M.S.), possessed a fervent commitment to medical education and patient care. His vision was to establish a medical school aimed at training doctors and delivering essential healthcare services. In 1934, this visionary idea materialized into the Arya Medical School, with only 20 students for the LSMF (Diploma of Punjab State Medical Faculty) in a rented facility at Civil Lines, Ludhiana.

In 1936, the management transitioned to Arya Samaj, Ludhiana, under the auspices of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Punjab. A separate administrative body, designated by the Management Committee of Arya High School in Ludhiana, was responsible for supervising the activities of the medical school. The Arya Medical School shifted to its own premises, later known as the Old Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, in 1937.

Recognition for LSMF and the operation of an affiliated hospital was granted to the medical school in 1938. Subsequently, the institution was renamed as "Dayanand Hospital".

In 1964, adhering to government regulations, “Dayanand Hospital” evolved into a comprehensive MBBS college, officially named Dayanand Medical College. The management of the college was entrusted to a distinguished group from Ludhiana, who formed the "Managing Society of Dayanand Medical College & Hospital," with the esteemed Late Sh. H. R. Dhanda serving as its founding president.

  Today, the college holds recognition from the National Medical Commission (NMC) and is affiliated with BFUHS, Faridkot, admitting 100 students annually into the MBBS course.
