About Admission

The Durga Das Foundation was set up in 1994. Named after the revolutionary freedom fighter and former Chairman of the Punjab Legislative Council, the late Mr. Durga Das Khanna, the Foundation strives to uphold his principles of commitment, honesty and "country above self". The Foundation with its missionary zeal and enthusiasm is a blend of a traditional value system and modern ideology.

The Durga Das Foundation is a non-profit, non-government philanthropic organization dedicated to education, promotion of art and culture and runs programmes for the less privileged.

  • Day cares.
  • Rural and slum projects relating to education, vocational guidance and public health.
  • Art and culture promotion through concerts and recitals by renowned and amateur artistes in the fields of Indian classical music and dance, theatre and art.

Registered as a Trust on 6.1.1994, with the Sub Registrar, Chandigarh, the DDF is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees are eminent and responsible persons drawn from various sectors of life - business, public sector, universities and research institutions. All major decisions are routed through the Trust.
