It was the vision and hard work of a group of great social reformist and academicians of Rajasthani community of Nagpur, which converted a small dream of imparting education to the youth, into reality.
They formed the Adarsh Vidya Mandir Society in the year 1955 and opened a primary school with only twenty two students. With time and efforts, the secondary and higher secondary schools were started.
As the years went by, need was felt to provide facility of higher education to girls in the eastern part of Nagpur. The Society made concrete efforts and started Junior and Senior College for girls with the generous donations offered by “Nav Bharat Charitable Trust” to commemorate the memory of Smt. Kaushalyadevi Maheshwari, for her role played in the upliftment of women of Rajasthani community.
Thus in 1998-99 KDM College made a humble beginning with only Arts faculty. The Commerce faculty commenced from 2000-01 session and Fashion Designing from 2006-07 session. In a span of ten years. KDM College made its presence felt in girls higher education.
At present the college provides education for course programmes XI, XII Arts & Commerce, B.Com, BBA, BCCA and BA. The society is taking every effort and looking forward to make KDM College a well equipped educational center of high standing exclusively for girls.
