The D.A.V. College Managing Committee, familiarly known as DAVCMC, is a non-governmental educational organisation in India and overseas with over 900 schools.[2] 75 colleges and a university. It is based on the ideals of the religious and social reformer, Swami Dayanand Saraswati. The Dayanand Anglo-Vedic education system also comprises colleges offering graduate and post-graduate degrees in various areas of study all over India.

Founded in 1886 in Lahore by the efforts of Mahatma Hansraj in the memory of Swami Dayanand Saraswati, these schools are run by the Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College Trust and Management Society, also commonly known as the Dayanand Anglo-Vedic Education Society.[3][4][5] It holds the record for producing the largest number of CBSE (class Xth and XIIth) toppers as a single institution in the last 10 years.[citation needed] Today, institutional records of the D.A.V. College Trust and Management Society are part of the archives at the Nehru Memorial Museum & Library, at Teen Murti House, Delhi.[6]


English is the primary language of instruction, with students also receiving compulsory education in Hindi and Sanskrit or a regional language. Presently, the DAV movement has grown to become the single largest non-governmental educational society in the country, managing 750+ educational institutions, apart from D.A.V. Public Schools spread over the country and even in foreign lands, with an annual budget of more than INR ₹2 billion. It employs 50,000+ people and educates more than 20 lakh students every year.


In 2013,The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) awarded 40 institutions for its exemplary contribution to quality education for an employable workforce to harness its demographic dividend and to cater the need of industry. ASSOCHAM awarded DAV College Managing Committee with 'Best Chain of Schools in India' award.[7]

Lala Lajpat Rai was among the founders of the national D.A.V. College Managing Committee.[8] 1885 the first DAV School was established at Lahore which was subsequently upgraded to become the first DAV College. In 1886 the DAV College Trust and Management Society was established and registered. The DAV Society visualized that the DAV Schools shall produce men and women of sterling national character and social commitment. The commendable objectives of the DAV attracted several committed individuals and groups to serve the society by striving to collect petty donations and gather humble resources to set up DAV Schools to spread Maharishi's message for enlightening all the Indians. Thus the crusade against ignorance, illiteracy, injustice and inequality was revived and it gained further momentum with the opening of each DAV School.

There are more than 75 colleges across India for graduate and post-graduate programmes.[11]
