About Seth Chajju Ram

sethThe Chajju Ram College of Education, Hisar is one of the best colleges of education in Haryana. It was inaugurated on 6 April 1968 by the Governor of Haryana – Shri B.N. Chakravarti. It was the fifth college of education in Haryana.

As the region around the city of Hisar was educationally backward, the rural elite of the region, led by Justice D.S. Lamba (1929-76), decided to open a teachers’ training college for the rapid spread of education in the region.

We took a vow to start a college at Hisar in the sweet memory of our revered Seth Chajju Ram (1865-1943). To begin with, the Chajju Ram College of Education was allotted 200 seats in B.Ed.
The classes of newly established college were held in a wing of the old Jat High School building. It was built by Chajju Ram in 1929 in the memory of his son – Ajit Kumar (1905-13).

Having used this building for 28 years, the site of Chajju Ram College of Education has now been shifted to its own newly built campus, situated near the Akashwani Bhawan. The new campus is quite spacious and extremely beautiful. It then cost nearly Rs. 60 lacs.

Mrs. S. Randhawa, the wife of the Dean of Hisar Veterinary College, then took over the charge of Chajju Ram College of Education. She remained its Acting – Principal only for the session of 1968-69. Dr. S.S. Bhatia who took its permanent charge as Principal on 17 July 1969 and served the college till retirement i.e. 31 May 1975.

As far as the academic performance of the students of Chajju Ram College of Education is concerned that is perhaps second to none of any college of education in Haryana. Its students have topped in the annual exams of Kurukshetra University for ten times.

Dr. Ram Prakash, the P.V.C. of K.U. had once rightly said:”Chajju Ram College of Education has its significant place in the annals of Kurukshetra University.
