The college was established in the year 1993 with undergraduate programme in arts and commerce faculty. In more than 14 years of its existence this college has made gradual progress in its pursuit of providing opportunities for higher education in rural area of Dhari. The strength of the college has increased due to good success rate.

The college has focused on its objective in imparting higher education to female child, providing them spiritual training through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and grooming their personality.

Though the college has affiliated status, it follows the rules and regulation laid down by the Saurashtra University, Rajkot as well as by the State Government of Gujarat. Some faculty members are in the Board of studies also, thus the college has partial freedom to make some changes in their curricula at U.G. level.

Within the constraints of the socio-economic milieu in which the college functions it is attempting to provide higher education and value based education to its students. The management is genuinely concerned to provide education to rural female youth. With changing times it needs to reorient the educational process to present and future needs and make concentrated efforts towards offering vocational and career-oriented programmes.

However, in view of the fast changing trends in recent times the college should make greater and extra efforts to fulfil the mission. This view in mind the peer team suggests the following points for future development of the college.

Technical infrastructure of the college is to be enhanced. Thus a central computing facility with Internet and Local Area Network may be set up for research and for use of students.

The office system needs to be computerised. For this it is required that all office personnel should be trained with computer technology.

The College needs to encourage teachers to attend National and International Seminars /
Conference to update their knowledge in their respective subjects.

The teachers of the college should take life membership of all India Level professional body of their respective subjects.

The teachers need to publish research papers in National and International journals.

Faculty members may be motivated to apply for minor or major research projects to funding agencies like UGC and ICCSSR.

The administration and college faculty may draw a plan to lay more emphasis on research and consultancy.

Considering the girls college it would be in the interest of the college and Dhari to establish a women empowerment call through which activities of feminine interest may be initiated.

For vocational training commerce laboratory may be set up to enhance information regarding banking, export-import-documentation and tax planning.

The college may also start short-term job oriented courses on mobile and telephone repairs and computer hardware maintenance.

Since the college in an all girls' institution, it may consider starting bachelor degree programmes in Home Science, fashion design, computer application and Fine Arts.

The college may consider to start Post Graduate courses in Psychology, Gujarati and Commerce.

The college should apply to appropriate authority to start M.B.A., B.Ed. and Law courses.

More books may be added in all subjects.

More journals / periodicals may be subscribed to the library. For the benefit of students and faculty the cataloguing work has to be done immediately.

A well-equipped English language laboratory will be useful to train students in communication skills.

The Career Guidance and counselling centre may be set up. Utilizing the services of psychology teachers the college may start psychological counselling for the students.

Alumni Association may be registered at the earliest. It can take active role in developing academic activities.

There is a need for a Physical Education Teacher in the college to motivate and monitor the students to take up Sports and Game activities.
