Khalsa College for Women, Sidhwan Khurd, a premier educational institution nestled in the midst of lush green field and away from the madding crowd is aptly hailed as the ‘Shantiniketan’ of Punjab. It is one of the four educational institution run by Shri Guru Har Gobind Ujagar Hari Trust.
The Trust and the institutions came into being due to great personal loss suffered by the founder Bhai Sahib Bhai Narayan Singh Ji and his wife Bibi Ram Kaur Ji When they lost their son Kaka Ujjagar Singh in a mishap in 1908. Coming up from the huge loss by making the brave effort of starting life afresh, they devoted themselves to the task of educating their daughter, Bibi Harparkash Kaur. This resulted in the establishment of the Primary School in May 1909 with four students and then there was no looking back. The dedication, sincerity, hard work, commitment and the philanthropic spirit of the founder saw the Trust develop from a fledgling one to a fully grown organization under the able leadership of S. Dalbara Singh Sidhu who today, boasts of four educational institution holding aloft the lamp of knowledge.
The College came into being in 1950 and ever since its inception, it has been playing a commendable part in providing quality education to women, especially from the rural area. At present there are 1594 students on the rolls. The college is spread over an area of 18.75 acres. It has spacious buildings, well-furnished and commodious lecture halls, computer room with internet-facility and well stocked library. Since the College caters primarily to the rural areas, it provides hostel facility and has its own fleet of buses to pick and drop students coming from far-off places. The college also has large playground to provide ideal congenial and serene surroundings along with sufficient vacant land for future expansion.
Highly qualified and experienced staff under the seasonal guidance of the Principal and college management is committed to the task of instilling in the students the love for knowledge and not merely cramming their minds with information
