In the Medieval times, India witnessed many social evils. Lack of education was one of the major reasons for a slow progress. It was realized by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati that salvation lay in educating the masses. So he contributed to empower and enlighten the people of Indian society before attainment of Samadhi.
Later, Lala Lajpat Rai, Pt. Gurudutt Vidyarthy and Mahatma Hans Raj - a group of socially-oriented and enlightened Arya Samajis took the initiative of reforming the Indian society. They decided to establish an Education Trust to run schools and colleges to perpetuate the memory to this great man and his teachings. Thus, came into existence the DAV College Trust and Management Society.
In befitting memory of this great Saint Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati, the first DAV Institution (DAV School) was established at Lahore (now in Pakistan) on June 1, 1886 with Mahatma Hans Raj as its honorary Headmaster. The life of Mahatma Hans Raj is a saga of dedicated service and missionary spirit.
In these institutions, knowledge of science, technology and social sciences blended with Vedic philosophy is imparted in order to build personality of the children in the true spirit of the teachings of Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati.
The DAV CMC is the largest NGO in the field of education with a glorious past seeped in the history of the nation. At present the DAV CMC runs over 720 educational institutions all over the country. These include public schools, grants-in aid schools, colleges, professional training institutes and research institutes.
The DAV institutions are a progression of the movement started by Swami Dayanand Saraswati in 1875. The DAV management has been nurtured by a galaxy of illuminaries like - Lala Lalchand, Bhai Parmanand, Lala Dwarika Das, Justice J.N. Kapoor, Dr. G.L. Dutta, Prof. Suraj Bhan, Prof. Ved Vyas, Sh. Darbari Lal, Shri T.R. Tuli, Padmabhushan Shri G.P. Chopra and is presently under the tutelage of Shri Poonam Suri.

The DAV CMC aims to bring about a balanced and harmonious development in the future citizens of the country and seeks to infuse in them the ideals of Vedic culture and patriotism.
The DAV movement which started a secularist wave in the country was symbolic of unity among diversity and sought to cater to the diverse needs of education of the common man of the nation. It worked towards quality education and under the dynamic leadership of great mentors, the committees moved to glorious heights, carrying forward the legacy of its forefathers to establish a religion of education deeply rooted in Vedic values.
The DAV CMC reaffirms its commitment to education in the free style and democratic working policies of its visionary members. The vast amount of research and developmental innovations which is undertaken at DAVCMC is proof of its dedication, sincerity and commitment towards the progress of the nation. The committee has established the DAV Education Board in 1989 which seeks to prepare curriculum as well as other educational aids to ensure that all DAV students receive the best of knowledge and information and facilities. The innovation and techniques developed by the DAV Board have been successfully implemented in all DAV institutions. The current team of Office bearers under the able guidance of the Honorable President, Shri Punam Suri has streamlined administration by decentralization and achieved its objectives through meaningful consensus of decisions.This great organization is the backbone of a large institution like KHMS.
