The year was 1972, the historic day 13 April. A seed was planted in Ashok Vihar, Phase-I. Today 43 years later the tree stands tall with its roots fixed firmly like a banyan tree and its branches sheltering many lives, spreading outwards to give succour to thousands every year.
The beginning was a vision and foresightedness of a dynamic and genius Shri. Darbari Lalji, the organizing Secretary of DAV CMC in 1972. Ms. Santosh Taneja, the Founder Principal nurtured the vision to fulfill the dream with a rare commitment and matchless dedication. The seed bloomed into a plant and sprouted tender leaves and fixed its roots. Starting from the scratch, the humble beginnings, of which each Kulachian is proud of, was in the Arya Samaj Mandir, shifting to tented accommodation at Ashok Vihar, Phase-I, with just 13 students and 3 teachers.
