Right from its inception on July 10, 2004, K.L.Bajoria College has been aiming at empowering the youth in such a way that they become, in the days ahead, the pride of the nation.
While offering Honours in several substantial disciplines, we keep in mind the need of the hour, and provide courses in Fashion and Spoken English etc. A large library with thousands of volumes and on line access is the right niche for curious minds. Books are bought ever year for all the departments.
The semester system at the Degree level, introduced in 2015, is running well under the supervision of knowledgeable teachers and able administrators. Our results so far, both in the old and the new systems, have been consistently good. Important occasions are observed, and the regular functions of the college are performed with aplomb.
“Campus Chronicles”, the college magazine, gives ample opportunities to students and staff alike, to hone their creative prowess. The Fashion Design Department keeps the college resplendent with displays of their innovative work. Our constant transactions with MACS keep the students well aware of health hazards and of their social responsibilities.

The College is co-educational and is sponsored by the non-profitable K L Bajoria Charitable Trust registered under the Indian Trust Act. It is a veritable example of National Integration, where students of different languages, castes, creeds and religions are treated equally with a spirit of tolerance.
