Why Study Here

Wholesome education for its students is something that Shyam Lal College has always stood for. But the college takes pride in the fact that it strives to play a much larger social role beyond providing quality education. A co-educational institution, it provides a 3% relaxation in marks to female candidates during admission with the intention of correcting the gender discrimination prevailing in Indian society. Further, the college is very much aware of the historical disparity that has existed in educational and economic development of East Delhi vis-a-vis the rest of the city. By imparting quality education to the under-privileged people of East Delhi, the college has made a modest attempt in filling this gap as well. The college also extends a warm welcome to talented students from other regions including the North-East, specially the states which are unable to provide access to quality education within their borders. Apart from that SLC offers 09 undergraduate courses in various streams of science, commerce and humanities and 01 postgraduate course (in Hindi). Two new courses have been approved by the University: Mathematics (Hons) and Chemistry (Hons), and they will be introduced in the College from the academic year 2017-18. The OMSP subject choice as part of B.A (Prog.) course offers the students an additional professional knowledge based opportunity that further improves their career prospects.


In terms of its connectivity to the rest of the city, SLC is one of the best connected colleges in the entire Delhi University. It has all modern means of transport including the metro, available right in front of the college. To assure safety and security of its students, the college has always been extra vigilant. Its recent initiatives in this direction include installing CCTV cameras at crucial points of the college. A proctorial board looks into various matters related to safety, security and discipline in the college. The Shahdara Police Station which is situated adjacent to the College campus also remains alive to the security concerns of the students and usually posts its officers close to the college to ensure that no compromise is ever made on these crucial aspects.


The college has undertaken a special initiative to make the campus safe for our female students, which is so very necessary to impart them with confidence to carry on their various academic and non-academic pursuits without any fear. To prevent the intrusion of outsiders – a potential risk for the safety of women – the college gives entry only to the valid students of the college consequent to checking of their identity cards. The college also maintains electronic surveillance over the movement and activities of individuals inside its campus. A committee for prohibition of sexual harassment is constituted every year with members from teaching and non-teaching staff as well as from the student community to take necessary measures so that incidents of sexual harassment are prevented in the first place, and for penal action in the eventuality of such incidents actually occurring. The college tries its best to extend this security cover to places around the College as well, and to achieve this objective, the College authorities regularly coordinate with other civic institutions including police and the women’s commission.
