DOWN THE MEMORY LANE- 25 YEARS OF GOVERNMENT POST GRADUATE COLLEGE SEEMA (1988-2013)

The Post Graduate College Seema was established in year1988 with an aim to provide higher education to the students of this remote area. The college is situated at a distance of about 120 kilometers from the capital city of Shimla and six kilometers from the main Rohru town in a green valley formed by Pabbar river and is surrounded by the panoramic view of high hills and snow covered Chansal peak.The picturesque campus spreads over an area of about 50 bighas offers a sabulous climate and congenial atmosphere for higher education and moulding students into worthy citizens with sound character.
The College has adopted an ‘open book’ and the ‘rising sun’as its emblem. The open book symbolizes the learning whereas the rising sun symbolizes that education will lead the people from darkness to light, ignorance to knowledge; from unknown to known paths. The open book also communicates the message that the education shall be made available to all those who were deprived of it so far. Ever since its inception, the College has proved to be a boon to youths of this area and truly realized the visionary outlook  of the founder of the College, none other than Shri Virbhadra Singh, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh.

At the beginning in 1988, the College had only Arts classes. Subsequently in the year 1989, science classes were started and later on in the year 1994, the commerce faculty was also added to college making it an institution worth of catering the all round higher education requirement of the local community. In the year 2007, post graduate classes in the subjects of English, Political Science and History and five Add on courses in Functional English, Lab Diagnostic Techniques, Fashion Designing, Tourism &Travel Management and Marketing Management were also added to the existing range of courses. The year 2010 marked the beginning of the  professional courses in the college as the BCA course was started, which further culminated into the starting of PGDCA course and Foundational Course in Human Rights Education (HRE) in 2012.As such, the college which started with only one class i.e. B.A.I in 1988 has presently  running not only undergraduate courses in Arts, Science and Commerce streams and post graduate courses in three subjects but also professional courses like BCA,PGDCA besides four add  on courses, which the students can pursue along with their regular courses providing them an opportunity to adding vocational skills to their learning

With immense satisfaction it is observed that this college which started with a meager strength of just 16 students in 1988 as an undergraduate college has recorded steady progress and development and today in 2012-13 it is a full fledged co-educational post-graduate institution, the total strength at present is 1674 and has increased by a hundred times in a span of 25 years. When the college was initiated nobody must have even dreamt that the number of students will increase so many times and it would turn out to be such a prestigious institution in Himachal Pradesh.
Furthermore, the most encouraging fact is that this college has given voice to the once considered voiceless, section of our society. The number of girls enrolled has outnumbered the boys continuously since the year 2008 which clearly shows that the literacy rate of women is on a rise in our state and is a very healthy sign for the well being of women and the progress of our nation. The lasting change can only be achieved when women have access to both knowledge and resources, which leads to women empowerment.
Though we are proud of our many success and achievements, we cannot be satisfied by simply resting on our laurels. Indeed it is our mission to strive higher, no matter how many goals we reach along the way. This true and indefatigable spirit of lifelong progress runs through the very core of our college.


Principals  & Staff

The College progressed gradually under the dynamic leadership and vision of various Principals.
