Faced with problems relating to the staff in the period following the partition, the management of the college changed hands and the trust founded by Seth Kirori Mal took over. It shifted to its present campus on February 1, 1954. The foundation stones of this college were laid down by the first President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad in 1955.
