This established the MV College Trust and Management Society, which set up a network of such educational institutions all over India and abroad.The DAV Movement would not have achieved its goal, had not a young brilliant graduate - Mahatma Hansraj - The first Principal of the first DAV institution - offered his honorary services as Jeevan Daan', for 25 years.
