An off-campus girls’ college located in Janakpuri (since 1998), Bharati College has a lot to explore about. Founded by the Delhi Administration as Bharati Mahila College in September 1971, it started functioning from the premises of a Government Senior Secondary School for Boys located on Link Road in Karol Bagh. Initially, the College offered courses only in the B.A. Programme (then known as B.A. Pass) and a few vocational courses like Office Management and Tailoring & Dress Designing.
It has since expanded to include honours courses in English, Hindi, Sanskrit, History, Political Science, Economics, Maths and Commerce. Under DC courses, students can opt for Human Resource Development, Marketing Management, Human Development & Childhood studies and Hindi Patrakarita- Jansanchar. Part-time self-financing courses in foreign languages such as French, German and Russian and DOEACC level computer courses are also open to the regular students of the College as well as outsiders.
The college entrance has beautiful gardens to rejuvenate the mood, a huge sports ground for cricket, badminton, football etc. and parking facility is available inside the college premises for all. The building has three floors with an air-conditioned top floor. Auditorium and hostel building are under construction which will attract more outsiders. PG facility is available in Virender Nagar which is just opposite the college.
The college has well-equipped air-conditioned two-storeyed library with a separate reading section and computer lab. Special attention is given to differently abled students with facilities like separate parking area, washrooms, rampage, signboards and books in braille scripts. Canteen has food for all with rates that suits everyone’s pocket. Students’ don’t miss out the routine of walking to the canteen everyday to check the ‘special menu’.
The central lawn is the students’ favourite place to sit and enjoy. Being an all girls’ college the protective environment gives you the liberty to follow the latest fashion trends from suits to mini-skirts anyday and everyday. Our college has one among the best fashion societies, Elantre and various other active societies. Although an all girls’ college it provides great exposure and opportunities equivalent to any other college of Delhi University and will soon become a name in itself.
