In the decade of fifties, when access to higher education for women was limited by social factors, the State Government took the pioneering step of establishing a college exclusively for women in Raipur since 1958.
Rajeshri Vaishnav Das ji Mahant, Hon’ble Head of Shri Dudhadhari Math Raipur came forward to contribute a land parcel of 4.47 acres within city area for the establishment of the College, which has been named after his Hon’ble Guru and former head of the Math Rajeshri Dudh-adhari Bajrang Das Ji Mahant. Hon’ble Math had also contributed an amount of Three Lakh One Hundred and One Rupee along with a large parcel of cultivated land sizing three hundred and one acres to ensure adequacy of resources for the noble cause of women’s education.
The College had been initially affiliated to University of Sagar, and later to Pt Ravishakar Shukla University Raipur since 1971. The college has been granted status of Autonomous Institution since 1988, and recognized as a ‘’College with Potential for Excellence” in 2010.
In the Golden Jubilee Year of its foundation 2008, the first Woman President of India Hon’ble Smt Pratibha Devi Singh Patil blessed the Institution with her visit, which was a rare honor for any College in the State.
The college has the distinction of being the only Institution in the state chosen by University Grants Commission to establish a Centre dedicated to Women related issues in Chhattisgarh. The “Women Study Centre” has come into existence since April 1st, 2016.
Currently more than 3500 women students are enrolled in the College under various study programs ranging from under-graduate to doctorate level, in the faculties of Science, Arts, Commerce, Home Science and Physical Education. The campus is made accessible for differently abled people and a sizeable number of such students are enrolled in different programs.

Students of this College have received accolades in studies as well as in the fields of NCC, NSS, Youth Red Cross Society and others, and alumni could be found across the World contributing in various roles like academicians, bureaucrats, scientists, soldiers and many more.
