Motivated by a devoted personality, Dr Banarsi Dass Soni, Ex.Capt.I.M.S. with a missionary zeal for medical education and patient care, conceived the noble idea of providing much needed medical care to the general public. This bloomed in the form of Arya Medical School in 1934, started in a rented building in Civil Lines, Ludhiana.
In 1936, management of the medical school was handed over to the Arya Samaj, Saban Bazar, Ludhiana, under the aegis of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Punjab. A separate Managing Body was nominated by the Managing Committee of Arya High School, Ludhiana and it was shifted to its own building in 1937 (now, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, College Campus).
The institution was recognized for LSMF (Licentiate of the Punjab State Medical Faculty) in 1938. The following year, the Managing Body decided that the Ludhiana Medical School should thereafter be called “Arya Medical School” and the hospital attached to it “Dayanand Hospital”.
It was only in the year 1964, consistent with the policy of the Government that the Arya Medical School flowered into a full-fledged MBBS College, which came to be known as Dayanand Medical College & Hospital. The management of this college was taken over by a galaxy of prominent people of Ludhiana, who formed an organization known as the “Managing Society of Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana” and Late Shri H.R.Dhanda, a prominent industrialist of the town, became its Founder President.
