Mission Objective : Development of a Complete Man

Interpretive Structural Model for DEI

Revered Professor P.S. Satsangi Sahab, during His tenure as the Director of DEI, utilized concepts from Applied Systems Engineering to elucidate the relationship between the Aims and Objectives of DEI’s Education Policy, the Educational System of DEI and DEI’s Organization elements that lead to the development of a complete Man.

He identified 93 elements spred over Aims and Objects of DEI (30), Educational System of DEI (33) and DEI’s Organisation (30) and developed a hierarchical structure depicting these elements in the form of an Interpretive Structural Model.

The Mission Objective, i.e., development of a Complete Man, is at the top of the structure as shown in the Figure. The Organisation elements such as Students Participation, Remedial Teaching, Interface for Learning, Access to Field Experience, Training and Motivation of Staff etc. are shown at the grass root level in the Figure. The Educational System that has been designed to acheive the development of the Complete Man is shown in the middle layer.

Any student who joins the undergraduate programme in DEI has to perform not only Intellectual activities but also take part in Physical and Social Activities through Foundation Courses, Field Experience (Work Experience), Rural Development, Limited Specialisation etc.

Differnt educational activities lead to not only Academic Objectives but also inculcate Moral and Spiritual Values and develop Social Sensibilities among the students. High Performance Standards, Fundamentals and Continuous Assessment in the Educational System lead to ‘Quality’.

The model thus depicts how organisation policy elements in DEI are put together to create an educational system that leads to the attainment of the Aims and Objects and finally results in the Development of a Complete Man.

Vision 2031

The Dayalbagh Educational Institute has embarked upon a bold initiative, VISION 2031 and formulated a comprehensive and progressive Strategic Plan for 2012-2031, with the goal to become a top teaching-cum-research Institute through an exemplary system of education. To establish Total Quality Management across all activities of the University, the Plan encompasses undergraduate and postgraduate education, research, infrastructure, information and communication technology and campus development.

Keeping in line with the Institute’s unique scheme of innovative, comprehensive, inter-disciplinary and value-based education that fosters academic excellence with holistic development, the Strategic Plan is a road map for providing an environment to produce well-rounded students who are ready to take on challenges and be leaders with a fine blend of top quality academics, work-experience and a strong value system.

The Strategic Plan is action-oriented and embodies the spirit of “Why not?” It will be implemented in four phases, each of five years, with clear targets set for each phases.

The Institute has accepted this challenge and is confident of acheiving success with the cooperation of faculty, staff, students, alumni and all other well-wishers.


Founded as a primary school in 1917, and becoming a technical college in 1927 for training in automobile, electrical and mechanical engineering, it later developed into a Deemed University. Prof. M. B. Lal Sahab, a former Vice Chancellor of the Lucknow University, founded this institution and was also the first director of DEI.

The foundation of DEI goes back to 1917, with the foundation of Radhasoami Educational Institute. Soon after Dayalbagh was founded in 1915, the Radhasoami Satsang Sabha started the Radhasoami Educational Institute, as a co-educational Middle School, open to all, on 1 January 1917 administered by a Managing Committee registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860. The institute got divided and also spawned new institutions. Within six months, it was raised to the level of a High School; Intermediate classes were started in 1922; it became a Degree College in 1947, with the introduction of B.Com. classes affiliated to Agra University; B.Ed. (B.T.) classes were added in 1951 and the first batch of B.Sc. students was sent up for the final examination in 1955.

A Technical School, which later developed into a College, was started in 1927 for imparting training in automobile, electrical and mechanical engineering, leading to the award of diploma in the concerned branch of the Board of Technical Education, U.P. The Leather Working School, started in 1930, gives instructions in both theory and practice for manufacture of leather goods.

To further the cause of women’s education, Prem Vidyalaya was started in 1930. It is now an Intermediate College. The Women’s Training College was established in 1947 for B.A. and B.Ed. classes. M.Ed. classes were added in 1958. M.A. in Psychology, English and Hindi in 1969 and M.A. (Music) in 1976. Engineering College, affiliated to Agra University, for the degree of B.Sc. (Engineering), was the latest (1950) addition to the chain of educational institutions in Dayalbagh.

Dayalbagh Educational Institute was registered as a body in 1973, which integrated and brought under one umbrella all the educational institutions of Dayalbagh, including the School of Comparative Study of Religion, the School of Languages and the School of Art and Culture.

In 1981 the Ministry of Education, Government of India, conferred the status of an institution deemed to be a University on the Dayalbagh Educational Institute, to implement the new program of undergraduate studies.

In 2002, Professor Sant Saran Bhojwani, a plant embryologist and plant tissue culturist, took over as the Director of DEI.
