Late Lala Nemi Chand Ji
1926 – 1993
The N.C. College of Engineering was the first institution established in the fond memory of Late Lala Nemi Chand Ji, a freedom fighter and an eminent social reformer of Bawal, district Rewari, Haryana. The other institutions established in his memory are N.C. Institute of Computer Sciences, N.C. College of Education and N.C. Institute of Technology.
Lala Ji was born in 1926 and was drawn in the freedom struggle at an early age of 15. He was associated with the Praja Mandal Movement, which spearheaded the struggle for the freedom of the country from the Britishers. Bawal was then a part of the erstwhile princely state of Nabha.
Lala Ji was expelled from school, arrested and imprisoned for distributing banned newspapers and for pulling down the Union Jack from atop the District headquarters building and burning it. He was kept in various jails of Punjab where he was subjected to most inhuman forms of torture and kept in solitary confinement in order to make him confess. However, nothing could break the firm resolve and determination of this young freedom fighter.
After the dawn of freedom Lala Ji launched himself into social work in the true Gandhian spirit. He was responsible for setting up of educational institutions and for starting a movement for the removal of untouchability. The college is a perpetuation of his quest for the educational upliftment of the society and particularly the unprivileged rural areas.
It is a tribute to him from his sons and heirs who have set up an educational trust named Lala Nemi Chand Educational Trust with the objective of realizing his dream into reality.
