To fulfill the local needs and promises of higher education, the Government of Uttar Pradesh
established a large number of degree colleges in rural and backward areas. In this way a new college was
established in the outskirts of the historical Kanpur city. This Government College was first and only
Government Degree College, directly controlled and governed by the Uttar Pradesh Government,
established in 1993 in a township known as Shivrajpur, in Kanpur Nagar district. Thanks must be given to a
trust named as Ram Sahai Trust, named after a freedom Fighter Ram Sahai, who donated 11.6 acres land to
UP Government. Thus the college is named after the Freedom fighter, social reformer and a local popular
leader Ram Sahai.Being a government college and due to its discipline, adequate building, grand sport
complex, neat-clean and green campus, teaching by well qualified teachers, fair examination system, Ram
Sahai Government College has a leading position among the colleges affiliated to Chhatrapati Shahu Ji
Maharaj University, Kanpur. It has its distinguished image and credit in the university.
At present the college is sprawled over 12 acres of land. In the beginning the college was started with
just four rooms in the premises of nearby intermediate college. At present there is a sprawling double storied
building consisting of classrooms, library, Administrative block, girls common room, laboratories, cycle
stand and various departments. A beautiful and large sport complex has been developed which has all the
facilities including 400 mts. track. The sport complex comprises of foot ball ground, hand ball ground,
