A History Of D.P.Vipra P.G.College,Bilaspur(C.G.)
The year 1969 marks the beginning of college education in this area. With inspiration of Shri Rameshwar Prasad Sharma, Chairman, Laxamaneshwar Shikshan Samiti, Kharod and great efforts by Prof. Ram Narayan Shukla a night college in Bilaspur could be established. This college was affiliated to Ravi Shankar Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur in 1969-1970 and the College Education Department of M.P. Government also accorded its recognition. The college was inaugurated on September, 11, 1969 at the hands of the then Vice Chancellor of Ravi shankar University, Shri Banshi Lal Pandey, I.A.S.
Later as the result of strong demand by students, day teaching began in July-August 1970. Ravi Shankar University, Raipur accorded permission to change the name of night College and the College was called degree college, Bilaspur. A few years later- i.e. in July 1982 the College was named as D.P.Vipra College after the name of the eminent literary figure Pt.Dwarika Prasad Vipra Tiwari, ex-president of the college Management.
D.P.Vipra College has become a centre of attraction for the enlightened students who have great thirst for knowledge. Teaching in all subjects is being done by able, experienced, skill and learned professors.
