Late Rai Sahib Sh. Kundan Lal ji was a self made industrialist, a man with a scientific
temper, who in association with great leaders such as Late Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru,
who involved himself in the freedom struggle.
In 1941 when our nationalist leaders were involved in the freedom struggle, the
visionary in Sh. Kundan Lal Ji was working towards the initiating of “Quit Illiteracy
Movement" in Ludhiana. With an avowed aim of infusing a spirit of patriotism and
nationalism among the students, he founded a school in 1941 at Daresi, in the heart
of Ludhiana city.
His diligent work and untiring efforts bore fruit and soon KVM became a leading
name in the educational circle. The increasing demands in the field of education,
made Rai Sahib set up another campus which is now in Civil Lines, Ludhiana.
Kundan Vidya Mandir takes pride in becoming the first school in Punjab to get affiliation
to CBSE in 1963.
After the death of Shri Kundan Lal Ji, a Trust and Managing Committee comprising
eminent educationists, industrialists and bureaucrats was established.
Spreading its wings further, KVM has set up its new branch named Kundan International
School in April 2007 at Chandigarh.
