I strongly believe that health and education are the basic essentials of any living society. It is the utmost duty of the government to make these essentials accessible to all, free of cost. Education plays a very significant role in the holistic development of ones personality. An uneducated person remains ignorant and unaware of the concept of healthy body and healthy living. Education breaks this shield of ignorance and unawareness and is given preference everywhere. It is quite essential to have a widespread of free education, accessible to all, around the globe.
University College, Ghudda got established in the rural hub of Bathinda with the aim of making quality education, accessible to one and all. The purpose of such college was to make an affordable and cost-effective access to education in comparison to exorbitant fees charged by the private institutes.
