Maharaja Bahadur Ram Ran Vijay Prasad Singh College (M.B.R.R.V.Pd.SINGH COLLEGE), popularly known as Maharaja College, Ara is the premier and one of the oldest co-educational institution of south-west Bihar. The college was established on 13th September 1954 to meet the growing need of education especially higher education facilities in then Shahabad district after independence. The college becomes constituent unit of Magadh University, Bodh Gaya, Bihar on 1st February 1976. Later on, Veer Kunwar Singh University was formed after the bifurcation of Magadh University in October 1992 with headquarters at Ara. The college/university is recognized under the 2(f) and 12(b) of the UGC regulation.  It is quite evident that the Maharaja College is much older than the present Veer Kunwar Singh University Ara. The college is situated in the heart of Ara town (south of Ramna Maidan, Pin Code--802301).

       The objective of the college has been to educate the students so as to make them self-reliant citizens of the country imbued with the ideals of nationalism, secularism and the spirit of scientific temper.          

 The college mission is that our pass out students can gauge the uncertainties, calculate the probabilities and explores the opportunities for making their career.

        The emblem of the college visualizes the course of development of civilization –i.e. from darkness to enlightenment.

       ARA HOUSE - A national monument in the campus of Maharaja College is linked to bravery of the first war of Indian independence. With the glory of its national importance, the College strictly observes and follows the UGC norms and guidelines in imparting education in Arts, Science and in Commerce. To cope with the changing needs of society and economy, vocational courses have been introduced along with conventional courses. Remedial classes are also functioning in the college. It is worth mentioning that our BCA centre provides facilities and fulfilling the criterion for online examinations. The college provides large separate ground for sports and other such activities. We have active units of NSS & NCC.

     To prepare the College finally for NAAC, we owe our deep sense of gratitude to our Vice-Chancellor Prof. MD. Mumtazuddin for having guided us with his valuable experiences and ennobled perceptions. In fact he gave the base and foundation to weave our castle of dreams to get accreditation from NAAC committee with the sole objective to further improve quality teaching in the College. It is with meticulous care, spirit of sincerity and honesty that the College has undertaken an industrious exercise to prepare the Self Study Report (SSR) based on the facts and instructions as lay down by NAAC.

         Notwithstanding it all, the College is committed to provide an ideal platform to students to honour and cherish the values of life as enshrined in the Constitution of India to maintain social, equality, justice and feelings of fraternity among people of the country reposing faith in different religions and cultures. Besides, democratic freedom, tolerance and mutual respect for all religions have been the part of the academic ambience. 

            Since its inception, Maharaja College, Ara is catering the educational need of the society in a very smooth manner. The accreditation by NAAC would be a step further in that direction. Looking forward with warm regards for the peer teams visit to the college.
