History
 
The College made its humble beginning on 15th August 1983 as an Undergraduate multi faculty co-ed college under the name 'Government Science, Arts and Commerce College, Balod. It was renamed on 2008-09 after the name of famous freedom fighter Ghanshyam Singh Gupta P.G. College. Initially Balod was under Durg district, but w.e.f. 10th January 2012 it is carved into a new district. The then, Government of M.P. allotted 40 acres of land for the development of College and its foundation stone was laid by the then, Honorable Chief Minister of M.P. Motilal Vora. The college got registered under section 2F and 12B of UGC Act in the year 1989. At the time of its inception the total number of regular students enrolled in the three disciplines i.e. Arts , Science and Commerce ,was only 219. From the academic year 1995-96 the Bachelor Degree Program in Law (LL.B) is also being run. In addition to it , at present, the college holds in its profile six Postgraduate courses namely M.Sc ( Mathematics), M.Sc (Botany), M.COM,M.A(Economics), M.A. (Sociology) and M.A. (Political Science) as well. Initially , at the time of its establishment the College was being run temporarily in the premises of the Janpad Bhawan and Government Girls Higher Secondary School Balod. Afterwards, in the year 1988, it was shifted to its new large campus of nearly 30 acres, situated beside the natural beautiful lush-green site of Tandula Dam on the Dalli-Rajhara State Highway. In the year 1998 and 2010 the College premises were further enriched as the construction of a separate Law Block , Library Building and Sports Department were also completed. After the formation of new District Balod the College has been declared as a Lead college for co-ordinating 13 other Government/Private Colleges. Having completed thirty one years of existence, the college has become a fully-grown –up tree. In this 32nd year of journey, in the arena of Higher Education , there are nearly 1800 regular students enrolled with us to fulfill their dreams and to explore the new frontiers of knowledge. Now this College is continuing its journey towards the all-round development of its students with the motto 'Tam-So-Ma – Jyotirgamaya' .
