Government College, Mahendergarh initially came into existence as a private college, then known as Mahendergarh Degree College with the untiring efforts of Kanod Shiksha Samiti way back in 1966. The beautiful building of the college was constructed on 44 acres of land with the donation raised by the people of this region. The mission of the Managing Committee was to provide undergraduate education to the students of rural background of South Haryana. However, the Managing Committee found itself unable to run it properly because of the financial constraints. It did not want to increase the fee and also pay less to the staff. So they approached the Govt. of Haryana to take over its control. The Govt. acceded to the request of the College Managing Committee and thereafter its nomenclature stood changed to Government College, Mahendergarh on 14th July, 1971.
