Rohtas Mahila College, Sasaram is the brain child of the Mr. S.N. P. N. Sinha (then District Magistrate, of Rohtas district) who made phenomenal effort to assemble the educationists, businessman, bureaucrats, intellectuals and prominent citizens of the locality to a single platform to deal with the issues emerging out of the alarming rate illiteracy among the girls of the region. During the deliberation a consensus was emerged among them that the only remedy to this growing menace is to set up an institution catering to their interest who are largely marginalized and no longer contribute significantly for the betterment of society for want of formal education. His dream soon a acquired a concrete shape and Rohtas Mahila College Came into existence in the year 1975 on the 2nd of October to mark the birth anniversary of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi who himself championed the cause of women and ensured their active participation. Initially academic activity was carried out with 23 students and teachers which picked up gradually in the nest session with the number of students bounce to 150. A door to door campaign was launched to gear up the residents of locality to join the massive literacy drive and get the girls admitted. The campaign received a positive response with the   students making a beeline to get themselves enrolled. The administration too swung in to action allotting a small tract of land to accommodate the huge gathering acknowledging the long-awaited demand of students and teaching and non-teaching fraternity as well. Initially the college had to face huge financial crunch to erect a building on the tract land allotted to it to meet the growing demand of the students. An appeal was made to the people to contribute generously for this noble cause.
