Its alumni include Indian Olympians and the Indian Hockey team members, some of whom are recipients of the Arjuna award and Padmashri, and Hindi film personalities.HistoryShiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee’s Guru Nanak Khalsa College of Arts, Science and Commerce is among the earliest institutions of higher learning that emerged on the educational landscape of the erstwhile city of Bombay. Situated in the heart of the city, yet in peaceful seclusion, amidst idyllic centres of learning, the college has a majestic and aesthetically-designed structure and a verdant ambience. It is one of the few colleges in Mumbai to have its own sports ground. The College is one of Mumbai’s older colleges; it is permanently affiliated to the University of Mumbai and was accorded the UGC recognition under 2f in 1974. Its financial status is grant-in-aid.G. N. Khalsa was the brainchild of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who wanted to set up a centre or an institute in Bombay for higher education. In 1935 he put forth this proposal of establishing an educational institution for higher education in Bombay to the Sikh religious leaders at Amritsar. The Sikh leaders agreed upon this idea with their main objective of providing good quality of higher education and also to popularize Sikh culture in a non-Sikh State. Thus in 1937, G. N. Khalsa College was born in a plot where the college stands today, with the total area of 27, 642 sq. yards.
