Manohar Memorial College, Fatehabad came into its pious existence on June 24, 1970. The college has been marching ahead on its uphill journey since its inception. It has since become synonymous with dedication, commitment and service to the community in this educationally and culturally backward region. It is universally recognised for its impeccable credentials of being a top-ranking and first-rate institution all over the state. It has left behind more than five glorious decades of its eventful history.
The college owes its emergence to the divine inspiration of Late Swami Gita Nand Ji Maharaj who counselled Late Mehta Khem Raj Ji Batra to found a college in the name of his only son Manohar Batra who had been snatched away by the cruel hands of destiny in his blooming youth while he had still seen only twenty one springs of his life. The college was approved in the first instance by the Panjab University, Chandigarh then to Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra and is presently affiliated to Chaudhary Devi Lal University, Sirsa.
The self-contained twenty acre sprawling campus is strategically located in the heart of the city on the National Highway in its green natural environs. It is well equipped with an extensive building infrastructure containing all state-of-the art facilities. The campus boasts of spacious and well-maintained play grounds for all games and sports. A U.G.C. sponsored three-storeyed Women’s Hostel with all modern amenities marks as a majestic landmark on the Campus. There are six ultra-modern air-conditioned laboratories of Computers and an English Language Laboratory. In addition there are Physics, Chemistry, Bio-technology, Home Science, Geography and Music laboratories with all the Modern facilities.

It was also a significant year on account of introduction of Science Faculty with B.Sc. in Non-medical and Computer Science. Simultaneously B.C.A. was also added to the courses of study during the same year.
The session 2009-10 further opened new avenues for our students as the Humanities Group was reinforced with two more elective subjects of Physical Education and Music (Vocal).
