The dawn of Indian independence saw the emergence of a new star on the horizons of Delhi University-Jubilee Hall; the hall is not just another residence, but a premiere institution by itself, having a glorious legacy. Carving a niche for itself, it has given to nation a galaxy of luminaries who have excelled themselves at national as well as international fora. Spread over more than 10 acres, Jubilee Hall boasts of a rich infrastructure. The red brick building surrounded by sprawling lawns and colorful garden provide an idyllic setting for academic pursuit. Every year a rich harvest of Academicians, Bureaucrats, Diplomats, Economist, Judges, lawyers, and scientist emerge from its portals to enrich the texture of our nations public life.
