The brainchild of establishing a magnificent institution to be set up in his place of action, Kanchausi Bazar/Madhvapur, had already started unfolding in the heart of Shri Darshan Singh during his early years of life by the sweet inspiration of enlightening Maa Saraswati. As a result of this, his well-wishers and sons in order to materialise his brainchild of setting a college, established "Akhil Bhartiya Darshan Singh Shiksha Prasar Samiti" on 23rd February 1993 and got it registered under the University Grant Commission.

Shri Darshan Singh, a resident of Madhvapur, was an invaluable heritage of his father Pratap Singh who was a simple farmer. Shri Darshan Singh, born in such a simple farmer's family on one of the auspicious day in December 1924, kept on getting education related inspiration through his mother Shrimati Ranjit Kunwar who was a Vaishnav laureate and highly spiritual in nature. His wife and life partner, Shrimati Kanak Rani, dutifully kept on inspiring him for the establishment of the educational institution he had in mind. The strong support of his able sons Shri Devendra Singh "Bhole" (ex-minister), Gajendra Singh, Rajendra Singh and Jeetendra Singh also inspired him to establish a college.

Shri Darshan Singh remained a supporter of the Gandhiwadi thinking: "Simple Living, High Thinking." He was a hardworking man, whose personality was enriched with trustworthiness, social-service, had excellent knowledge of agriculture and a friendly nature towards all. Suddenly and unfortunately, this great man passed away on 20th March 2003 with the wish of the college in his heart.

Akhil Bhartiya Darshan Singh Shiksha Prasar Samiti after duly deciding the responsibility and doing "Bhumi Pujan" on 14th May 2003 made Darshan Singh Smriti College; Kanchausi Bazaar related to Kanpur Dehat, a medium for imparting high education to the children of the poor settled in the rural areas. On 3rd of September, after getting the affiliation for B.A Arts section from Kanpur University, 182 girls and boys in a short span of time took registered admissions and confirmed their participation. This number increased to 483 in the year 2004-2005 and again increased to the number 924 in the 2005-2006 and this number was 1502 in the year 2006-2007. The number was 2000 in the year 2007-2008 and in the year 2009-2010 it was above 2500.

At present, the affiliation of the faculties of B.A, B.Sc.,M.A.,M.Sc. and B.Ed. & D.El.Ed. (B.T.C.) and admissions are the symbols of this college's progress. The credit of this progress goes to our dear, hard-working, high education harbinger, head administrator, respectable Shri Devendra Singh "Bhole" M.P. Akabarpur Kanpur Dehat, Manager Rajendra Singh "Raju" and the managing committee. This educational institution is an invaluable heritage of this area. It is the responsibility of the studying boys and girls to protect it and keep it safe.
