Old Dalians' Association (ODA) is the alumni association of The Daly College (DC), Indore. DC is one of the most coveted public schools of India, having a great history of its own.
The story commences from 1870 when the institution was named as the Residency School. It was then renamed as the Rajkumar College in 1876, and in 1882, it came to be known as The Daly College. It was established by the Resident Governor of the erstwhile Presidency, for the children of Royal families in India. Since then, the school has been a premier educational institute with all modern facilities, having more than 2,000 students from different walks of the society. The DC campus spreads over a huge area of 118 acres in one of the most exclusive areas in Indore, and now, also has a Business School under its umbrella - Daly College Business School (DCBS). You could get more details from the school’s website www.dalycollege.org.

There are various other events throughout the year, at different locations, with a majority of them being at the DC campus in Indore. However, ODA is actively moving out to hold various meets & events in other cities and countries, the latest examples being the ODA Get-togethers in Dubai, Jaipur, & Mumbai !
The ODA motivates its fresh members to join the mainstream activities, and encourage new membership (their batch-mates & other Dalians who may not have joined ODA). New membership form is available on this website, and we request those Old Dalians who have still not enrolled as members, to be a part of the ODA family at the earliest. Click Here to go to registration page.
It is also our commitment to assure communication to the members of ODA and make it more regular and convenient so that you are well informed of the activities at your school and at the ODA. We are also issuing IDENTITY CARDS to the ODA members. For this, we need your correct/updated details. We therefore request you to kindly fill the UPDATE FORM available on the website, updating your address and other contact details, and return it to The Principal, The Daly College, Indore, along with TWO PHOTOGRAPHS.
It will come in its new format and will be printed once every two months. We would request you to kindly send us more information on personal, professional, academic, and/or sports achievements, or marriage, or any other details which you would like to share with fellow Old Dalians. The information may be sent to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or post, so that the same can be printed in the next ODA newsletter. We request your kind participation in person and contribute by giving us your valued suggestions to pursue and accomplish our common goal of enhancing the ODA. Kindly send in your suggestions by post to The Daly College or through email at email@example.com. Our goal will be best achieved when we activate regional chapters of the ODA and bring everyone together with maximum enthusiasm.
We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Sumer Singh, Principal, The Daly College, for his guidance and support in creating this website. We are thankful to all our committee members for their kind co-operation.
