PSB Rajkiya Mahavidyalaya Naughar, Lambgaon, Tehri Garhwal was founded by the State Government of Uttarakhand through the G.O.No. 2771/MHRD 2001 on August 10, 2001, with the aim of enhancing the quality of human resources in the remote hilly terrain of Pratapnagar Development Block in Tehri Garhwal. We take pride in being an ISO 9001:2015 certified institution, reflecting our commitment to maintaining high-quality standards in teaching, learning, and evaluation processes. Our institution primarily serves first-time learners, particularly girls, residing in the economically and socially isolated interiors of Tehri District, Uttarakhand.

Dedicated to the economic and social upliftment of our students, especially those from economically backward agrarian backgrounds, the college has played a pivotal role in bringing about a significant curricular reform. By providing higher education to the rural masses, with a special focus on empowering girls, the college aspires to make a lasting national impact.

PSB Rajkiya Mahavidyalaya Naughar is situated in the Pratapnagar Block of Tehri Garhwal district, within the westernmost region of Uttarakhand. Nestled in the outer ranges of the mid Himalayas, Tehri Garhwal boasts a unique geography, featuring low-line peaks contiguous with the plains of northern India. The district, extending from snow-clad Himalayan peaks to the foothills near Rishikesh, is marked by the Bhagirathi river, which seemingly divides it in two, with Bhilangna, Alaknanda, Ganga, and Yamuna rivers bordering it on the east and west. Neighboring districts include Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Pauri, Rudraprayag, and Dehradun.

Tehri Garhwal, lying on the southern slopes of the outer Himalayas, is considered one of the sacred hilly districts of Uttarakhand. Legend has it that Lord Brahma meditated on this sacred land before the creation of the universe. Muni-ki-Reti and Tapovan are revered places of penance for ancient Rishis, contributing to the preservation of the district’s culture. The district’s hilly terrain and limited communication have played a role in maintaining its cultural heritage.

A significant portion of Tehri Garhwal is characterized by hilly terrain, with fertile plains contrasting with less fertile plateaus. The district’s economy is closely tied to its rich forests, which not only contribute to its ecology but also its economy. The region is known for commercial wood production and the cultivation of herbs and medicinal plants. Efforts under five-year plans have been made to address past deforestation through afforestation programs.

Lambgoan, now a Nagar Panchayat since 2017, is part of Pratapnagar, one of the 70 assemblies of Uttarakhand State, and falls within the Tehri Loksabha constituency. Bhagirathi, Bhilangna, and Alaknanda rivers, with the Tehri Dam constructed on them, are the main tributaries of the Ganga in this region. The local river, Zirkle, is the lifeline of the area. The climate is characterized as subtropical highland or oceanic with dry winters.

Despite the predominantly agricultural activities, a significant portion of the male population regularly migrates in search of better income and a higher standard of living due to the inability of local agriculture to provide sufficient means of sustenance.
