Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Arts College (L.D Arts college) was started a decade before Independence with an aim to provide students with high quality education in British-ruled India. The college is now one of the biggest institutions in Ahmedabad, with a rich heritage for producing talented individuals every year. The institution still remains a preferred choice for arts students as it never stopped instilling moral values of life along with college education. The college is also the largest center for Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) in Ahmedabad.
