Its foundation stone was laid by the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Late Shri Chandra Bhanu Gupta. It was named after a devoted freedom fighter Baba Raghav Das who was a prominent Sarvoday Leader of this area and close associate of Mahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave. Initially the teaching started in government polytechnic and later shifted to college and hospital buildings under the dynamic leadership of Prof P.L. Shukla as first principal of this college. First batch of MBBS students was admitted on 7th August 1972. Since then this college has grown and now runs post graduate courses in various specialties.
