Learned and diligent seers of Sultanpur felt that youth of our district may rise triumphant above every weakness if they would be liberated from the abyss of ignorance. With the aim of imparting such education that may develop human values- discipline, patience, devotion adherence, verity, self reliance, and self confidence, renowned Advocate Late Sri Bechu Singh & Late Sri Ram Sahai Singh with their indomitable will and co-operation of Kshtriya Educational Society laid the foundation of Rana Pratap Degree College in 1971.
Sri Ram Sahai Singh enkindled the flame of learning in Sultanpur as the first president of the college and Sri Narsingh Pal struggled as the Manager of the College and consequently made the light of knowledge spread in remote countryside. Presently the college is celebrating its 41st year under the prudent guidance of Advocate Sri Sanjay Singh as President and Sri Bajrang Bahadur Singh as Manager.
