Mata Sahib Kaur was proclaimed to be the Mother of the Khalsa and since then novitiates have been declared to be the sons and daughters of Guru Gobind Si?gh and Mata Sahib Kaur. Mata Sahib Kaur accompanied Guru Gobind Singh to Delhi after the battle of Anandpur Sahib and then on to Nanded. It was in Nanded that Guru Gobind Singh informed Mata Sahib Kaur of his time to leave Earth for his heavenly abode at which he commanded her to leave for Delhi to be with Mata Sundari. The Guru gave Mata Sahib Kaur 5 weapons as his reminder and his Insignia (with which she issued 9 Hukkamnaama's or Letters of Command for the Khalsa). Mata Sahib Kaur resided in Delhi with Mata Sundari and lived a life of Simran and Seva (selfless service) for the panth (nation).Mata Sahib Kaur died in 1747 at the age of 66 and was cremated at Gurdwara Bala Sahib, New Delhi.
Considering the needs of a large number of girl students from outside Delhi, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce has decided to develop hostel facilities in the name of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji. The hostel is located inside the college campus. With 42 rooms, it can accommodate the 126 undergraduate girl students of the College. Apart from the various facilities the hostel provides, every care is taken to ensure a comfortable and a happy stay for the resident students.
