Contribution To The Development Of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan :-


I joined as the Vice Chancellor of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan on 14.08.2008. As the cases for promotion of teachers under CAS were pending since long, I called the meetings of selection committees for for promotions under CAS as well as recruitment on vacant posts. Promotions of 24 readers in Sansthan to the post of Professor was approved by the BoM in its 20th meeting held on 29.6.2009. Fifty one teachers have been working in the cadres like TGT/PGT/ Junior lecturer in school grade in various campuses of the Sansthan. Initiatives were taken for conversion of all such cadres into the cadre of Asstt. Professor in UGC scale. As a result, 31 TGTs/PGTs/ Junior lecturers and Research Assistants, after screening, were promoted as Asstt. Professors in UGC scale.
During my Vice-chancellorship, the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan was awarded category 'A', by the National Council of Assessment and Accreditation (NAAC) Bangalore, the highest rank to be awarded to educational institutions by it, after the completion of the process of assessment and accreditation.
Mukta Swadhyaya Peeth (The Institute of Distance Education in Sanskrit) was established during my Vice-chancellorship. With due approval of the Distance Education Council (DEC), this institute is successfully running all the courses being run in the regular mode through distance.
When I joined as the Vice Chancellor, the Sansthan had ten campuses and 23 Adarsha Sanskrit Mahavidyalayas/ Adarsha Shodh Sansthans. I have taken initiative to open new campuses and create new Adarsha Sanskrit Mahavidyalayas/Shodh Sansthans. Sansthan now has eleven campuses and 25 Adarsha Sanskrit Mahavidyalayas/ Adarsha Shodh Sansthans. Proposals for creation of campuses at Palwal (Hariyana) and Kolkata are in active consideration. Proposals for consideration of some of the institutions as the Adarsha Sanskrit Mahavidyalayas/Shodh Sansthans are in consideration. The existing campuses have received a facelift being equipped with computer labs, language labs, girls hostles and other facilities. Construction works for the first phase in the campuses at Bhopal and Balahar (H.P.) were completed, and the construction works for the second phase at the campuses at Puri and Bhopal are in progress.
During my Vice-chancellorship, the Sansthan has organised three international conferences and more ten national seminars/conferences during the past four years. A number of International and national conferences and seminars were sponsored. The 15th World Sanskrit Conference, authenticated by the International Association of Sanskrit Studies (Paris) is one of the most prestigious events in the world of Indology. The 15th World Sanskrit Conference was organized by the Sansthan at Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi from 5th January to 10th January 2012. One thousand scholars from India and 200 scholars from 32 other countries participated in this conference.
I have established the following centres in the campuses of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan to promote extra-mural co-curricular activities -

I have taken initiative for The Centre for Studies in the Nāṭyaśāstra at Bhopal, the Centre for Research in Pali Language at Lucknow and the Centre for Research in Prakrit language at Jaipur have made significant achievements and have taken up several projects with a view to bring out authentic editions of all the important texts from the corpus of Pali and Prakrit literature.
The Centre for Studies in Nāṭyaśāstra has produced a number of excellent stage performances of Sanskrit plays that were invited for performances in National and international programmes. Centre for Research in Pali Language at Lucknow and the Centre for Research in Prakrit language at Jaipur and Centre for comparative studies in Pali, Prarit and Sanskrit at Delhi have taken several other important activities like All India Sanskrit Poet's Meet (Kavisammelana), All India Sanskrit Drama Festival and every year regularly. Sansthan has expanded its activities in the North East area and several national seminars and work shops during the past three years have been organised at Guwahati and Silchure (Assam), Dimapur (Nagaland), Manipur, Agartala (Tripura) and Gangtok (Sikkim). Even though Sansthan was having eleven campuses, there was no occasion for inter-campus meet of the students. I started inter-campus youth festivals and during five years of my term as the Vic Chancellor five Youth festivals have been organized at Puri, Jaipur, Guruvayoor, Jammu and Balahar (in Himachal Pradesh).  Around six to seven hundred students from all the campuses of the Sansthan have been participating in these youth festivals. I have also taken initiative to organize Inter-Sanskrit University Youth Festivals. The First Inter-Sanskrit University Youth Festival was organized in Guwahti this year (2013).
The students of Sansthan as a result of these activities have been participating in National level sports and all India youth festivals organized by the Association of Indian Universities and other bodies.
The number of students in campuses during the last four years has doubled or tripled. Now there are more than 5000 regular students in the campuses of Sansthan and more than 2000 students have registered for various courses under the Distance Education programme only this year (2012-13).
All India Sanskrit Elocution Contest and Shalaka pariksha have now attained international importance. The Golden Jubilee session of All India Sanskrit Elocution Contest and Shalaka pariksha was held at Ahmadabad. The exhibition 'Sanskrit through ages' was organised on the occasion of the 15th world Sanskrit conference.
The Rashtiya Sanskrit Sansthan now has all the potential to become a world class university. The proposals for conferment of the status of Central University/ Institute of National Importance through the act of Parliament, after approval of the Board of Management have been submitted to the MHRD. A comprehensive scheme for development of the Sansthan with budget estimates of 724 crores has also been submitted.
