Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Essay Topics

Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU), formerly known as Nagpur University, is a public state university, established on August 4, 1923 in the city of Nagpur in Maharashtra state in central India. It is one of the oldest universities in India and the second oldest in the state of Maharashtra, after the University of Mumbai. Named after Tukdoji Maharaj, its focus has been on teaching Indian languages like Sanskrit, Marathi, Hindi and Urdu besides other subjects like medical sciences, general sciences, arts, commerce and engineering. The university has been offering medical degrees since 1947. The university was divided and some of its facilities were rededicated to the creation of the Amravati University on May 1, 1983. To reduce the load of administering a large number of colleges under it, the university was again divided to create the Gondwana University, in September 2011. It is a member of the Association of Indian Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.[1] It has been accredited with the 'A' grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), New Delhi. It is now labeled as one of the best universities in the country due to its strict assessment and extremely high standards of academia. It has also been ranked among some of the top Universities in India.

Jurisdiction

Initially the university had a jurisdiction extending over 11 districts of eastern Maharashtra particularly called Vidarbha. With the establishment of Amravati University in Amravati in 1983, the jurisdiction was restricted to six districts : Nagpur, Wardha, Chandrapur, Gadchiroli, Bhandara and Gondia. Out of these, two districts - Chandrapur and Gadchiroli are attached to the Gondwana University established in September 2011.

History

The Nagpur University was established on 4 August 1923 with six affiliated colleges and 927 students. During 1947, the number of students increased to about 9000 accompanied by the improvement and diversification of curricula and expansion in the range of subjects. The expansion of library and sports facilities occurred during these years for the intellectual and physical well being of the students.

It was in 1958 that some new Departments in Arts and Social Science faculties were opened; the major expansion, however, came in 1963 when several science and other teaching Departments were started. The Departments were shifted to spacious buildings in the main campus in 1972-73. In later years, several career oriented courses have been started viz., Business Management, Fine Arts, Mass Communication, Library Science, Physical Education, etc. In 2011 the university was again divided to part way for the Gondwana University.

RSTM University Campus

Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU), formerly Nagpur University, is a public university, established on 4 August 1923 in the city of Nagpur in Maharashtra state in central India. It is one of the oldest universities in India and the second oldest in the state of Maharashtra, after the University of Mumbai. It is named after RashtrasantTukdoji Maharaj, a renowned spiritual leader, orator, and musician from Vidarbha. The university is a member of the Association of Indian Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.[1]

History[edit]

The University was established as Nagpur University on 4 August 1923 with six affiliated colleges and 927 students. By 1947, the number of students had increased to about 9,000 and significantly more course subjects were offered at the University[citation needed]. The library and sports facilities were also expanded during these years. In 1958, some new departments in arts and social science were opened within the university, and in 1963, several additional science teaching departments were added. These departments were moved to buildings on the main campus in 1972 and 1973. More recently, several career-oriented courses have been introduced in fields such as business management, fine arts, mass communication, library science, physical education, and more. In May 1983, the University was divided to form Amravati University. In 2005, the university was renamed Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, and in September 2011 the university was again divided to create the Gondwana University.

Jurisdiction[edit]

Initially, the university had a jurisdiction extending over 11 districts of eastern Maharashtra called Vidarbha. With the establishment of Amravati University in Amravati in 1983, the jurisdiction was reduced to six districts of Nagpur, Wardha, Chandrapur, Gadchiroli, Bhandara and Gondia. Out of these, two districts Chandrapur and Gadchiroli were transferred to the Gondwana University established in September 2011. Since then, the university has jurisdiction over districts of Nagpur, Wardha, Bhandara, and Gondia.

Campus[edit]

The university has two campuses:

  • The old campus near Maharajbagh zoo established in 1923, serving as the administrative block
  • The new campus near Futala Lake, which is much larger and houses the different departments

Faculties and Departments[edit]

The university is composed of the Faculties of Arts & Humanities, Science, Social Sciences, Home Science, Medicine, Commerce, Education, Engineering & Technology, Law, and Ayurveda consisting of 39 Postgraduate teaching departments (PGTD) and three constituent colleges (the Law College, College of Education, and the Laxminarayan Institute of Technology).[2] The departments and college buildings are spread over seven campuses with an overall area of 327 acres. There are 842 colleges affiliated to the university in the districts of Nagpur, Wardha, Bhandara, and Gondia in the state of Maharashtra.[3]

Research[edit]

The research programs in almost all thirty-nine departments and three colleges are made up of M. Phil., Ph.D. and Post-Doc researchers.

Library[edit]

The Bhausaheb Kolte Library (Main library) was constructed in 1923 in order to cater to the academic and research needs of the faculty and students. Earlier, the library had been housed in the main university building itself. The foundation stone of the building was laid on 29 March 1954. The building was designed to have two floors with a total floor area of 57,480 sq.ft. and to provide a stacking capacity in 4 tiers to hold 3,50,000 volumes approximately, and accommodate 250 readers in general. The work commenced and it took almost three years to complete the construction of the building and the university library shifted to its new premises in July 1957.

The P. V. Narasimha Rao Library (the campus library) was inaugurated on 5 December 1978. A large number of volumes and the manuscript section of the main library was transferred to the campus library.
