Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU), formerly Marathwada University, is located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Republic of India. It is named after Bharat Ratna “Babasaheb” Ambedkar, an Indian jurist, political leader, academic and the chief architect of the Indian Constitution. This university was established primarily on the initiative of Babasaheb Ambedkar so as to fill the huge lacuna of higher education facilities in western Vidarbh, Marathwada and North maharashtra region.The university was established on August 23, 1958. This university has contributed to the progress of adjoining regions and people in innumerable ways.Since its inception, the university has around 404 colleges affiliated to it, which come under four districts (Aurangabad, Jalna, Beed and Osmanabad) of Maharashtra State. The student population exceeds 4,44,336.
There were nine colleges in Marathwada, listed below, all affiliated with Osmania University at Hyderabad in current Andhra Pradesh state. In response to demand of the public in Marathwada region for a university, the government appointed on 27 April 1957 a committee with the charter to provide recommendations regarding establishment of such a university. The governor of Maharashtra signed the Marathwada University Act on May 5, 1958. Shri Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, inaugurated Marathwada University on August 23, 1958 at Aurangabad on the premises of the temporary main building of the university.
S.R. Dongerkery became the first vice-chancellor. Affiliation of the following nine colleges was transferred from Osmania University to the newly formed Marathwada University:
- The Government College of Arts and Science, Aurangabad (established in 1923).
- The Milind Mahavidyalaya, Aurangabad (established in 1950).
- The People’s College, Nanded (established in 1950).
- The Government College of Education, Aurangabad (established in 1954).
- The Marathwada College of Agriculture, Parbhani (established in 1956).
- The Manikchand Pahade Law College, Aurangabad (established in 1956).
- The Government Medical College, Aurangabad (established in 1956).
- The Yogeshwari Science College, Mominabad (established in 1956).
- The Arts and S.B.L. Commerce College, Jalna (established in 1958).
In 1978, the Maharashtra Chief Minister, the state legislature and University administration approved the renaming University after B. R. Ambedkar. This decision was strongly opposed by Hindu community resulting in the anti-Dalit pogrom. The Namantar Andolan was the renaming movement raised by Dalits for 16 years. On 14 January 1994 the University name was renamed as “Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University”.
The university campus covers more than 725 acres (2.93 km2). The hills provide a picturesque background. The Aurangabad caves are embedded in the campus. The Soneri Mahal (Golden Palace), an ancient monument at the foot of the hills, is at the center of the campus, while Bibi Ka Maqbara is at the north side.
Knowledge Resource Centre is the main library of the University. The University library was founded in the year 1958 as the Varsity library. The University library houses some old books dating all the way back to the year 1600. Recently Knowledge Resource Centre subscribed to the World E-book Library through a Noida-based company, which will enable the students to access over 300,000 e-books including journals and other documents.
Coat of arms
The university’s coat of arms bears the following emblems:
- An Ajanta Arch with the university motto inscribed in its base. The arch is a symbol of the glory of the art of painting and sculpture which reached their acme in the Ajanta Caves.
- An open book lying on a book-rest, symbolizing learning.
- A sheaf of jowar, representing agriculture, the chief means of livelihood of the people of Marathwada.
- Two elephants, representing the strength of purpose of the people of Marathwada.
- A wheel representing progress.
The coat of arms may be regarded as fair representation of the aims and ideals of the university, which has been established among, people mainly devoted of the vocation of agriculture, with a rich cultural back ground and a firm determination to pursue knowledge and learning and at the same time to achieve economic and industrial progress. The motto affirms the inviolability of knowledge; a quality that abides is knowledge itself.
