MDU Rohtak



Maharshi Dayanand University, ab initio established as Rohtak University, Rohtak, came into existence by an  Act No. 25 of 1975 of the Haryana Legislative Assembly in 1976  with the objective to promote inter-disciplinary higher education and research in the fields of environmental, ecological and life sciences. It was rechristened as Maharshi Dayanand University  in 1977 after the name of a great visionary and social reformer, Maharshi  Dayanand.  It had a unitary and  residential
character in its nascent stage, but became an affiliating  University in November 1978. The University secured the recognition of University  Grants Commission – the higher education regulatory body of India - for central Govt. grants in  Feb. 1983. The University is located at Rohtak in the state of Haryana  - about 75 kms from Delhi on Delhi-Hisar National Highway (NH-10), and  is about 240 kms from Chandigarh,  the State Capital.
