Consequent upon submission of the proposal by K.J. Somaiya Trust, Vidya Vihar, Mumbai for establishing a Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha at its campus with the offer of
allotting one acre of piece of land for construction of the building, a committee appointed

its constituent Vidyapeetha there. The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of
India was kind enough to concure in the recommendations of the committee vide the
decision taken on 31-3-2002.

existing built up structure for the classes until the construction of building of the Campus is
complete. The Sansthan has taken possession of the allotted land of one acre from the
lessor Somaiya Trust. On the auspicious day of 16th May, 2002, the then Hon ble Minister
