 Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar University,Agra To Be Renamed ‘Aambedkar University

New Delhi:  The Uttar Pradesh legislative Assembly passed an amendment to the UP State Universities Act on Friday. The new amendment allows the change
of the name of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Agra to 'Aambedkar University'. The name change has been brought after discovering that Dr. Ambedkar
has signed his name in Hindi on the Indian Constitution as 'Aambedkar'. The change was done on the recommendation of Governor Ram Naik.  On page number
 254 of the constitution, Dr. Ambedkar had signed his name in Hindi as 'Aambedkar'. The Governor had, at the programme organized on the death anniversary
of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, had said that Dr. Ambedkar's name is usually written as 'Ambedkar' which is wrong. He said that in the original copy of the constitution, he had signed as 'Aambedkar' and this is the spelling that should be adopted.
