Veer Narmad South Gujarat University:The South Gujarat University, located in the city of Surat has been renamed and is now called as Veer Narmad South Gujarat University. The renaming of the university occurred during the year 2004. This name is in honour of the famous scholar and poet of Gujarat, Narmad. One of the most respectable and recognized departments in the university (with new building and huge advanced computer lab) is Masters of computer Application - Department. It ranks among top five MCA institutions in Gujarat. Incorporated in 1967, this university offers postgraduate courses in various disciplines. Besides, this university has non-traditional postgraduate departments such as public administration, rural studies, comparative literature and aquatic-biology.
The need of the region comprising South Gujarat to have a separate university was voiced initially by educationists such as Atisukhshankar Trivedi who through public speeches and writings created awareness and gained support for this demand. This was immediately taken up and strongly supported by the Education societies of Surat and Navsari which already supported and managed colleges in various disciplines imparting both Undergraduate and Postgraduate education. Moreover, these were some of the most highly reputed academic centres under both the University of Bombay and the Gujarat University.
The outcome of these moves was that at a meeting of educationsists and eminent citizens organized under the auspices of the Sarvajanik Education Society in Surat on July 31, 1960 a committee of 38 members was appointed to draw up guidelines and principles for the establishment of a separate university for South Gujarat. This document was submitted to the Chief Minister and Education Minister of Gujarat.
When Dr. C. D. Deshmukh, the then chairperson of the University Grants Commission, visited Surat in December 1960, the same document was submitted to him. In February 1961 a submission entitled South Gujarat University : A Tentative Phased Programmed for its Establishement and Development was handed to the Education Minister. Further, at a meeting of this committee held in August 1962 a representational committee was appointed to explain the need, feasibility and urgency of the demand for a separat university for South Gujarat to the Education Minister. This committee popularly came to be known as the Lalbhai Committee after its Chairperson Shri L. R. Desai, Vice-Chancellor of Gujarat University who continued to chair first, the Evaluation Committee of 1964 and later, the Advisory Committee appointed under Veer Narmad South Gujarat University Act, 1965.
The passing of this Act and the Saurashtra University Act was the outcome of these concerted efforts which led the Gujarat government to accept it in principle in 1964 and to set up a ten member study team to go into the question thoroughly from all angles. In addition to the many general recommendations for the efficient and effective organization of courses and administration in the new university [to cover the distrcits of Bharuchm Surat, Dang, valsad (including areas under foregin domini which have or may later join this territory) ] this committee made very far-sighted recommendations for specific courses of study signally suited to the nature and development of the region. Among the course recommended were : Rural Studies, Microbiology, Forestry, Textile & Manmade Fibre Technology and Petrol Technology & Petrochemicals.
Such recommendations reveal not only academic acuity but also foresight about the directions in which the economic development of the region was to move and a sense of commitment to the geographical and occupational composition of the region under the jurisdiction of the new university.
After Veer Narmad South Gujarat University Act was passed by the end of 1965, in August 1966 the government of Gujarat appointed Shri Chandravadan Chunilal Shah as the first Vice-Chancellor and Shri Priyadatt Motiram Joshi as the first Registrar of the University. Thus the University was incoporated during the Third five-year Plan period.
A temporary office of the University started functioning on the premise of the Sarvajanik College of Education from August 18, 1966 which was moved to the Nonresidential Students' Recreation Hall of Sir K. P. Commerece College in December 1966. Around the same time, through the appointment of one office superitendent, one assistant accountant and one junior stenographer the office became fully functional. In July 1967 the office moved to the Khandwala Bungalow in Athwa Lines and it was here that the first academic departments of the Unievrsity became operational during the Fourth Plan period.
The construction of buildings in the planned university campus started during the Fourth Plane period. The administrative office of the university and the Central library moved to the campus in 1976 while the teaching departments moved to the campus during the period 1977 to 1981.

Media coverage of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, Surat Gujarat, Gujarat
Veer Narmad South Gujarat University answer-sheets found in Haryana!SURAT: Authorities at the Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (VNSGU) were shocked to receive a call few days ago from a person in Rohtak, Haryana, who claimed to have a bundle of answer-sheets belonging to the university.
The person said that he found the bundle of answer-sheets lying on the road.
At first instance, the authorities thought it was a prank. But, when the caller disclosed the details written on the bundle, the officials were convinced that it belonged to VNSGU. The authorities soon swung into action to find out what went wrong and how the answer-sheets reached all the way to Rohtak.
Collecting details from the caller, the varsity asked examination section to find out details about the bundle. Initially, the officials were not able to trace the institute to which the answer-sheet belonged. But during checking in detail it was found that the bundle belonged to a city college.
The authorities were nervous as the missing answer-sheets would have created a storm. However, investigation revealed that the answer-sheets were not of any recent exams but three years old.
To check from where the bundle went missing, we first collected the serial numbers printed on the answer-sheet to match it with our records. We were not able to match it and we were on our toes to trace the origin for couple of weeks, said an examination official.
It is impossible that answer-sheet bundle can go missing. We take required care in keeping them safe for at least two years after the results are announced, the official added.
The examination authorities roped in faculty members of the specific subject to provide information if they have any. The secret got revealed only when the entire answer-sheet set numbers were matched with the varsity records. After checking the records, we found that the serial number and subject does not match with any recent exams, said the official.
While checking three year old records, it was found that the answer-sheets were older than that period. As per the routine procedure, the answer-sheets were disposed off after the limited preservation time. The answer-sheets were given in scrap and later the scrap dealer must have sold it to someone in Rohtak and we believe that while in transportation the bundle fell out of the truck, said a senior varsity official on condition of anonymity.
