In modern times, during the close of the 19th century, the Society for Propagation of Gospel of Christ (S. G. P. C.) successfully introduced the classes of higher learning in its schools in Kanpur. Gradually the demand for institutions for higher education in the fast growing commercial metropolis gained momentum. The Arya Samaj, Sanatandharma and other missions and denominational institutions opened such colleges under the encouraging patronage of the government.

After India became free, further studies were made in the field of education in Kanpur.

Even after the setting of these institutions the long cherished desire of the people of Kanpur for getting a university, a real seat of eminence and excellence which could co-ordinate and update the working of the different educational institutions, remained unfulfilled. In the mean time, several academic institutions with much advanced resources and expertise sprung up in different parts of the country. Education and Research has advanced by laps and bounds and Kanpur in comparison looked smaller than before, simultaneously an imperative need was felt by a vast segment of the population of Kanpur for an establishment of learning which could fulfill their academic needs and provide leadership in social, economic, cultural, and technical spheres.
The Radha Krishnan Commission (1949) suggested the establishment of a university at Kanpur as it was felt that the Agra University to which the colleges at Kanpur were affiliated was getting increasingly overburdened. In order to meet the popular demand and to reduce the burden of Agra University, Kanpur University was established by an Act of U.P. State Legislature in the year 1966. Since its inception the Kanpur University has made considerable growth both in the number of the colleges affiliated to it, and the diversification and varieties of subjects taught.

Swaroop asserted that although the entire case smelt of foul, no conclusion should be drawn until the probe was over.He also assured stern action against those found involved in carrying out casteist acts.
