It is because of the sincere efforts of His Excellency, Shri Rameshwar Thakur Ji the Vedic University was established.

T. Subba Rami ReddyHaving found that the said University was not established, His Excellency the then Governor of Andhra Pradesh interacted with various stake holders including Vedic Scholars, the Executive Officer, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams and other experts on this subject. The Executive Officer, T.T.D took steps to set up a Vedic University with the Ministry of HRD, the Government of A.P and various experts. This matter was referred to the Board of TTD on 10.03.2006 and the Board under the Chairmanship of Shri T. Subbi Rami Reddy resolved "to pursue action on the earlier resolution of TIRUMALA TIRUPATI DEVASTHANAMS Board to establish the Vedic University at Tirupati" and to come up with necessary proposals.
The Executive Officer, TTD as a first step held a meeting on 15.04.2006 to discuss the modalities for establishment of the Vedic University. The meeting was duly attended by eminent Vedic scholars, including the Principal of S. V. Veda Pathasala. This meeting listed out the following essential provisions that have to be kept in mind while deciding on various options enlisted for the structure of the proposed University.
1. The University should be absolutely an integral part of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams and all special provisions applicable for TTD shall become applicable to the Vedic University..
2. Provision for teachers who have been trained in their respective areas only through traditional education such as Ghanapathis.
3. As the posts of Vedapandits / Archakas are treated as unique posts in the TTD Establishment, the faculty of proposed University who are responsible in producing such Vedaparayanamdars etc. should also be treated as unique posts.
4. The proposed University will be dealing with subjects, which are purely traditional. As per tradition, there are certain restrictions on choice of studies. (For e.g. Training in Vaikhanasa and Pancharatra Agamas is restricted to only Vaikhanasa and Pancharatrins as per the tradition.) Provision must be made in the new University to uphold such traditional conventions.
