The Akhil Bharatiya Sanskrit Sahitya Sammelan established a Sanskrit Vidyapeetha at Delhi on the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashmi on the 8th of October 1962 and appointed Dr.Mandan Mishra as the officer on-Special-Duty and the Director of the Vidyapeetha. In accordance with the decision of the Sammelan, a separate Society under the name of Akhil Bharatiya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha was established with the late Prime Minister Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri as its Founder President. The inspiration and guidance of Late Shri Shastriji had been the impetus for the development of this Vidyapeetha. Shastriji in his capacity as the Prime Minister of India declared to develop this Vidyapeetha as an International Institution.
After the death of Shastriji, the Late Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi accepted the Presidentship of the Vidyapeetha and declared on the 2nd October 1966 that the Vidyapeetha would henceforth be known as Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha. On 1st April, 1967, the Vidyapeetha was taken over by the Government of India and on the 21st December 1970, it became a constituent of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, a registered autonomous Society and was named as Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha.
Impressed by its performance and the all round developments, the Government of India, in March 1983 mooted a proposal to confer the status of Deemed to be University on this Vidyapeetha along with the Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati. Finally, after the necessary inspection and other formalities, the Government of India on the recommendations of the University Grants Commision, granted the status of a Deemed to be University to the Vidyapeetha in November 1987.
Prior to this, on the recommendation of the University Grants Commision, a Society, independent of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan was registered under the Chairmanship of the former Human & Resource Minister, Hon'ble Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao in the name of Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha on the 20th January 1987. In 1989 Dr.Mandan Mishra was appointed as the first Vice-Chancellor of the Vidyapeetha.
After the formal transfer of the movable and immovable properties followed by the transfer of the teaching and non-teaching staff, the Vidyapeetha became fully functional with effect from the 1st November 1991 as a Deemed to be University.
During the last thirty-eight years, the Vidyapeetha has received the attention of great personalities, leaders, members of parliament, and legislative assemblies, industrialists and the general public as one of the leading institutions which stands out and out for the cause of Sanskrit literature and language. By organising 320 functions, coupled with several publications in the news papers and other means of communication, the Vidyapeetha has reached the expectations of the people in establishing the glory of the Sanskrit language. This has resulted in creating a general awareness which encouraged many volunteers to come forward to work in this direction. It is indeed a great pleasure that being attracted by the achievements of the erstwhile Vidyapeetha, our dynamic leader, the former Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi in her message hailed the contributions made by the Vidyapeetha in the field of Research and Publications and also the role of Vidyapeetha in the cultural awakening.
A special convocation of this Deemed to be University was organised on the 3rd of December,1993 at Rashtrapati Bhawan in which Honoris causa of the University was conferred on Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, the Hon'ble President of India. The first convocation of the University was held on February 15, 1994 in the premises of the Vidyapeetha. In this occasion the Hon'ble President Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma delivered his convocation address. The second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth convocations of the Vidyapeetha were held on the 11th January 1996, 11th January 1999, 11th February 2000. 28th February 2001. The Sixth Convocation of the Vidyapeetha was held on the February 18, 2002. on the auspicious day of Vasanta Panchami and on this occasion, Prof. Hari Gautam, Chairman of the University Grants Commission delivered his convocation address respectively on 11th November, 2003, the Seventh Convocation of the Vidyapeetha was held. Prof. Ramaranjan Mukherjee former Chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati delivered the convocation address on this occasion. After completing the tenure of ten years of his dedicated service, Prof. Vachaspati Upadhyaya, was appointed third time as the Vice-Chancellor of the Vidyapeetha by the Govt. of India on the15th of November 2004 under whose able guidance this Vidyapeetha has successfully been advancing well with courses specially suited to the national and the social needs of the country by fulfilling its aims and objectives.
The working of the Vidyapeeth was applauded by the Xth five year Plan Review Committee constituted by the U.G.C. which has appreciated its performance and progress in the following words:-
"The working of the university is in general commendable. The teaching faculty is academically sound and is actively engaged in imparting knowledge. The students also are actively participating in the processing of learning. Supporting theoretical knowledge with practical observations and experimentations with the use of observatory and similar other devices is one of the distinct features of education in this university. The publications of the university also represent the substantial research activity going on in the campus. Lack of space for conducting classes is one of the major problems faced by the teachers in this university. The academic block under construction can, however, solve the problem to some extent. "
