About Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapith, Varanasi

On February 10, 1921, Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapith (MGKVP) was established as Kashi Vidyapith and laid the foundation stone by Babu Shiv Prasad Gupta and Bhagwan Das.

It is one of the largest public state universities in Uttar Pradesh, with hundreds of thousands of students, both rural and urban. It offers a range of professional and academic courses in Arts, Science, Commerce, Law, Computing, and Management.
