The Nagpur University situated in Nagpur, Maharashtra is also called Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU). Named after Tukdoji Maharaj, the university’s history dates back to the times we didn’t even get our independence from the British Government. At that time the university had only 6 colleges’ affiliation to it and only about 927 students were studying in it. Since those times Nagpur University has been ever growing.
After about 40 years of its establishment the university got divided and some of its departments were shifted to the newly formed Amravati University. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has awarded it ‘A’ grade, making it authentically and publicly declared ‘among the good universities’.

With the introduction of inter-disciplinary courses, students have now wider choice of subjects they want to study in the university.
