Earlier when the proposal for establishing Vedic Board was presented by Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, it was rejected by the then HRD Minister Smriti Irani. It has been recently reported that the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has approved the establishment of the very first Vedic Board.

Last Month on January 11 the governing council of Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Vedavidya Pratishthan (MSRV), during the meeting held with MHRD and Minister of State for Law and Justice P P Chaudhary. headed by the Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, approved the setting up of Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) to adopt Vedic Education.

However, the Board bylaws were circulated by MHRD to the MSRVP members, instructing them to select a private sponsoring body to set up BSB.

Following to the notice issued by MHRD to MSRVP members, they decided to select a sponsoring body with a net worth of ₹300 crore for setting up the Board establishing Vedic Education. MSRVP has been reported to issue ‘Expression of Interest’ for inviting applications from the interested parties.

According to the issue of the draft, it states that applicants (company/trust/society) should have worked in the field of Indian traditional knowledge and should have been existed for at least 10 years. Along with that, the applicant should be willing to provide the largest funds for the development of the Board will be finally selected by MSRVP.

It was also reported that few of the MSRVP governing council members did not really approve the movement allowing private entities establishing BSB. Hence, ‘Expression of Interest’ will be issued only once after all members approve of it.

The entity which will be selected to establish BSB will be aiming at adopting ‘Indian traditional knowlege’ such as Vedic education Sanskrit education, Shastras and Darsanas and Bhartiya Parampara. Just like other boards, BSB will also constitute of the syllabus, responsible for conducting examinations, issue certificates, affiliate Gurukulas, Veda pathshalas, and new schools that offer a blend of Vedic and modern education.

The Proposal presented by the Yoga guru Baba Ramdev earlier was rejected by the then School Education Secretary SC Khuntia during the meeting on April 13, 2016, headed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi arguing that if this gets approved, other likely boards will also issue such requests following this one.
