MCRPV Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Vishwavidyalaya About Us

Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Vishwavidyalaya, Bhopal, was set up by Act Number 15 of 1990 of the Legislative Assembly of Madhya Pradesh. The University is named after Makhanlal Chaturvedi, a renowned Freedom Fighter, Poet and Journalist.

MCRPV was formally inaugurated by Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, the then Vice President of India, on 16th January, 1991.

MCRPV University is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities and the Association of Indian Universities ( AIU ).

It is not an Open University providing Distance Education. It does not provide education through correspondence.

It is not a Conventional University having limited territorial jurisdiction. It has jurisdiction through out the country. Consistent with the recent trend of globalisation and internationalisation of education, the University is imparting education outside the country also.

Makhanlal Chaturvedi University aims at developing excellent professionals with social commitment.

MCRPV Bhopal imparts education through :-

  • Its Teaching Departments at Bhopal
  • Its campuses at Noida, which is now for all practical purposes, a part of Delhi; and at Khandwa
  • Network of Study Institutes spread over the whole country

These Study Institutes are run by non – profit Societies & Trusts which are registered under the relevant laws.

The relationship between the Makhanlal Chaturvedi University and its Study Institutes comes closest to, and can be best described as, that existing between a Conventional University and its Affiliated Colleges.

That is why;

  • The MCRPV University prescribes norms for infrastructure, qualifications and number of faculty, eligibility for admission of students, norms of admission of students on merit, curriculum, number of teaching days ( at least 90 days per Semester ), minimum number of hours for Class Room – teaching, Laboratory and Practical Work per week, attendance required ( 75% ) for students to be eligible to appear at the University examination and for other matters for which a Conventional University ordinarily prescribes norms for its affiliated colleges.
  • The Makhanlal Chaturvedi University conducts examinations in a fair, strict and credible manner.

Study Institutes which run Diploma Courses only are called Registered Study Institutes. Those which offer Degree and Post Graduate Courses are called Associated Study Institutes.

Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Vishwavidyalaya MCRPV registers or associates a Study Institute only if inspection by competent and trustworthy professionals finds it adhering to the prescribed norms or having potential to come up to these norms, within a reasonable period.

Continued observance of prescribed norms is ensured through both regular and systematic inspections, and surprise inspections.

Curricula for Courses of the MCRPV University are designed and regularly updated jointly by eminent academics and professionals which have to be strictly followed by all Study Institutes and their students.

To promote holistic development of the personality of the students, to provide a platform to nurture and present artistic, literary and sports talents and to develop a feeling of fraternity and camaraderie amongst the students of the Makhanlal Chaturvedi University, inter – Study Institutes, inter-Zonal and National level cultural and sports meets are organised.
