Banasthali University was the vision of eminent social activist, Pandit Hiralal Shastri . Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi ideas and philosophy, he resigned from the prestigious post of Secretary in the Home and Foreign Department in the erstwhile Jaipur Princely State and decided to work for the upliftment of the people of the region. For this he choose what was then a remote village named Banthali.
The untimely death of his daughter, Shanta Bai convinced Pandit Shastri of the need to work for the issues of women empowerment and education. This lead to the start of small school which was later renamed as the Banasthali Vidyapith in 1943. The institution was elevated to the status of a deemed university by the UGC in 1983.
The institute which has been accreditated with an “A” grade by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has grown from its humble beginnings to being the only women residential institutes in the country that provides education to girls from the pre-primary stage up to the Doctoral level.
