It is because of the sincere efforts of His Excellency, Shri Rameshwar Thakur Ji the Vedic University was established. He, soon after assuming charge as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh in January, 2006, desired to know the status of the functioning of the Vedic University at Tirupati which was expected to be established according to the decision taken by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams Board in 1992. Having found that the said University was not established, His Excellency the then Governor of Andhra Pradesh interacted with various stake holders including Vedic Scholars, the Executive Officer, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams and other experts on this subject. The Executive Officer, T.T.D took steps to set up a Vedic University with the Ministry of HRD, the Government of A.P and various experts. This matter was referred to the Board of TTD on 10.03.2006 and the Board under the Chairmanship of Shri T. Subbi Rami Reddy resolved "to pursue action on the earlier resolution of TIRUMALA TIRUPATI DEVASTHANAMS Board to establish the Vedic University at Tirupati" and to come up with necessary proposals.
The Executive Officer, TTD as a first step held a meeting on 15.04.2006 to discuss the modalities for establishment of the Vedic University.
