Amity University was formed by Ashok Chauhan, the founder of the Ritnand Balved Education Foundation. It is India's first private university to implement reservations based on caste etc. for both faculty as well as students.[11] The school was started in 2003 with an enrollment of 120 students. In 2011, it had 80,000 students in 240 programs.[12]
