Bharati Vidyapeeth is a Deemed university and a group of higher educational institutions located in Pune, India. It was established in 1964 by Indian politician and educationist Patangrao Kadam. Bharati Vidyapeeth has campuses across the country at New Delhi, Navi Mumbai, Sangli, Pune, Solapur, Kolhapur, Karad, Satara, and Panchgani. It runs more than 78 schools and 60 institutions of higher education, including those of professional education. Among these are colleges of Medicine, Dentistry, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Nursing, Pharmacy, Engineering, Management, Hotel Management, Catering Technology, Environment Science and Agriculture etc. On 26 April 1996 the Government of India, on the recommendation of the University Grants Commission, granted the status of "Deemed to be University" to a cluster of 12 institutions of Bharati Vidyapeeth.


Bharati Vidyapeeth had a very humble beginning. It was around 1963, when he was still a part-time school teacher that Patangrao Kadam was disturbed on seeing that not many Maharashtrian students could get admissions to national level institutions such as National Defence Academy or clear competitive examinations. He noted that the reason was a relatively weak foundation of these students in subjects such as English and Mathematics. The organisation was founded with the aim to bring about "intellectual awakening of people through the spread of education" and to "prepare human resources needed for all round development, particularly economic, of the country". Bharati Vidyapeeth, since its inception, started conducting competitive examinations for school going children in the area. This subsequently became its major activity, which still continues.

Bharati Vidyapeeth had its inception in a small room in a remote corner of an old part of Pune City. The onlookers then could not understand the word "Vidyapeeth" (University) in the name "Bharati Vidyapeeth". In the span of 40 years, Bharati Vidyapeeth grew to conduct more than 156 educational units of various kinds, right from pre-primary schools to postgraduate institutions and a university. With a view to promote research and to create a research culture on its campuses, It has established five specialized research institutes in the areas of Health Related Sciences, Biotechnology, Information Technology, Applied Chemistry and Social Sciences. It is probably the only organization from Maharashtra having its campus in the capital city of India. Its schools and colleges have dotted rural areas and even the remote tribal and coastal areas of Maharashtra.[citation needed] The corporate office of Bharati Vidyapeeth is located at Deccan Gymkhana in the city of Pune. Its 10 storied building, once the tallest in Pune, is a landmark of the city.
