He was the first Indian Ruler to introduce, in 1906, compulsory and free primary education in his State, placing his territory far in advance of contemporary British India.
He attended the Delhi Durbars of 1877, 1903,1911. It was at the 1911 Delhi Durbar that Sir Sayajirao did not bow to the KingEmperor and this was considered disrespect to the throne by the British who almost derecognized him and he almost lost histhrone. Sayajirao was often in conflict with the British on matters of principle and governance, having continuous andlongstanding verbal and written disputes with the British Residents.
RailwaysIt was during his reign that a large narrow gauge railway network was set up in Baroda State which even to this day is the largest narrow gauge railway network in the world with Dabhoi at its focal point. Sayajirao envisioned a water supply scheme for Baroda in 1892 at Ajwa which would supply drinking water to the people of Baroda by gravity. To this day a large portion of Vadodara City gets its drinking water from this source.
Parks & UniversitiesThe large public park originally called Kamati Baug and now called Sayaji Baug were his gift to the City of Baroda. On the occasion of his Diamond Jubilee of accession to the throne, he set apart large funds out of his personal as well as the state funds for setting up a University in Baroda for the benefit of students from the rural areas of his state...... a task which was ultimately completed by his grandson Sir Pratapsinghrao Gaekwad who founded the Maharaja Sayajirao University and settled the trust as desired by his grandfather. This Trust known as Sir Sayajirao Diamond Jubilee and Memorial Trust exists today also and caters to the educational and other needs of the people of the former state of Baroda.

Sheshadri of the Benares Hindu University was requested to lay out a scheme for a University at Baroda • Prof. Widgery also submitted a scheme for a State University on the lines of the smaller German Universities
During this period , Her HighnessShrimant Maharani Chimnabai Saheb, the Maharani Gaekwad of Baroda, offered a princely donation for running a Womens University at Baroda. But as Sir Manubhai Mehta, the then Dewan of Baroda, pointedout in one of his speeches, “the time was not ripe then for idea to germinate.”
• the Setalvad Committee recommended the idea of regional Universities in the Province of Bombay1925 • The committee recommended that a University for only one region out of 4 i.e. Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Sind. Maharashtra was approved. • Dr. M.R.Jaykar and Prof. K.T. Shah two of the members of the Committee, had appended notes of dissent stating that Gujarat could definitely be considered ripe for a separate University. This led to a movement for a separate university for Gujarat. • Just about the time when the cry for the establishment of separate regional Universities was raised, the celebration of the golden jubilee of the His Highness the late Maharaja Sir Sayajirao Gaekwad were afoot in the Baroda State • This resulted in the appointment of the Baroda University Commission on the 24th September, 1926, with Prof. A.G. Widgery as Chairman
The Objective of the UniversityThe Government of Baroda and its people had for a long time desired to have a separate University of their own. The affiliation of all the institutions of higher education to a University situated far away was not conductive to the development of new courses of instruction suited to the needs of the region. It acted, on the contrary, as an obstacle. The main object of establishing the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda was, therefore, to provide a distinct type of University-a teaching and residential University which should have complete freedom in all academic matters and would be free to institute new branches
Structure of the UniversityHis Highness the Maharaja of Baroda is the Chancellor of the University. The Vice-Chancellor is the principal executive and academic officer of the University and is to be assisted in his work by Pro-Vice Chancellor or a Rector. The Senate is the supreme governing body and authority of the University and the Syndicate, its executive authority. Among the other authorities of the University is the council of Post-graduate Studies and Research which has to deal with all matters relating to instruction, training and research in the various subjects taught in the University. The other authorities of the University are the Faculties and the Boards of Studies there under, which are principally responsible for making recommendations in the matter of the course of studies, textbooks and generally on academic matters.
Structure of the University• The Act deals with the residence of the students and lays down that all students of the University should reside in the hostels of the University or under conditions laid down by the relevent Ordinances.

• The ABVP was started soon after independence with the objective of channelising students’ energies in the task of national reconstruction by a group of students and teachers who drew their inspiration from the RSS, the premier nationalist organisation of the country.• Its growth process was slow and sporadic in the first few years but it picked up after Prof. Yeshwantrao Kelkar, a lecturer in Bombay, became its main organiser in 1958. He was its real architect and builder.• The uniqueness of the Parishad lies in the fact that it has emerged as a stable organisation of floating population of students. Perhaps no social organisation has its members changing so quickly and regularly as the ABVP has.
• The thoughts and ideals of the ABVP on educational change can prove as valuable assets for any educational ministry or department. Be it the issue of terrorism in Kashmir or of infiltration of foreigners into Assam and border states, or the issue of reservation and Mandal recommendations or the gigantic task of integrating north-eastern citizens with those of the other parts of the country or the problem of unemployment and economic reconstruction of the country or the fight against social inequalities or the calamity of earthquake in Marathwada, the ABVP has never been found wanting both on the plains of thinking and action.
