Gujarat is one of the most developed states with rich cultural and entrepreneur heritage. With its progressive out look and its social reformation it has provided leadership not to India but also to entire humanity. It is one of the first states to implement the new pattern of education and three languages formula. It has a well organised network of institutions and organizations including a large number of NGOs working in the field of education and development. These traditions inspired the establishment of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University (BAOU) in the State in the year 1994.
