The University of Rajasthan is the oldest institution of higher learning in Rajasthan. It was established on 8 January 1947, as the University of Rajputana with the main objective of disseminating knowledge and catering to the needs of the students of Rajasthan. It had jurisdiction over the entire state. In the year 1956, the Rajputana University was renamed as the University of Rajasthan, keeping intact its enveloping jurisdiction. With the successive creation of other universities, its affiliating jurisdiction has come down to only seven districts of Rajasthan, but it is still the hub of higher education in Rajasthan paving the way for the other universities.
