The Vidyapeeth was awarded the status of 'Deemed to be University' by Govt. of India in 1987 in recognition of its contribution in the field of education, which accorded the Vidyapeeth recognition at the national level. During the last 32 years, the Vidyapeeth has developed significantly. Today, The Vidyapeeth offers various courses through 12 Boards of Studies. At the time of award of status of "Deemed to be University" the Vidyapeeth had only three faculties, namely those of Ayurveda, Sanskrit, and Social Science. Subsequently, new faculties were formed in the fields of Modern Sciences, Management, Health Science and Law. This addition of courses in new disciplines has been possible under the able guidance of Dr. Deepak Tilak, the Vice - Chancellor of the Vidyapeeth.
