About Maharashtra Gandhi Smarak Nidhi

As after the martyrdom of Rashtrapita Mahatma Gandhi, prominent Gandhian leaders and social activists decided to keep Gandhiji alive in the form of ideology for the generations to come. In 1949 a committee was constituted to create a national trust called ‘Gandhi Smarak Nidhi’. Great national leaders were included in it like Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Chakravarti Rajagopalachari, Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad and Shri Jagjivan Ram amongst many others. An appeal of these great leaders to people of India turns out in a huge collection of fund. The main purpose of the fund was to further the manifold constrictive activities, in which Gandhiji was interested, and to preserve and propagate his teachings. Work of Gandhi Smarak Nidhi started from various states of India.
