Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar - 125th Birth Anniversary

Today on 14 April 2016 we are celebrating the 125th birth anniversary of Dr. Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, the father and architect of the Indian Constitution.

To mark the anniversary, the Union Government has been organizing many events so as to raise even greater global awareness about Ambedkar and his great contributions for the welfare of society and humanity.

To this end a Committee was also formed in May 2015 to chart out how the principles and contributions of Ambedkar on his birth anniversary can be popularized.

Also, two commemorative coins of “ten rupee” and one hundred and twenty-five rupee” denominations were released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as part of it on 6 December 2015.
Even United Nations will also be organizing an event for the first time to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar to focus on combating inequalities to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
