University of Allahabad

The University of Allahabad, informally known also as Allahabad University (Hindi: à¤à¤²à¤¾à¤¹à¤¾à¤¬à¤¾à¤¦ विशà¥à¤µà¤µà¤¿à¤¦à¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤²à¤¯) is a public central university located in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is one of the oldest universities established in the Indian subcontinent which primarily uses English as it medium of instruction. Its origins lie in the Muir Central College, named after Lt. Governor of North-Western Provinces, Sir William Muir in 1876, who suggested the idea of a Central University at Allahabad, which later evolved to the present university.[1][2] At one point it was called the "Oxford of the East",[3] and on 24 June 2005 its Central University status was restored through the 'University Allahabad Act, 2005', of the Parliament of India.[
