New Delhi, January 30, 2024 —Today, the President of India nominated Shri Satnam Singh Sandhu to the Rajya Sabha.

Satnam Singh Sandhu, the son of a farmer, is an accomplished educationist in India. He faced difficulties in pursuing education himself, being from an agricultural background. Therefore, he made it his mission to establish a high-quality educational institution, starting with the Chandigarh Group of Colleges (CGC) at Landran in Mohali in 2001. He then went a step further and founded Chandigarh University in 2012. The university has been ranked in the QS World Rankings 2023 and is the top private university in Asia.

Chandigarh University Chancellor Sandhu is also a philanthropist who has financially assisted countless students to pursue quality education. He is actively involved in community efforts to improve health and wellness and promote communal harmony through his two NGOs, the Indian Minorities Foundation and the New India Development (NID) Foundation.

In addition to his work in India, he has made significant efforts for national integration and worked extensively with the diaspora abroad.
