The Ananda Social and Educational Trust was set up as the outcome of a dream of committed Scheduled Caste intellectuals and philanthropists to make a positive contribution for the betterment of SC and ST and underprivileged people
by opening up new avenues for them to find better slots in the social hierarchy by providing quality education. To this end a Medical college named after Bharatha Rathna Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was established by the Trust in July 1981
The odds the visionary team had to contend with were many, but the co-operation and encouragement received from several quarters made the dream project a reality.
The Government of Karnataka under the stewardship of Sri.R.Gundu Rao accorded sanction to the Ananda Trust to start a medical college on 6th July 1981 at Cooke Town. Subsequently, the Karnataka Government and Late Sri.B.Basavalingappa, The Then minister,extended generous help with the allotment of 25 acres of land at Kadugondanahalli, Bangalore , at virtually no cost, to build its own campus.
