Maharashtra government acquires Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s London House
Maharashtra government has bought the house in London where social reformer and architect of the Indian Constitution Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar had stayed in the 1920s.
State government has acquired this house in 3.1 million pound deal owing to its cultural and national importance and pride of millions of people of India.
The property is three-storey house located on 10, King Henry Road, NW3 of London. B R Ambedkar had stayed in this house during his days as a student at the London School of Economics in 1920-21.
State government now will convert this property into a international memorial-cum-museum and will be open to public.
Earlier in January 2015, state government had issued a Letter of Intent (LoI) to buy Dr B. R. Ambedkar’s London house to the Indian High Commission in UK.
