Administered Society" in the state and bestowed upon it a cash
award of Rs. 1 Lakh. In its citation, the State Government formally

of education and cultural advancement.
The Ministry of Communication
has been requested to commemorate the Centenary celebration by brining
out a postage stamp carrying the picture of Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh.
As is obvious, the task we have taken in hand is stupendous, and
we can never hope to execute it successfully without the active
support and whole-hearted cooperation of all the educational institutions,
co-operative bodies, local self-govt. employees of various schools
and colleges, and all such persons who hold Bhausaheb in reverence.
We request all of you to come out with donations to help us in this
