A law graduate from the Punjab University, Mr. Sudarshan Agarwal served as a judicial officer for nearly 15 years before joining the Parliament Secretariat in 1971. He was Secretary General of Rajya Sabha from 1981 to 1993. Thereafter, he served as a member of the National Human Rights Commission and held the rank and status of a judge of the Supreme Court of India. In January 2003, he was appointed by President of India as Governor of the State of Uttarakhand and subsequently of the State of Sikkim. He held this high office for a term of five and a half years.
He is a social activist par excellence. He has been instrumental in setting up a world class Blood Bank in Delhi under the auspices of Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 3010. While serving as Governor in Uttarakhand, he encouraged the medical fraternity to set up a world class voluntary Blood Bank to provide safe blood to people in life threatening situations particularly in the hilly state experiencing a number of road accidents each year.
He also set up a Boarding School for bright girls from impoverished families of Uttarakhand which is free for these girls for their education, food, uniforms, toiletries, hostel stay and all other needs. The School is recognized by CBSE for Class V to XII.
Each year the management spends over Rs. 1.5 Core on the current number of 262 of girls with approximately Rs. 60,000/- on each girl. Several of Mr. Agarwal’s friends in India and abroad have supported this initiative.
