    The rules state that in order to be eligible for the Maharishi Keertankar Shelar Mama Gold Medal, students should also know and follow Indian culture. They should have taken part in activities such as blood donation and environmental protection. They should have also taken part in sports at the national, international level and also should do yoga.

    There was a backlash on the social media after the rules were made public. "The medals are generally instituted from some donations received by donors. One of the donors have made some conditions and since the awards are sponsored, we follow their terms and conditions", Registrar of the University Arvind Shaligram said.
