Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki said the institution would work towards disseminating the message of Bhagavad Gita to the entire world and announced Rs 1 crore for it.
Khattar said the state government had decided to give six acres of land for the 'Gita Gyan Sansthanam', which was being established with the objective of gathering ideas and showing a new path to the people.
He announced Rs 1 crore from his discretionary fund for the institution, which would include a Gita research centre and a museum.
The institute, which is being constructed at a cost of Rs 100 crores and is likely to be completed within three years. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev also announced Rs 1 crore for the institution on behalf of Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust.
