India acquires BR Ambedkar's three-storey bungalow in London

London: After 8 months of uncertainty, India on Thursday finally managed to seal the deal to acquire the ownership of a three-storey bungalow here, where Dalit icon and architect of Indian Constitution Dr. B.R. Ambedkar lived as a student during 1920s, and will be converted into an international memorial.

Maharashtra’s Minister for social justice and special assistance Raj Kumar Badole yesterday exchanged contracts with regard to the 2,050 sq ft house at 10 King Henry’s Road, in northwest London, said Santosh Dass, president of the Federation of Ambedkarite and Buddhist Organisations U.K.

Earlier, Maharashtra government has announced its decision to acquire the property at Rs 31 crore where a blue plaque commemorates the fact that Ambedkar lived there in 1921-22 when he was studying at London School of Economics (LSE), though exact amount for the deal was not announced yet.

According to Dass, the house will be turned into an educational and cultural centre.

The six-bedroom house went up for sale through an estate agent last year.

Ambedkar, who died in 1956 aged 65 was posthumously conferred with the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award, in 1990.
