Jiwaji Rao Scindia and college building was inaugurated by Deputy Prime Minister of India Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on 5th Dec 1948.In 1942-Dr Bhagwat Sahai, who was known as the best and most popular physician in Gwalior, was the Medical Suprintendent of the JA Hospital. He was also personal physician of Rajmata Smt. Gajra Raja Scindhia. After the death of Rajmata Gajra Raja Scindhia (Jan 12, 1943) his son Late Maharaja Jiwaji Rao Scindhia who inherited large sum of money created a trust called "Gajra raja Memorial Trust" with Sardar Phalke, DK Jhadav and Dr. B. Sahai as its members. Dr. B. Sahai who once dreamt of establishing a teaching center in Gwalior saw the possibility of his dream being fulfilled and proposed a medical institute. Especially at the time and cost of sponsoring candidates (11 in number) were quite high. Also the neighboring areas were also pressing a demand for medical education center. A proposal for the same was made and approved after lot of difficulties and financial sanction was given in the budget for 1945-46. A total sum of Rs. 20 Lacs was sanctioned on the occasion of the birth of Madhav Rao Scindhia in 1945.
On Nov21, 1945, Lord Wavell, The then Viceroy of India on his visit to Gwalior laid the Foundation stone of the college as 17th Medical college of India. It was a difficult task for the Dr.B.Shahai to complete the work in a short period so as to start the first class in August 1946. Thus it was even planned to rent out a building at Badas at the monthly rent of Rs. 500.00. However this was not fulfilled. However, considering the fact, a spacious building of Gwalior Medical Association, near JA Hospital was used as lecture hall and accommodation was built on either side of it for Anatomy and physiology Departments. A space for 35 students for dissection hall and physiology laboratory was planned as a temporary measure. The time bound challenging construction was carried out by Mr. Munnalal Misra, a contractor who working day and night finished the work by August 1946. A swimming pool form a previously existing Dhobhi Ghat (Washerman Place) was also built from the fund, which was spared, and a sports ground from the marshy land of river drain was prepared. For the students. About 350 snakes were killed during the preparation of the ground.
