An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” – Ben Franklin

There are not many people who can claim to be a Doctor, Lawyer, MBA, Ph.D., Youngest MLA, Painter, Photographer and many more at the same time. The late Congress politician, Shrikant Jichkar was one of them.

His list of degrees is not only impressive and most probably unachievable by normal people like us, but also earned him a place in the Limca Book of Records for being the “most qualified Indian”.

  1. Medical Doctor (MBBS and MD)
  2. Law (LL.B.)
  3. Post-graduation in International Law (LL.M.)
  4. Masters in Business Administration (DBM and MBA)
  5. Journalism (B.Journ).
  6. M.A. (Public Administration
  7. M.A. (Sociology)
  8. M.A. (Economics)
  9. M.A. (Sanskrit)
  10. M.A. (History)
  11. M.A.(English Literature)
  12. M.A. (Philosophy)
  13. M.A. (Political Science)
  14. M.A. (Ancient Indian History,Culture and Archaeology)
  15. M.A (Psychology)
  16. D. Litt (Doctor of Literature) in Sanskrit – the highest of any degree in a University
  17. IPS (Indian Police Service) examination in 1978
  18. IAS (Indian Administrative Services) examination in 1980
Most of his degrees were with First Merit and he also obtained many Gold Medals for his degrees.

He was also elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly (1982–85) and Maharashtra Legislative Council (1986–92) and became the youngest MLA in the country at just 25.


After he wrote and got into the IPS in 1978, he resigned to write the IAS in 1980 and contested the general elections in Maharashtra in the same year.

Between 1973 – 1990, Jichkar sat for 42 University examinations that fell simultaneously every summer and winter and earned over 20 post-graduate degrees.


He eventually became a very powerful minister and held 14 portfolios at one time.

With such a vast a passion towards learning, it came as no surprise that Jichkar had one of the biggest personal libraries in all India with over 52,000 books.


He also became a member of Rajya Sabha from the year 1992-98.
Unfortunately, he was killed in a road accident in 2004, when his Mitsubishi Lancer rammed into an oncoming bus on NH6, 40 km off Nagpur.
He was just 51 when he died, but he left behind a legacy of knowledge and learning, something that no politically connected person in India has done so far.
