January 23, 1949, a conference was held at Jamnagar attended by Sardar and Shri Gadgil
with Jam Saheb, Uchhrangrai Dhebar, Chief Minister of Saurashtra, and Samaldas Gandhi,
Administrator of Junagadh.
The Trust, it was then
decided, was to consist of two representatives of donors, two eminent public men, two
representatives of the Government of India, and two representatives of the Government of

The Board of Trustees were to be assisted by an Advisory
Committee the composition of which was to be settled by the Government of India.
