Western India, as far as I know, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is the only institution which
confers such academic titles. In the South, there are more than one such institution,
Tirupathi being the most prominent. Some of the Universities also confer titles.

methods of research, which is being adopted by the Universities;
method now being followed by the Pathashalas.
It is the latter method which makes Sanskrit not a dead
classical language like Greek or Latin, but a living language spoken by thousands.
