Late Sri Karan Narendra donated 2100 acres of land for establishment of the Agriculture College, Jobner on 7th July, 1947 which was named after him.

The Agriculture University, Jobner Bill, 2013 was passed by the Legislative Assembly after lot of discussions. During the discussions in the Legislative Assembly during the passing of the Bill, several Hon'ble Members of the Legislative Assembly had demanded that Agriculture University, Jobner may be renamed as Sri Karan Narendra Agriculture University, Jobner. The State Government had assured the House during the discussion to reconsider this demand. To meet the demand of the Hon'ble Legislative Assembly Members, citizens of Jobner, educationists and social organizations for changing the name of the Agriculture University, Jobner and to keep the memory of Late Sri Karan Narendra alive, it is proposed to change the name of the Agriculture University, Jobner as the Sri Karan Narendra Agriculture University, Jobner, In order to keep parity with the other Universities the State Government had decided to amend section 53 of the Agriculture University, Jobner Act, 2013 so as to keep the tenure of the first Vice-Chancellor as three years in place of one year. Since the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly was not in session and circumstances existed which rendered it necessary for the Governor of Rajasthan to take immediate action, she, therefore, promulgated the Agriculture University, Jobner (Change of Name and Amendment) Ordinance, 2013 (Ordinance No. 23 of 2013) on 21st September, 2013, which was published in Rajasthan Gazette, Part IV(B), Extraordinary, dated 21st September, 2013. Now the Government has reconsidered the issue of extending the term of office of the first Vice-Chancellor of the University and has decided not to extended the period. Hence, the amendment proposed in section 53 has been dropped. The Bill seeks to replace the aforesaid Ordinance with the modification as aforesaid. Hence the Bill.|
