It accepted three proposals of Nawab Ali Chowdhury: (1) The All India Muslim League warmly welcomed the proposal to set up an educational and residential university in Dhaka in view of the relative backwardness of the people of East Bengal and Assam in higher education. Basically, the process of establishing Dhaka University started from this. Since the Government of India announced its commitment to establish Dhaka University on 31 January 1912, 23 March 1920, the day the Dhaka University Act No. 18 of 1920 was passed in the Central Legislative Assembly of India.
