In August 2003, Mulayam Singh Yadav from the Samajwadi Party (SP) replaced Mayawati and became the Chief Secretary of Uttar Pradesh. A month later in October 2003 it was announced that the university became King George's Medical University (KGMU) as per the Uttar Pradesh Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University (Second Amendment) Act of 2003.
