Madhavrao Jivajirao Scindia 10.3.2005
Madhavrao Jivajirao Scindia (10 March 1945 – 30 September 2001) was an Indian politician from the Maratha clan, and minister from the Congress Party. Earlier, in 1961, he had become the titular Maharaja of Gwalior being a descendant of the Scindia dynasty of the Marathas. However, in the 26th amendment to the Constitution of India promulgated in 1971, the Government of India abolished all official symbols of princely India, including titles, privileges, and remuneration (privy purses).
Madhavrao Scindia was killed in a plane crash on the outskirts of Mainpuri district of Uttar Pradesh on 30 September 2001.
