In the outer lawns adjoining the Lok Sabha Marg stands the 3.66 metre high bronze statue of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, a great scholar, an eminent jurist, outstanding constitutional expert, brilliant parliamentarian and social reformer and revolutionary.  A man of vision, he was also a champion of human rights and an indomitable fighter for ensuring the dignity of man.  Affectionately called "Babasaheb", Dr. Ambedkar was an undisputed leader of the downtrodden sections of the society.  He was the President of the Scheduled Castes Federation for a long time.  During the period when he functioned as Labour Member in the Viceroy's Council, he ushered in several landmark legislations for labour welfare.  As the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of the Constituent Assembly, he played a stellar role in framing the Constitution of India.  He was also the Union Minister of Law from 1947 to 1951 in which capacity he sought to abolish social injustices and strived for the uplift of the underprivileged.

The statue, sculpted by B.V. Wagh, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan on 2 April 1967.

The statue was donated by the Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Memorial Committee.
