Opening of Central University in Bihar

New Delhi:(Page3 News Network)-Under the Central Universities Act, 2009, one Central University by the name of Central University of Bihar was established in Bihar in 2009. The Cabinet has approved a proposal to rename the existing Central University of Bihar as the Central University of South Bihar to be located at Gaya and to establish a new Central University at Motihari by the name of Central University of North Bihar. The Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2012 to amend the Central Universities Act, 2009 to facilitate the above is proposed to be introduced in the Parliament during the current session.
