Central University of Bihar will set up its campus at Gaya

Central University of Bihar which has been a matter of dispute between Central and State Government has finally chosen a plot of land for its campus at Gaya as reported in some online news portals.

It is currently running with a temporary campus at BIT Patna. Recently it encountered conflicts with BIT Patna when the latter sent an eviction notice to Central University of Bihar.

The state government has been insisting that the University come up in Motihari, which did not fulfil the criteria laid down by the Ministry of Human Resources Development.

It was being said that BIT-Patna is being “pressurized” by Nitish Kumar-led State government to make it difficult for the University to continue. While Nitish Governemnt wanted the University to be setup at Motihari, the Central Government wanted it to be somewhere near the state Capital.
