Patna, Jun 19 (UNI) Reiterating the commitment of NDA government to transform Bihar into a ''knowledge hub'', Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said the state government would open an India Institute of Information Technology(IIIT) centre in the state capital.
Speaking at a function, organised to mark 121st birth anniversary of Late Anugrah Narayan Singh here last night, the Chief Minister said '' We are making every bit of effort to convert Bihar into a knowledge hub. Students from Bihar travel across the country and work hard to get admission into the prestigious institutions. Now onwards they would be relaxed as a number of prestigious institutions are venturing in the city.'' He said Aryabhatt Professional University, incorporating latest disciplines of technical and higher education, would also be functional soon from the educational hub in Mithapur here.
Referring to the ongoing efforts on new educational institutions, Mr Kumar said the K P Jaiswal Institute had identified about 40 villages near the Nalanda University for its revival as Nalanda International University.
