Mithapur Bus Stand area to become an educational hub, 3 universities to be established

The entire area of the ​​Patna Mithapur Bus Stand will become an educational hub. The preparations are almost at the end-stage. The Chief Secretary has directed the Patna District Magistrate to allot the identified plot at the earliest.

Three new universities are to be set up in the Mithapur educational hub area. The district administration has been given the responsibility to decide the alignment after deciding on whom how much land is to be allotted. Its preparation has already started. After the shifting of the bus stand, about 17 acres of land is available vacant in Mithapur. Many plots are divided into different groups. According to the group made by the government, all the three universities are to be built in plots A and B. In this, apart from Patliputra University, Bihar Medical Education and Bihar Technical Education University is to be established. On the other hand, common facilities for all the institutions will be provided in plot C. It has been proposed to build an outdoor stadium, indoor stadium, shopping complex, health center, fire station. The DPR is also being prepared.

For the all-round development of Plot D, the boundary wall of the Regional Center of IGNOU is proposed to be retracted by 9 meters so that the common green belt in the middle can be widened.

Plot D will be made completely into a Green Road. A committee has to be formed for this. The area between the Maulana Mazharul Haq Arabi Persian University campus and the road connecting the main gate to the Chandragupta Institute of Management is marked as E on the map. It is proposed as a green zone from the past, but after the completion of the proposed metro rail project, Area C will be included in the widening for traffic, so that good transport facility can be created in the institutions located in the area.
