Maharaja Bir Bikram College will have the state university

If we go by the sources, soon Maharaja Bir Bikram College (MBB) at Agartla will have a state university. This step has been taken in order to promote and broaden the scope of high and quality education.

Bhanu Lal, state higher education minister, says "academic session of the university would start from 2015 and state's oldest college, the MBB College, was chosen for the site of the university due to its sprawling."

He added further "a committee headed by the education secretary is looking after the aspects of the setting up of the university. The government would introduce a Bill in the Assembly on the move."

Stating further, Lal explained "the state will put forward a proposal to the University Grants Commission (UGC) for obtaining permission for the university."

On the other hand, the state government is all geared up to prepare a DPR (Detail Project Report), and will send the report to the Centre, so that they could sanction funds for the project. According to the sources, an estimated fund of Rs 15 carore will be needed annually for the university.

Though the state already has a central university called Tripura Central University, but the state government has decided to rope in the state university as well, to broaden the scope of higher education and to control the university.

Apart from this project, there is another project in the pipeline of the state government. The government has made up its mind to open English Medium Science College in the premises of the old central jail at Bishalgarh.
