New medical, engineering and MBA colleges planned in Bihar

The Bihar government emphasizing focus on education has decided to start 19 superspeciality medical colleges, 23 engineering colleges and a couple of management institutes in the next five years.

Dy. CM, Sushil Modi in an interview to Economic Times not only mentioned the above but also said that their focus would be to build the IT industry in Bihar (Patna) and make it an important IT destination after Bangalore. He has said that the government is finalizing the IT policy and is in talks with IT companies to setup offices in Bihar. With the finalized IT policy, incentives would be given to IT companies starting operations in Bihar.

I think both the above actions are good moves in the right direction as lesser people will now go to other states and invest in those states for higher education. At the same time after graduation, students will have more job opportunities to work in the hitech industry without leaving Bihar.

I hope whichever party comes to power in the forthcoming assembly elections follows through with the above plan.

The interview of Mr. Modi can be read in Economic Times at Bihar can be the next top IT location: Deputy CM Modi
