Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the new campus of Nalanda University in Bihar’s Rajgir. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), he expressed his happiness on the occasion, calling it a “very special day for our education sector.” He highlighted Nalanda’s “strong connection with our glorious past” and its role in catering to the educational needs of the youth.

PM Modi wrote, “It’s a very special day for our education sector. At around 10:30 AM today, the new campus of Nalanda University will be inaugurated at Rajgir. Nalanda has a strong connection with our glorious past. This university will surely go a long way in catering to the educational needs of the youth.”

The university is a collaboration between India and East Asia Summit (EAS) countries, with deep historical roots. The original Nalanda University, established around 1600 years ago, is considered one of the first residential universities in the world.

According to a PMO release, the Prime Minister will visit the Ruins of Nalanda at around 9:45 AM. The ruins were declared a UN Heritage Site in 2016. At around 10:30 AM, he will inaugurate the new campus and address the gathering on the occasion. The ceremony will be attended by several eminent people, including heads of missions from 17 countries.

The new campus features two academic blocks with 40 classrooms, accommodating around 1900 students. It has two auditoriums with a capacity of 300 seats each, a student hostel for around 550 students, and various other facilities, including an international centre, an amphitheatre for up to 2000 individuals, a faculty club, and a sports complex.

The campus is designed as a ‘Net Zero’ Green Campus, self-sustaining with solar plants, domestic and drinking water treatment plants, a water recycling plant, 100 acres of water bodies, and other environment-friendly facilities.
