In ancient days, Bihar was known as one of the prominent learning centres with universities such as Nalanda, Vikramshila etc. But with the change in time, the state lost its eminence not only in education but in other sectors as well due to many factors such as corruption and poor administrative management.
But, however, the state has yet again regained its lost glory with establishment of many nationally well-known institutes such as IIT, BIT, NIT, NIFT, NLU, AIIMS and Central University.
The state government as well as central government are taking a number of initiatives to improve the education sector in the state. Several scholarships are being launched by the government to make the education more accessible and affordable to the students.
