IIT Patna: A Journey Began
The Indian Institute of technology Patna (commonly known as IITP) is an autonomous institute for education and research in the field of science and technology. As the name suggests, the institute is located at Patna, in the state of Bihar. The institute is one among the eight new IITs established in the year of 2008. IIT Patna had been established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act which was passed in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha in 2011 and 2012 respectively. It has been recognized as an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India.
Initially, there was a tug-of-wire between Jharkhand and Bihar as none of the state had any IIT and both the states wanted to host it. Bihar government won the game and IIT was established in Patna, Bihar. Initially the IIT Patna had started functioning from a temporary campus located at Patliputra colony. Till date, the IITP is situated on transit campus. The proposed site of IIT Patna is Bihta, 35 kilometer away from Patna.
