Nalanda University finally takes shape

The countdown for the revival of the long awaited Nalanda University, once considered to be the most coveted university in the world is finally about to get over.

The Law Ministry vetted the Nalalanda University Bill, which is now expected to be tabled in the Parliament in this session.

With former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam as its honorary Visiting Rector, the university is expected to have seven schools and tie-ups with international varsities, while Dr. Gopa Sabharwal will be the inaugural Rector.

The university is likely to adopt the seal of the ancient Buddhist varsity as its emblem.
