ger: Need To Improve Ger In State, Says Minister | Patna News


Patna: State building construction minister Ashok Choudhary on Saturday stressed on the need of giving autonomy to colleges for their all-round development and improving further academic ambience on the college campuses. β€œThe need of the hour is to improve Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) in the state which is 14.5%.

He was speaking at a function organised to unveil the bust size statutes of former Patna mayor K N Sahay and former Rajya Sabha member Shankar Dayal Singh, on the B D College campus here on Saturday.

Former Rajya Sabha member Rabindra Kishore Sinha, who was the chief guest on the occasion, said the college should promote organic farming and set up labs for it on priority.
β€œAt a time when environment pollution is making life difficult to live, organic farming will give us relief to live a healthy life,” he said.
Patliputra University VC Prof R K Singh said the university must focus on research-oriented work in each college and sought help from the state government in getting possession of the land allotted to the university way back in 2019 at Mithapur.
