Bihta: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said the proposed IIT-Patna campus will be ready by 2013.
"The proposed IIT-Patna campus, spread over a sprawling
500 acres land at Bihta, will be ready and functional in two
years` time," he said after Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal
laid the foundation stone of the institute.

The Chief Minister said the process of identifying land
for the IIT was been a difficult one as there is a shortage of
land in the state for non-agriculture purposes.
