Profile of Lalit Narayan Mithila University

The Temple of Learning Lalit Narayan Mithila Vishvidyalaya, Darbhanga is an outcome of the cherished desire of the people of this region. Eminent academicians like Dr. Amarnatha Jha, Dr. R.C. Mazumdar, Dr. A. S. Altekar, Dr. Sunit Kumar Chaterjee and many others had expressed their view in favour of the establishment of modern University at Darbhanga. The demand was voiced time and again on the floors of the state legislatures and in the Parliament. On the 27th January, 1947 (Vasantpanchami Day) at a meeting of some of the leading citizens of Darbhanga and Laheriasarai, the Mithila University committee was constituted with Dr. Amarnatha Jha as the President and Pandit Harinath Mishra as the General Secretary. The year � 1968 may be regarded as a landmark year in the history of the University when a UGC team visited Darbhanga in order to explore the possibility of establishing a multi faculty University here. Subsequently State Government set up a committee to examine the administrative and academic structure of a modern University at Darbhanga, following the recommendations made by the visiting team of the U.G.C. The Government of India constituted another committee consisting of Sri T. P. Singh, Secretary Ministry of Education and Social Welfare, Sri. R. K. Chhabra, secretary, U.G.C. and Sri N. D. J. Rao, Education Commissioner, Bihar, to look into the matter of establishing a University at Darbhanga. They reported that the establishment of a separate and independent University at Darbhanga could be considered on merit. Consequent upon the report of the above mentioned committee and considering the socio-economic background of the region, the Mithila University with headquarters at Darbhanga was established by an ordinance, in 1972 carving out colleges at Darbhanga division and Kosi division from the then two Universities � Bihar University, Muzaffarpur and Bhagalpur University, Bhagalpur respectively.
After the sad demise of Pt. Lalit Narayan Mishra in January, 1975, the name of Mithila University was amended as Lalit Narayan Mithila University. But it was soon reversed to the original name through an ordinance. However in 1980, the name Lalit Narayan Mithila University was restored through an ordinance. The colleges of Kosi Division which were initially attached to this University in 1972 were transferred to newly established B. N. Mandal University, Laloonagar, Madhepura, with vertical separation of the assets and liabilities with effect from 10.01.1992.

UGC Recognition
1986 should go down as another important year in the history of L. N. Mithila University, when the University got much needed recognition of the University Grants Commission (UGC) under section 12 (A) of the UGC Act paving way for the receipt of the various types of financial assistance from the UGC. The UGC started providing institutional development grants under section 12(B) of the UGC Act since February 1989. This notable achievement of the University accelerated pace of campus development. The developmental activities within the University campus began to stride with the investment of grants received from the U.G.C. and the State Government. Botany, Physics, Chemistry and Zoology Science Blocks, Central Library Building, Social Sciences Block, University, University Health Centre, University Health Centre, Kosi, Baghmati, and Gandak P.G. Hostels for boys and Archana (Kamala) Hostel for girl students are new additions to the structural built of the University campus. The last phase of the ninth five years plan has set the tempo of construction activities, as a result of which eight U.G.C. quarters for lecturers, canteen, an ambitious Silver Jubilee Hall are nearing completion. Besides, the projects of construction of large stadium, magnificent auditorium, quarters for Pro-Vice-Chancellor and registrar etc. are on the anvil.

DARBHANGA: The academic council (AC) of Lalit Narayan Mithila University (LNMU), at its meeting held on Sunday under the chairmanship of its vice-chancellor (VC) Samrendra Pratap Singh, approved the new regulation for Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Literature (D.Lit) and Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) courses as well as introduction of semester system in the postgraduate (PG) courses from the next academic session (2012-13).

The approval followed intense deliberation at the meeting by the members, including principals of some constituent colleges, heads of postgraduate departments and the deans of faculties of sciences, commerce and humanities. In a major decision, the AC decided to hold entrance test for admission to the PG courses from the next academic session. Earlier, students were admitted on the basis of marks obtained at the three-year degree exams. According to the registrar of LNMU, Vijay Prasad Singh, before holding the Pre- PhD registration test, number of seats for PhD in each subject would be announced. On that basis, the number of students would be selected for each subject.

Earlier, large number of students used to pass registration test and become eligible for PhD. Before registration for PhD, students will have to undertake a course of research methodology for six months.

Synopsis for PhD, submitted by the students and approved by the supervisor, would be discussed at the department research council and the deliberation would be videographed. The open viva-voce exam after submission of thesis for PhD would also be videographed. It would done to prevent repetition of research work. A supervisor shall not have at any given point of time more than eight PhD scholars under him.

Jaykar Jha, dean of faculty of science-cum-member of the AC, said that for enrolment in D.Lit and D.Sc courses, the proposed research work would be sent to three nationally known experts of the subject and after receiving their recommendation, the candidate would be required to publish 10 research articles in the referred journals and then only enrolment for D.Lit and D.Sc courses would be done. Dean of Students Welfare (DSW) Prabhu Narayan Jha said the AC also approved the new syllabi of different subjects of PG courses for the semester system to be introduced from the next session. Heads of the PG departments have prepared these syllabi. S M Jha, dean of the faculty of commerce, said all the decisions had been taken for qualitative improvement in higher education.
