Dec 10, 2014 17:41 IST

    On Tuesday Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha passed the Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2014 presented by HRD minister Smriti Irani.

    The new University will be called as Mahatma Gandhi Central University and will be located in Motihari in East Champaran.

    The bill also changed the name of the existing university to Central University of South Bihar University, as it is located in south of the river Ganga.
