The government of Bihar has decided to set up three separate universities to regulate the functioning and academic activities of the engineering, medical and sports disciplines.
This was one of the 21 policy-related issues discussed and approved by Prime Minister Nitish Kumar at Friday’s cabinet meeting.
In another important decision, the state government decided to reduce the powers of Block Development Officers (BDO) and District Development Commissioners (DDC). The powers of BDO and DDC have been distributed to senior officers of Panchayati Raj or officers of the rank of deputy secretary.
In addition, the state government has decided to release prisoners whose sentences are due to expire in the next four months after the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic.
