Lalit Narayan Mithila University

Eminent academicians like Dr. Amarnath Jha, Dr. R. C. Mazumdar, Dr. A. S. Altekar, Dr. Sunil Kumar Chatterjee also mooted the idea of a university along with the locals. The prayers were heard when the idea was finally tabled in on 27th January 1947 at a meeting of some of the leading citizens of Darbhanga and Laheriasarai. The Mithila University Committee was constituted with Dr. Amarnath Jha as the President, Pandit Girindra Mohan Mishra and Pandit Gangadhar Mishra, the Vice-Presidents, Pandit Harinath Mishra as the General Secretary, Kumar Kalyan Lal and Professor Quasim Hussain Secretaries, and Late Shri Padmana Prasad as the Treasurer including a few members such as Shri Jyoti Prasad Singh, the late Shri P. N. Mishra and Principal. A Committe was also formed by the Government consisting of Shri T. P. Singh, Secretary, Minister of Education and Social Welfare, Shri R. K. Chabra, Secretary U.G.C. and Shri N. D. J. Rao, Education Commissioner, Bihar. The UGC team visited the town for exploring the opportunities of establishing a modern university.
In its report, the committee said that it could consider the setting up a University in Darbhanga.
