Patna University - (Patna in Bihar)

The Patna University is the 7th oldest University of the Indian. The Patna University, the first university in Bihar, was established in 1917 during the British Raj. At that time, the jurisdiction of the university extended to Bihar, Orissa, and the Kingdom of Nepal. The university conducted examinations for educational institutions under its jurisdiction from school finals to the postgraduation levels. This continued almost for four decades, until the establishment of the Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, and the Utkal University, Bhubaneshwar. Vice Chancellor Sir Chandeshwar Prasad Narayan Singh's (Sir CPN Singh) (1945-49) contributed to develop a post-graduate course in the university, bringing teachers of eminence from all over India to man the newly opened departments.

The University also runs a Directorate of Distance Education (DDE) established in 1974. The main objective is to promote higher education among those who are employed or otherwise engaged and are in no position to attend regular classes. The University celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 1944 and its Golden Jublee (1967), in the year 1970 with the President of India Sri V. V. Giri as the Chief Guest.
