The inauguration ceremony, scheduled for June 19, will be attended by several dignitaries including Governor Rajendra Arlekar and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. The Prime Minister is expected to spend about an hour and a half at the ceremony, where he will address the audience.

The idea to revive Nalanda University gained international endorsement at the East Asia Summit, reflecting its historical significance as a center of learning until the 13th century. Former President APJ Abdul Kalam had previously advocated for its revival, underscoring its importance in India’s cultural heritage.
