The Tripura government has agreed to establish a Buddhist university at Manu Bankul in Sabroom, officials said on Saturday. The state government has delivered a letter of intent to the Bahujana Hitaya Education Trust for the establishment of the university, they said. Students from 31 countries will have the chance to study as well as research Buddhist literature, culture and tradition at the offered university.

In addition, there is also a plan to establish medical, technical and general colleges on campus, they added. “The state government has already delivered the letter of intent for the establishment of the Buddhist university in the Manu Bankul subdivision of Sabroom in the South Tripura district,” said higher education director Nripendra Chandra Sharma.

Now, the organization will have to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) as soon as possible to build the necessary infrastructure at the proposed site, he said. The government will present a bill to the assembly for the establishment of the university once the necessary facilities are built, he said. Sabroom MP Sankar Roy said 25 acres of land had been given to the Buddhist organization to set up the university. “If everything falls in the right place, the cornerstone for the project will be laid within a month or two,” he said.

At present, Tripura has three varieties – Tripura University, which is a central university, state-run MBB University, and private ICFAI University.
