Inaugurating the UGC sponsored “INFLIBNET: awareness workshop for colleges of Bihar”, jointly organised by the Department of Computer Science, Patna Women's College, in collaboration with A N College, the minister said, “We have already linked 1,000 schools through the Internet and going to connect more institutions, hospitals and offices.”

He added that e-governance is necessary for better development of a state. The government is also all set to implement the Centre's National Mission in education in ICT for connecting educational institutions through broadband. The event was the inauguration of INFLIBET, a major inter-university centre of UGC.

It will give access to 51 e-books and 2,100 journals and 48,196 e-resources for college books. Out of a total 249 colleges in Bihar, only two are registered with them. Their annual membership is just Rs 5,000 and anyone can get registered by filling the form online. Its main aim is to generate e-content resources and share and utilise it at the national level.
