The Bill of Rajendra Prasad Central Agricultural University, PUSA, Samastipur, Bihar for up-gradation from an Agricultural University to Central Agricultural University has been passed by the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha simultaneously on Wednesday, the 11th May, 2016 and even President His Excellency Pranab Mukherjee gave his accent on the same day, making it a rare case by the Indian Legislature.

A long standing demand of the people of Bihar has been fulfilled by the Central Government by making this “Rajendra Prasad Central Agricultural University, Samastipur” as a central university. There is one more central university at Motihari, Bihar in the name of Mahatma Gandhi Central University.

There might be one or two previous such examples on the record of Parliament’s proceedings, while passing a bill on one day to make it an Act with approval from the  President.
