Altekar, Dr. Sunil Kumar Chatterjee and many other had expressed their views in favour of the establishment of a modern University at Darbhanga. The demand for establishing University was voiced time and again on the floors of the state legislature and in the parliament. On the 27th January, 1947 (Vasant Panchami Day) at a meeting of some of the leading citizens of Darbhanga and Laheriasarai, after Darbhanga visit by Late Prof. Binodanand Jha, then the Health and L. S. G.

N. Mishra and Principal B. M. K. Sinha.

The year 1968 proved as a landmark year in the history of the University when a U.G.C. team visited Darbhanga in order to explore the possibility of establishing a multi-faculty University here. Subsequently the State Government set up a committee to examine the administrative and academic structure of the modern University at Darbhanga, following the recommendations made by the visiting team of the U.G.C.

The Government of India constituted another committee consisting of Shri T. P. Singh, Secretary, Minister of Education and Social Welfare, Shri R. K. Chabra, Secretary U.G.C. and Shri N. D. J. Rao, Education Commissioner, Bihar to look into the matters for establishing a University at Darbhanga. The committee submitted its report that the establishment of a separate and independent University at Darbhanga could be considered on merit basis.

Directorate of Distance Education

The Directorate of Distance Education in Lalit Narayan Mithila University was established in the year 1998 vide University letter no. P/D 54-139/98 dated 7/2/1998. Dr. Harendra Singh, then Controller of examinations, L.N.M.U Darbhanga was the first Director in-charge of the Directorate of Distance Education. The task assigned to him was to formulate and prepare the proposal for starting Distance Education from session 1998-99, in consultation with the Advisory Committee which was duly constituted by the University. However, the Directorate became functional and operative in 2005 with launching of B.Ed. Programme in collaboration with IGNOU when Professor A. N. Kargupta was Director. The Directorate is now offering 21 programmes/courses through the distance mode. Since inception, it has been taking various initiatives to spread among masses the mode and facilities of distance education so as to reach the unreached, unprivileged and the marginalized section of people in remote pockets of areas under the University jurisdiction. At present nearly 65000 students of higher education are enrolled in the ODL system of DDE. The flexibility in the system, no discrimination of caste, sex and age, supply of study materials at the door steps are the beauty of this mode of education.
