All the above, along with vetting of the design through a third party(s) and clearances from the SECI, MNRE, CERC, SBPDCL/DISCOM, & BERC. Further, comprehensive operation as well as maintenance of the entire installation for 5 years. 

The installation site is located along the Patna-Rajgir Highway and is well-connected with the city of Rajgir, Bihar. The total area of the site is approximately 455 acres (“Site”) out of which 20 acres area has been allotted and marked for the Ground Mounted Solar PV System and associated jobs.  

Nalanda University was established in November 2010. It came into being by an act (Nalanda University Act 2010) of the Indian Parliament.
