The permanent campus is currently under construction near the village of Birhar about 35 kilometers from Ranchi. The initial land allocated was 214 acres, after which it was decided to take only 76 acres of land from the Birsa Agricultural University. To make up for the lost space, the Government of Jharkhand issued an additional 90 acres of land free of cost for the development of a fully fledged campus. The foundation stone for the campus was laid on 29th of July 2013,by the HRD minister Pallam Raju.
