Patna: Srimati Radhika Sinha Institute and Sachchidanand Sinha library, which is the state’s central library, is in poor shape due to the negligence by the education department. Radhika Sinha Institute was set up by late Sachidananad Sinha in the memory of his wife. He had gifted his bungalow to the state government for setting up the library which contains the copy of the Constitution with signatures of the members including late Sinha who chaired the drafting committee.
Due to shortage of staff and poor allocation of funds, books have also not been purchased for several years .  The institue was converted into Bihar Central Libray on April 1,1956.According to the agreement reached between the trust and the state government, grant to the library  every year will be calculated on the basis of the actual deficit in that budget with a ceiling of Rs 31,372 only every year.
According to a memorandum submitted by the employees of the library to the education minister “the grants being made available by the state government has always been inadequate for salary, proper upkeep and infrastructure building of the library, which has been requesting the state government every year for more grants.”
Dinesh Prasad Sinha, Madhav Prasad  and Mohan Ram, employees of the library said they were not given the benefits of 6th Pay Commission recommednations which were made available to the state govrment employees.
