In the year 2000, after Jharkhand separated from Bihar and got its independent existence, realization struck that schools which were established to provide a firm ground to meritorious students like the Indira Gandhi Residential School, Hazaribagh for girls and Biharís pride Netarhat School have both gone under Jharkhand. Since that time itself, an urgent need has been felt to establish schools which would eliminate the vacuum created by Netarhat and Indira Gandhi Awasiya Vidyalaya. The human resource development department started working in this direction henceforth.
On 12th August, 2009 some exuberant/enthusiastic alumni of Netarhat, on the initiative and invitation of Honorable Chief Minister of Bihar, Shri Nitish Kumar, came forward to help the state government by adopting roles suitable for them on the basis of their experience at Netarhat. Taking into consideration the need of the present circumstances it was accepted by general consensus that the medium of instruction would be English. On the suggestion of Shri Nitish Kumar, Hon Chief Minister of Bihar in the meeting of 29th of August, 2009 it was also decided that only one school would be opened that would be co-educational and would provide a common platform to both meritorious boys and girls to garner quality education under the guidance of qualified and experienced teachers chosen from all over the country.
Under the guidance of State Governmentís Human Resource Departmentís Principal Secretary Shri Anjani Kumar Singh, the officials of the department started work in this direction and set the wheels in motion in a record time of less than a year. The first batch of 120 students reached Simultala on 6/7th of August, 2010 and on 9th of August, 2010, the Chief Minister of Bihar, Shri Nitish Kumar officially inaugurated Simultala Awasiya Vidyalaya and gave an effective gift/a gift full of promises for the future of Bihar.
