Following is a report from

Decision making in Government of Orissa has taken a back seat.

So indecision over finalizing the private sponsor to set up Balangir Medical College has left the project in limbo.
Six private promoters have shown interest to set up the Medical project, but nobody in Government is ready to finalize partner.

People of Balangir are demanding a Medical College & Hospital for last 12 years and yet the Western Orissa Development Council (WODC) has failed to provide it.
Six years before in 2003, GSL Trust of Andhra Pradesh was roped in as a private promoter to set up Medical College here and MOU was signed for the purpose.

Later in 2004, MOU was cancelled as the promoter failed to commence work of the project. In 2005, Jassar Dental Medical Foundation of Uttar Pradesh was allowed to sign MOU and it was abrogated in 2006. In October, 2006, Sri Balaji Educational Charitable Public Trust (SBECPT) signed MOU for the project.

SBECPT and WODC was entangle in tussle over land and grant issue, resulting, the trust went to Orissa High Court. So fresh advertisement was issued in 2008 for private partner and accordingly 6 different parties have shown interest in setting up the project.

However, now no body is in a mood to finalize the promoter out of the 6 contenders.

They are Dr.D Meher Education & Health Trust, Balangir, Santhigiri Ashram, Kerala, Sahayata Trust, Hydrabad, supreme Task, New Delhi, Vigyan Bharati Charitable Trust , Bhubaneswar and RVS Educational Trust, Tamil Nadu.

Bone of contention is as the SBECPT has filed a writ petition in High Court, this has to be examined before finalizing the private promoter. So after so many years, people still waits for Medical College & Hospital here.


Entry filed under: Balangir Medical College (WODC), Health Care Facility.
