The Centre has sanctioned funds for establishment of Government polytechnics in 14 districts of the State.

Each of the institutes will receive a one time grant of Rs 12.30 crore from the Centre for infrastructure development while the State Government will take care of the recurring expenditure, including staff salary and administrative expenses.

The Government polytechnics will be located in districts having no such institutes. Orissa has 13 technical institutes including three women polytechnics offering diploma courses in various trades. However, these institutes are limited to only nine districts and most of them are located in coastal region.

The new polytechnics will be opened in seven Naxal-affected districts of Malkangiri, Nabarangpur, Gajapati, Sambalpur, Jajpur, Nayagarh and Deogarh. The other districts selected for the Centrally assisted technical institutes are Boudh, Nuapada, Kalahandi, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Puri and Sonepur.Sites for the proposed polytechnics have been selected in respective district headquarters. The Government will provide at least 10 acres of land for each of the polytechnics free of cost.

The new polytechnics will start functioning from the next academic session. The new institutes will use the facility of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) wherever available and subsequently shift to their own campus, Director of Technical Education and Training VVS Yadav told this paper.

Construction of administrative buildings and industrial training sheds of the new polytechnics will be done by Infrastructure Development Corporation of Orissa Limited, Orissa Small Industries Corporation and Public Works Department. The construction contract will be awarded next month, he said.

The Directorate of Technical Education and Training has reportedly submitted a proposal on the number of branches to be opened, intake capacity in each trade and the number of teaching and non-teaching staff to be recruited to the Government for approval.  Senior officers of the Industries Department recently discussed the issue with the Finance

Department as the Government will bear the expenditure towards staff salary.According to a conservative estimate, each polytechnic will have at least 50 staff. The Government will take a decision on recruitment of staff on permanent or contractual basis.

The Government had already submitted a proposal to the Centre for financial assistance for opening Government polytechnics in the remaining seven districts.
