Following is a report from

The Orissa government has urged the Centre to develop Digha-Talsari tourism circuit to attract more tourists to these locations. It is proposed to be developed in public-private-partnership (PPP) mode.

Since the state government has already identified 700 acres of land for the project, the state has urged the Union ministry of tourism to initiate measure for the development of this circuit.

It figured in the discussion of the chief minister Naveen Patnaik with the visiting Union minister of state for tourism, Sultan Ahmad in the state secretariat today.

Ahmad is reported to have agreed to provide Central support for the international convention centre being planned in Bhubaneswar.

“The chief minister has proposed the setting up an international convention centre to attract tourists to Orissa. We will consider the proposal”, Ahmad told the media after meeting Patnaik.

He said, the progress of the on-going projects along with the new projects to be taken up figured in the discussion with the chief minister. There is ample scope for the development of Budhist tourism in Orissa. However, there is lack of marketing initiative and publicity in this area.

On the extension of the ‘Maharaja Express Classical India’ train to Bhubaneswar, the minister said, the ministry would consider and hold discussion on it after the state government sends its proposal.

State tourism minister Debi Prasad Mishra said, the state government has sought the extension of Maharaja Express train to Bhubaneswar. Since the existing packaging of the train is for 12 days and 11 nights, it can come from Delhi via Bodhgaya-Kolkata to Bhubaneswar by extending the package to 12 days and 12 nights.

Similarly, the state government has sought the conversion of the status of Food Craft Institute at Bolangir into an Indian Institute of Health Management (IIHM). The state government would provide additional land for it. Besides, the government has also urged the Centre to set up a IIHM at Rourkela, Mishra added.

    In my view, IIHM should be established in TITLAGARH instead of bolangir. Because bolangir was already got a top management institute campus XIMB. And titilagarh does not have such kind of educational instituations.. Titlagarh need development in educations not in industrialiastions.. Titlagarh was much popular for high temperatures.., so its better to develop titilagrh under educations.
