Following report is from The Pioneer:

The Lanjigarh block in Kalahandi district, which has been neglected in almost all aspects of development till now, is soon going to have its first science college. In a move aimed at fulfilling the long cherished goal of the residents of the block and its adjoining areas of Ambadola, Muniguda and Biswanathpur Vedanta Aluminum Limited (VAL) has partnered with the DAV College Trust and Management society to start a Science College here, which will begin its operation from the 2011-12 academic year.

The college will start with undergraduate courses in physics, chemistry, mathematics, zoology, botany and environment science. It will be funded by the Lanjigarh Project Area Development Foundation (LPADF) — the special purpose vehicle formed for as per the advice of the Supreme Court.

Notably, there is no such college within the radius of 50 km of Lanjigarh and the students from the poorer sections here had to discontinue their studies after Class XII.

VAL COO and LPADF Director Mukesh Kumar pointed out that the college would be of great help to the students of the area who drop out of the education system due to lack of facilities for higher studies. The quality of education in the college will be ensured by the DAV College Trust and Management Society, which will manage the college.

Noteworthy, the society is a premier education society in the country, which has already set up more than hundred such colleges across India and is currently running a school, which is considered the most modern school in the entire district.
