Following report is from The Pioneer:

Sambalpur MP Amarnath Pradhan has demanded the setting up of an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Sambalpur.

He said that Sambalpur is the nerve centre of western Odisha and it has the entire infrastructure to facilitate an IIM. Pradhan said that the Union Government should create more opportunities for students in the State by opening at least one IIM in Odisha.

Recently, the standing committee on HRD in its report had asked the Centre to increase the number of seats in the existing IIMs. Pradhan said that as the State is witnessing rapid industrialisation, the necessity for setting up an IIM is increasingly felt. He said majority of the mega projects are coming up in western Odisha and to meet the requirements of these industries, an IIM is very much needed, said the MP.

It may be pointed out that Odisha has all along demanded an IIM and the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) has never been kind to the State since the days of Arjun Singh. Though Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal is not having such negative feeling, he has not been generous to the State, said a senior official.
