Staff crunch stares at Deogarh College

Following is a report from TNIE:

There have been many agitations over vacancies in the Deogarh College. Teachers, however, are yet to be posted  much to the disappointment of the students.

Last year on August 4, students locked the main gate of the Deogarh College demanding filling up of vacant teacher posts. On August 8, they called for a 12-hour Deogarh bandh which received widespread support.

Subsequently, they unlocked the main gate after the then Regional Director, Higher Education, Bijay Laxmi Mishra promised that teachers from neighbouring colleges would be deputed to the College till a permanent arrangement is made.

But with no development since then, students are threatening to hit the streets again. More than half of the sanctioned posts in the College are lying vacant since long.

Set up in 1963, Deogarh College – the oldest and the only college in the district offering science streams – has a sanctioned strength of 40 teachers. At present, there are only 18.

While two sanctioned teacher posts in Mathematics are lying vacant since March 2010, Chemistry, Zoology, History, Political Science and Logic departments have one teacher each. Similarly, departments of Physics, Botany, English, Economics and Education have two teachers each.

Only Odia department has three faculty members.

The College has about 800 students on rolls. Principal Chittaranjan Das said the authorities had been apprised of the situation.

NALCO to build medical college in Koraput

Following report is from TOI:

BHUBANESWAR: Public sector undertaking Nalco promised the state government on Thursday to open a 100-seat medical college and 300-bed hospital in tribal-dominated Koraput district. This raises the number of medical colleges in the pipeline in the state to 12, including three by PSUs.

“Responding to the government’s proposal, Nalco has come forward to establish a 100-seat medical college in Koraput as part of its corporate social responsibility. The company will submit its detailed proposal to the government within seven days,” health minister Prasanna Acharya said.

While National Thermal Power Corporation ( NTPC) is in the process of starting a medical college in Sundargarh, Mahandi Coalfields Limited is planning one in Talcher.

“Land identification and alienation for the MCL college will be done at the earliest,” the minister said after reviewing various proposals of establishing medical colleges in the state. To meet the shortage of laboratory technicians in hospitals, the government has also requested MCL to start a DMLT training centre.

New Delhi-based OSL Group’s Centre for Joint Disorders will established a 150-seat medical college, 750-bed super-speciality hospital, a dental college and a nursing college in Bhubaneswar. The group has promised to start work within two months, the minister said.

The upcoming Sardar Rajas medical college and hospital at Jaring in Kalahandi district, being established by Selvam Education and Charitable Trust of Tamil Nadu, will start admitting students from the next academic year, the minister said.

The sDFID of UK has been preparing a report to facilitate a medical college in Balangir. Similarly, land transfer work for the proposed medical college by Sahyog Foundation in Keonjhar will be fast-tracked, the minister said.

Acharya said the government would soon examine the proposals of Basantidevi Charitable Trust and Bidyabharti Charitable Trust as well to open a medical college in Rayagada. The government has also agreed in principle to a proposal from Shankar Netralaya of Chennai to start a 200-bed eye hospital in Berhampur. The government on Tuesday asked Bangalore-based Narayana Hrudayalaya, which has taken land from the state government to establish a super-speciality hospital in Bhubaneswar, or start work or return the land. The group assured to start work by September.
