IIM Sambalpur to run from Jyoti Vihar, Burla

Following is a report from the TNIE:

SAMBALPUR: The temporary campus of Indian Institute of Management, Sambalpur (IIM-S) will be shifted to Sambalpur University after September this year. At present, the premier institution is being run from a private institution, Silicon Institute of Technology (SIT), at Sason here.Informing this, Director of IIM-S Mahadeo Jaiswal said the institute will run from the Sambalpur University till permanent campus of IIM-S at Basantpur here gets ready. The permanent campus is likely to be ready within next three years while the work on the boundary wall has already started.

Jaiswal said they will soon sign an MoU with the Sambalpur University in this regard. The State Government has already allotted some buildings on university campus to run the IIM-S.
The Director said an elite B-school runs for 24 hours but they face problems in taking class during evening hours as the SIT is located in an isolated place. The faculty members of IIM-S could take classes in evening hours after shifting of the temporary campus to Sambalpur University. Moreover, permanent faculty members are being recruited.

The B-school requires modern class rooms for the students. However, IIM-S cannot upgrade the class rooms on temporary campus as the Government does not allow upgrading infrastructure in a private building. However, they can upgrade class rooms at the university, Jaiswal said.

Vice-Chancellor of Sambalpur University CR Tripathy said the draft copy of the MoU has already been sent to the Central Government for approval. Apart from providing building to run the IIM-S, hostel facility will be provided to the students, he added.

The University has already set up an action plan to promote research activities. Gangadhar Meher University (GMU), located in this Sambalpur, Odisha, has set up a special cell to promote research activities. “Earlier, the institution was a college and not much research work was undertaken. However, it has been upgraded to a university and the focus is on research. Hence, to promote and support research work, a Research Promotion Cell (RPC) has been formed,” said Member Secretary of the RPC, U C Pati.

An action plan has already been prepared by the newly formed RPC to promote research activities, he said.Established in 1944, the Gangadhar Meher College was upgraded to a university in May, 2015. The institution, which has 5300 students, offers undergraduate, postgraduate, M Phil and pre-doctoral courses besides self-financing and vocational courses.

The students of the university will benefit immensely with increasing research activities, Pati said. Apart from this, our institution will also participate in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) of the Union Human Resource Development (MHRD) ministry this year. The research activities will help the institution get a good ranking in the NIRF, added Pati.

Dr. Lalit Kumar Meher appointed first dean of Balangir Medical College

Following is a report from OTV:

GovtBalangir

Bolangir: After a wait of 18 years, the dream of the people of Bolangir to  have a medical college in the district will soon become a reality. The project, proposed after formation of the Western Odisha Development Council (WODC), is all set to see the light of day with the college building nearing completion.

Besides, the state government has also appointed new Dean and Superintendent for the medical college.

Dean Lalit Kumar Meher along with a four-member team recently inspected the college infrastructure and facilities available.However, since construction of its independent hospital building has not started yet, the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) would be used as the hospital for the medical college.

Meher said, “This is a government medical college. So the government has to do everything. Apart from appointing doctors for the institution, the college requires all possible help from all the departments. Everybody has to be involved including the paramedical staff as well as nurses.”

We hope the Medical Council of India (MCI) grants permission to start admissions next year, said Meher.

“The Odisha government should by far start the admission process in 2018. The Dean and four other officials including Superintendent have already been recruited. Other faculty members would also be recruited in the next phase,” said Local MLA and Opposition leader Narsingha Mishra

What happened to the proposed Balangir University?

In 2016, the Odisha government had proposed to establish a public university at Balangir town. What happened to that proposal? People of Athmallik, Boudh, Sonepur, Balangir, Nuapada and Kalahandi districts are still dependent on Sambalpur University. A public university at Balangir will catalyze the growth of higher education in various districts of western Odisha. Why the Odisha govt. is silent on the proposed Balangir University issue.
