Admission to Balangir Medical College will start from Sept 2018

Following is a report from the Telegraph:

Balangir: The state government has announced that admission to Balangir medical college would begin from the coming academic session.

The health and family welfare department’s commissioner-cum-secretary Pramod Meherda announced this on Thursday evening. Meherda, who is the nodal officer for Balangir, is on a tour of the district.

Earlier, delegates of various organisations of Balangir such as the Balangir Citizen Committee, Bhumika, Being Human and the Balangir Merchants’ Association met Meherda and raised the issue of the proposed college.

After a meeting with district collector N. Turumala Nayak, project director of the Balangir district rural development agency Maheswar Mallik and chief district medical officer Sugyanendra Mishra, Meherda told reporters that admission of the first batch of MBBS in Balangir medical college would commence from the coming session.

He said all preparations were going on to ensure that the college became functional from September. “Things are going pretty well, and we have enough time to complete the requisite works before the medical college becomes functional in September,” he said.

Meherda further said a Medical Council of India team had visited to take stock of the college infrastructure last year and would pay a visit again in April. “Last year, the council had visited the proposed college site to study its infrastructure. They would visit again in April,” Meherda said.Meherda also paid a visit to the 100-student strength medical college building and other infrastructures on the campus at Gandhrel, the site of the proposed college. He also visited the 300-bed hospital.The news has brought cheer among the aspirants, who are going to appear for the NEET, the national-level entrance test for admission into various medical colleges in the country.

Harish Rout, who would take the exam in May, said he was elated to hear that there would be admission in Balangir medical college in the coming session. “At last, the dream of the people of Balangir is going to be fulfilled,” he said. The UPA government at the Centre had in 2014 planned government medical colleges in four places in the state – Koraput, Balangir, Baripada and Balasore. Student admissions to the colleges in Koraput and Baripada had begun in the last academic session in 2017.

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.
