List of Universities in Orissa

May 31st, 2007

Following is a list of existing and proposed universities in Orissa which I earlier compiled in

Proposed Universties (new designations or to be made from scratch)

Editor’s comment:

  • July 1 05: Government of Orissa should immediately establish 1-2 comprehensive KBK University with several branch campuses among the locations of Koraput, Raygada, Bhawanipatna, and Balangir. It should then push for central university status for this university. This university should be named after the first widely publicized person who died of hunger in KBK as a reminder for governments (both central and state) not to ever forget about this area.
  • May 2006: The renewal of RLTAP should include a proposal for 1-2 central universities in KBK.
  • June 17 2006: Rayagada is a prime location for a new university in western Orissa. It is well connected and several private engineering colleges, MCA colleges and MBA colleges have come up here. It is a well-connected gateway to KBK, so the government could start here with a comprehensive university.

He stated the institute had all the basic infrastructure and financial strength, expect few as per the norms, to get the deemed status. He said complying to norms, currently the institute was paying AICTE approved salary to the teaching staff and State Government salary to the non-teaching staff.

    The institute has achieved 100 placements in the recent year in courses like MBA and other diploma courses. Depositing lakhs as taxes including income, sale and VATs display the institute’s strong financial position.
