Initiatives and projects (many higher education related) during the 1961-1967 tenure of Biju Patnaik

Yesterday’s Dahritri has a column by senior columnist Barendra Kumar Dhal [1,2,3,4,5,6] where he lists the various initiatives and projects taken up during Biju Patnaik’s government of 1961-67. I am amazed by the list which includes many HRD institutions. Here are some of the highlights.

  • Paradeep Port
  • Daitari-Paradeep highway
  • Mig factory in Sunabeda
  • Rourkela Steel Plant
  • Regional Research Laboratory
  • Regional College of Education (Now called Regional Institute of Education)
  • Berhampur University
  • Sambalpur University
  • Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology
  • Sainik School
  • Baragarh Cement factory
  • Various factories of IDC
  • Orissa textile mills (OTM)
  • Kalinga Tubes
  • Kalinga Iron works
