Sports hostels in Orissa

The following is from http://orissagov.nic.in/sports&youthservices/dsys/hostels.htm.

The Sports Hostel Scheme was launched in our State in the year 1985 with the objective to enable the talented young Sports persons to undergo systematic coaching for a prolonged period. As per the scheme, the young talented boys and girls in the age group of 10-14 yrs. are selected from the grass-root level through a rigorous process of tests which include anthropometrics as well as series of battery of tests.  After determining their motor capabilities, they are finally selected on the basis of their performance in specific skill tests.  The Sports Hostel scheme has paid rich dividends as large number of Sports Hostel products have proved their worth in National and International tournaments. At present there are 14 Sports Hostels and 3 Centers of Excellence functioning in the State.

Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust will set up a medical college and super specialty hospital near Naraj

Following is an excerpt from a news report in Pioneer.

Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust will set up a medical college and super specialty hospital near Naraj. Earlier, it was announced to set up a private university at Naraj. It has also planned to set up health centre in all the districts of the State.

In this connection, Trust member Yezdi Batliwala called on Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday at the State Secretariat.

The State Government has allotted 185.97 acres of land for this purpose. The proposed university would have a core campus comprising academic and non-academic buildings to cater to the needs of 15,000 students, 1,500 faculty and matching number of non-teaching staff.

Basic science, humanities, engineering, medicine, pharmacy, business management, law, bio-science, art, culture and Vedic studies, Ayurveda, aviation and maritime training will be on course list. The campus will house a sports complex, recreational facilities, utility centres and meditation halls.

Vedanta University will work towards giving 25 percent seats to the students from Orissa who will be taken on merit basis: Anil Agarwal to IANS

Following is an excerpt from an IANS report in thaiindian.com. (Also reported in indiaprwire.com.)

The Anil Agarwal Foundation, promoted by Agarwal, is setting up a multi-disciplinary world-class Vedanta University near the Konark-Puri marine drive with an investment of Rs.150 billion ($3.75 billion) in phases.

Vedanta Alumina, part of the Vedanta Resources (Sterlite) Group, is building an alumina refinery with an investment of $800 million in the state’s Kalahandi region.

It is also building an aluminium smelter project costing Rs.70 billion in Jharsuguda district.

“Our refinery project in Lanjigarh is one of the best projects in the world. We hope bauxite will be available for it,” Agarwal said.

He was hopeful of getting raw material and adequate water for the Lanjigarh project. “There is enough water in the Hirakud reservoir for industries and we will not touch a drop of water meant for farmers,” he said.

Regarding rehabilitation of the affected people, he said: “We will follow R&R (resettlement and rehabilitation) policy of the Orissa government for all our projects.” He described Orissa’s R&R policy as the best in the country.

Speaking of the progress of Vedanta University, Agarwal said in the first phase, the foundation stone for a medical college and a 600-bed hospital will be laid soon in the university campus.

We will work towards giving 25 percent seats to the students from Orissa who will be taken on merit basis,” he remarked.

Following is an excerpt from a report in New Indian Express.

VEDANTA Resources,which has proposed a university at Puri, intends to establish a multi-disciplinary hospital of international standard in the first phase.

Work for the hospital will start during the first quarter of next year. The project is targeted to be complete by 2010.

"Health is a priority area so far as CSR is concerned," Chairman,Vedanta Resources Anil Agarwal said during a tete-e-tete with Editors of the newspapers here today.

Agarwal who met Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik earlier in the day reiterated his company’s demand for ensuring 150 million tonne of bauxite for its alumina plant at Lanjigarh. Seventy million tonne out of the total, Agarwal suggested, was to come from Niyamgiri area as assured at the time of MoU and the rest to be made available from Sasubahumali in Koraput.

The other contentious issue for Vedanta is water for its power and smelter plant at Jharsuguda. Given the agitation by farmers over use of water from Hirakud for industrial purpose, Agarwal suggested that his company is prepared to pump in Rs 30 crore as an interim measure to source water from downstream of the reservoir to avoid any conflict with farmer’s interests.

He informed that the smelter plant at Jharsuguda is all set for commercial production and would go in phases. In the first phase, the company will go for 0.5 million tonne of smelter.

Vedanta Resources has already signed 100 MoUs with different companies for ancilliarisation at Jharsguda.

Asked,why Puri was selected as the site for the university,Agarwal said, his consultants had suggested seven proposals in different states but he selected Puri for its water frontage.

Stating that the university project is estimated at Rs 15000 crore, he informed that the Anil Agarwal Foundation will fund Rs 5000 crore to begin with.

Earlier, talking to mediapersons Agarwal parried a question on AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi opposing bauxite mining lease to refinery project.

He also informed that 25 percent of the students for the university will be given preference from the State of Orissa.

Indian Institute of Public Health (IIPH) to come up in Bhubaneswar?

Following is from a news report in Pioneer.

A unit of the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) will be set up at Bhubaneswar. A decision to this effect was taken at a joint high-level meeting between the CM Naveen Patnaik and Chairman of the Foundation Srinath Reddy at the State Secretariat on Thursday. Government will provide all the basic infrastructures for institution.

PHFI aims to influence public health education, research, and policy. The goal is to establish at least five world-class Indian Institutes of Public Health. These Institutes will initially train 1,000-plus professionals a year, with the goal of producing as many as 10,000 graduates. The Association of Schools of Public Health of the U.S. will offer educational and technical assistance.

The Foundation will bolster existing schools of public health by creating a pool of permanent faculty and establishing an accreditation agency that will standardise public health education. India currently graduates some 375 students each year from its schools of public health and institutions-compared to the 10,000 needed annually.

With the setting up this unit, Orissa will become a leader in the entire eastern region.

From the above news item it is not clear what is meant by a unit of PHFI. Is it an IIPH or something else?

Update: Following is Samaja’s report on it.

Update: Following is Sambada’s report on it.

Mahanadi Coal Fields Limited agrees to set up a medical college in Talcher

Following is an excerpt from a news report in Pioneer.

Coming under a sustained pressure from the State Government, the Mahanadi Coalfield Ltd (MCL) has reportedly agreed to set up a Medical College at Talcher. A decision to this effect was taken at a high-level joint meeting between the Coal India Limited (CIL) Chairman Partha S Bhattacharjee and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at the State Secretariat on Thursday.

During the meeting, Patnaik placed a proposal before the Coal India Chairman to convert the existing 100 bedded hospital at Talcher to a 400-bedded hospital and to make it a full-fledged Medical College. Bhattacharjee promptly agreed to Patnaik’s proposal, sources said.

… Mahanadi Coalfields Limited CMD SR Upadhayay, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Bijay Kumar Patnaik and Secretary, Energy, Suresh Chandra Mohapatra were present at the meeting.

Earlier, in http://www.orissalinks.com/?p=168, we had argued that the govt. should indeed do this and wrote about how Bokaro Steel Plant has agreed to set up an engineering college and a medical college in Jharkhand and Central coal fields agreeing to set up an engineering college in Jharkhand.

The Orissa government should put similar pressure on NALCO, SAIL-RSP, CIL, NTPC, etc.

SK Birla group to establish a top-notch B-School in Kolkata

Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph on this.

Calcutta Business School, started by the MBV Society, is located on a 16-acre plot in Bishnupur, 7 km south of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM). It will be operational from July this year.

“We run schools and colleges but running a management school is going to be a different ball game. But we are sure we will do a good job,” said S.K. Birla, the chairman of the board of governors of the management school.

The B-school will have “state-of-the-art” infrastructure, including a “green building”, air conditioning and wireless Internet connectivity round the clock.

It will offer a two-year, fully residential, postgraduate diploma in management. The first batch will have 60 students. There are plans to increase student intake to 500 over the next five years.

Admission will be based on the Common Admission Test (CAT) and the General Management Aptitude Test (GMAT). The fee for the entire course will be Rs 7.5 lakh.

Ministry of Sc. & Technology (DST and DBT) Labs in India: None in the DST list are in Orissa

 

The following list is from http://dst.gov.in/autonomous/autonomous_index.htm. Orissa does not figure in that list. In 2005 Orissa was trying for one. See http://www.orissalinks.com/?p=948. But nothing seems to have happened since then. (Orissa does have the "Institute of Life Sciences" which is funded by the Department of Biotechnology, which is under the Ministry of Science of Technology.)

 

 

The Department of Biotechnology labs are listed in http://dbtindia.nic.in/institutions/instmain.html. They are:

  1. Centre For DNA Fingerprinting And Diagnostics (CDFD), Hyderabad (http://www.cdfd.org.in)

  2. Institute of Bioresources and Sustainable Development  (IBSD), Imphal, Manipur (http://www.ibsd-imphal.nic.in)
