Bhubaneswar:24/January/2009

Centre has approved to open 4 polytechnics in Malkangiri, Boudh, Gajapati and Samabalpur district

In order to lure the youth of the Maoist predominant areas for technical education the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has chalked out program to establish more diploma engineering institutions.

So Orissa being largely affected by Left Wing Extremism has been benefited handsomely.

Malkangiri, the worst affected by Maoist menace has been allotted a polytechnic.

Each polytechnic will cost Rs.12 crore and the MHRD has provided Rs.8 crore as the first instalment.

Vir Vikaram Yadav, Director Techinal Education, speaking to tathya.in said that the State Government is trying to cover all the districts with polytechnics.

While the State Government has 13, there are 7 private polytechnics imparting diploma in engineering.

With these 4 new institutions, many other districts are left.

Districts carved out in 90’s like Kendrapada, Jagatsinghpur, Bhadrak, Nayagarh, Nawarangpur and Sonepur also do not have any polytechincs.

Mr.Yadav said that the State Government has also decided to cover all the blocks with Industrial Training Institute (ITI).

Accordingly plans are afoot to cover 125 blocks which are yet to have an ITI.

In the meantime the Directorate of Technical Education & Training (DTET) has prepared a Vision Document keeping in view the growing demand for technical education.

Government of Orissa is also preparing a memorandum for the National Knowledge Commission, which will be included in the agenda of the Centre to provide future course for technical and technological development.
