IIT Kharagpur, Bhubaneswar Campus
We, Santosh K. Tripathy & myself, are just coming from a meeting at the IIT KGP - Bhubaneswar campus, the new name for the IIT extension centre at Bhubaneswar as announced by the IIT Kharagpur Director Prof. S.K.Dubey in the meeting. The Director had a meeting with the Chief Minister Mr. Navin Pattnaik just prior to the meeting at the campus today evening. He has discussed in detail about the extension plans for Bhubaneswar. Though he was tight lipped about the detailed discussion, but gave hints about introduction of new courses like the courses on 'Intellectual Property Rights', 'Interpersonal Communication', etc. in the BBSR campus. He said that the Chief Minister would very soon come out with the announcements for further extension plans on infrastructure development etc. of the BBSR campus. This is certainly a piece of good news though Agamee Odisha should continue to press the issue further till the Government comes out with a concrete plan.
