Government Colleges in Orissa
Private Colleges in Orissa
All Colleges in Orissa
Universities in Orissa
To achieve 30 GER by 2020 direct improvement
needed at all levels
  • Literacy of the population
  • Kids going to primary school
  • Kids going to secondary school
  • Young adults going to college
  • Young adults going to universities

To achieve 30 GER by 2020 other factors
  • Greater urbanization
  • Greater connectivity
  • Greater Job availability

Getting kids to School in backward districts a
different approach
  • Relax norms for 5-10 years for making private
    schools in these areas
  • E.g. Somebody could have a school in 1-2 rooms in
    his/her house.
  • Decide on an amount to spend on a kid for
    education (say Rs50/month)
  • Vouchers of that amount given to parents to pay
    to the school where the kid is enrolled in
  • Positives
  • More schools more competition better
    enrollment more efforts on teaching
  • Schools go after getting students so as to make
    more money
  • Schools try to be better so as to get more
  • Lots of jobs as school teachers, school makers,
    school officials, etc.
  • Details
  • Literature on Vouchers
  • School Choice Movement http//schoolchoice.in/
  • Book The Beautiful Tree by Professor James
    Tooley (now lives in Hyderabad)
  • Also a chapter in Narayana Murthys book A
    Better India, a better world
  • Notes
  • The above can be done in conjunction with and/or
    can be integrated into the schemes such as Sarva
    Siksha Abhijan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha

Broadening the scope of model schools in blocks
Knowledge centers
  • Each model school augmented with a knowledge
    center accessible to the general public after
    class hours and during weekend. It will contain
  • A well stocked library
  • An Internet lab with high speed connection and
    tens of computers
  • Meeting rooms
  • A small auditorium (showing educational movies
    multiples times week)
  • HR Counseling and information dissemination
  • Literacy center
  • Center designed such that it is accessible from
    the school side and from outside the school.
  • An MHRD joint secretary loves this idea and
    promises to help pilot this in Orissa and channel
    it through planning commission
  • A double sized version of the above in towns with
    larger populations (say about 20K or above)
  • Examples Kamkhianagar, Malkangiri, etc.
  • Future Broaden this to Panchayat level
  • Now Parallel Scheme for city localities,
    starting with localities near slums
  • Follow the example of Bakul Library in Satya
    Nagar, Bhubaneswar

Government vocational education in Orissa current
  • Vocational Junior Colleges
  • Current subjects in the 231 vocational junior
  • Agriculture Diarying, Poultry farming,
    Horticulture, Seri culture, Inland Fisheries,
    Crop production
  • Health Parmedical Medical Laboratory
  • Engineering Technology Audio Visual
    Technician, Building mainetnance, Computer
    Technique, Repair Maintenance of electrical
    domestic appliance, R M of power driven farm
  • Business Commerce Accountancy auditing,
    Insurance, Office management, tax assistant
  • Home Science Creche pre-school management,
    Catering restaurant management
  • Other Textile designing, tourism travel
  • Eligible after Matric
  • Teachers are required to have stringent
  • Specialized Institutes Apparel Training and
    Design Center, Tool room, Construction academy
    (Gopalpur), Food craft institute, Gems
    Jewelery, II Handloom Technology, Indian
    Institute of Welding, Plumbing Institute, Zee
    Institute of Creative Arts, NTTF Gopalpur and
    Kalinganagar, ITIs.

Augmenting the vocational education
  • Issues
  • Learning many trades/skills do not need matric
    pass degrees
  • Teaching many trades/skills do not require
    degrees requires skills
  • Possibly missing trades Quality plumbing,
    masonary, auto repair, landscape design,
  • Proposal Orissa Open and Skills University
    (supported by IGNOU and DEC encouraged by an
    MHRD joint secretary) OOSU
  • Taking admission does not require matric pass
  • Teachers need not have degrees
  • Students go through certificates
  • Certificates can be added up to degrees
  • Start with 13 community colleges under the
    university then one in each district
  • The University and the community colleges allowed
    to add certificates and degrees and open centers
    and branches with minimal hassle and with minimal
    lead time

The Open aspect of the OOSU
  • School dropouts after taking some modules can
    become eligible to join a regular 2 program.
  • Someone without a 2 after taking some
    certificates can become eligible to join a 3
  • Etc.

Traditional Higher Education Colleges and
  • Some issues to be tackled
  • Spreading higher education opportunities across
    the state
  • Lecturers feeling ownership of the colleges where
    they teach
  • Multiple Knowledge hubs (of varying degrees) in
    the state
  • Maintaining and improving existing universities
    and institutions

Existing Universities in Orissa
Spreading higher education across the states
Spreading higher education across the state At
least one university in each undivided district
  • Cuttack
  • Puri
  • Balasore
  • Ganjam
  • Sambalpur
  • Sundergarh
  • Mayurbhanj
  • Koraput
  • Keonjhar - Central Orissa University, Keonjhar
  • Dhenkanal Central Orissa University, Angul
  • Kalahandi South Orissa University, Bhawanipatna
  • Balangir West Orissa University, Balangir
  • Kandhamala Indira Gandhi National Tribal
    University, Kandhamala campus

Lecturers feeling ownership of the colleges where
they teach
  • No more affiliated government colleges by 2020
  • Universities with constituent colleges
  • New metropolitan universities
  • Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Metropolitan Universities
  • Rourkela University
  • Khallikote University
  • GM University
  • New regional universities
  • Central Orissa University, Keonjhar
  • Central Orissa University, Angul
  • West Orissa University, Balangir
  • South Orissa University, Bhawanipatna
  • Old regional universities with constituent
  • FM University
  • North Orissa university, Baripada
  • Rest are autonomous colleges clustered
  • Lecture appointments are with respect to
    universities or autonomous colleges
  • No transfers outside of universities or clusters

Knowledge Hubs and Knowledge Centers global
  • Orissas population of 3.67 crores is the same as
    that of Californias.
  • Orissas area of 155.82K sq km is close to the
    population of New York (141.3K sq km) and
    Connecticut (14.356K sq km) put together

Knowledge Hubs and Knowledge Centers with an aim
to be competitive globally
  • Tier 1 An international level knowledge hub that
    can compete with the best knowledge hubs of the
    world such as the San Francisco-San Jose area or
    the Boston metropolitan area.
  • Tier 2 4 knowledge hubs comparable to current
    tier 2 cities in India.
  • At least two universities, at least one national
    level institution or university, multiple
    engineering colleges, at least one medical
    college and an independent research
  • Tier 3 Urban agglomerations aiming to have
    varied independent higher education
    infrastructure such as an autonomous college that
    imparts Masters degree, an engineering school, an
    engineering college, a university within 60 kms,
    and a medical college within 60 kms.
  • Tier 4 Each district HQ or town with population
    greater than 20K with its own knowledge
  • A government college offering arts, science and
    commerce degrees.
  • At least one community college.
  • A Knowledge Center (library, Internet lab,
    meeting rooms, a small auditorium, HR Counseling
    and information dissemination center, Literacy
  • Two knowledge corridors Cuttack-Bhubaneswar-Berha
    mpur Rourkela-Jharsuguda-Sambalpur

Bhubaneswar-Puri area as a knowledge hub soon to
have 25 universities
  • Existing Universities
  • Upcoming universities
  • IIT Bhubaneswar (MIT)
  • NISER Bhubaneswar (Cal Tech)
  • Utkal University
  • Orissa U of Agriculture and Tech.
  • Ravenshaw University
  • IIIT Bhubaneswar
  • Utkal Univ. of Culture
  • Sri Jagannath University
  • National Law University
  • KIIT deemed University
  • SOA deemed University
  • 56 additional four year engineering colleges,
    some with graduate programs
  • Vedanta University (Stanford)
  • National University (Berkeley)
  • AIIMS Bhubaneswar
  • Sri Sri University
  • ICFAI University
  • Jagadguru Kripalu University
  • Orissa Open University
  • National Institute of Design (?)
  • 6 deemed university applications in pipeline
  • 30 Colleges offering Bachelors in non
    engineering subjects (some offering graduate

Bhubaneswar Further steps to make it an
international level knowledge hub
  • Vedanta University is a game changer and would
    propel this area beyond any knowledge center in
    India and towards an international knowledge
  • The airport upgraded to an international airport.
  • Larger research centers need to be pursued and
    established in this area.
  • Although this area has a few research centers
    already, most of them are small with at most 20
    researchers. The current knowledge hubs of the
    country such as Pune, Hyderabad or Bangalore, or
    even smaller centers such as Indore and
    Alllahabad have large research centers with 100s
    of researchers.
  • Hence, steps need to be taken to get at least one
    large research center. For example, a branch of
    TIFR should be pursued.
  • In addition steps need to be taken so that
    Institute of Mathematics and Applications and
    the Institute of Material Sciences are taken over
    by the central government.

    meeting rooms, a small auditorium, HR Counseling
    and information dissemination center, Literacy

Resources for the plans
  • Center
  • State
  • Private Organizations
  • PPP

Pursuing the Central Government some high
priority items
  • NID
  • IIPH
  • Pushing various public sector that take Orissa's
    minerals and/or pollute Orissa to contribute
    significantly to Orissa's HRD. Some of these
    public sectors are SAIL, NTPC, NALCO, and CIL.
  • Establishment of IIIT Berhampur.
  • Expansion of NIT Rourkela to have a medical
  • Adoption if VSSUT, Burla to an IIEST (Indian
    Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology)
  • Establishment of a branch of Indira Gandhi
    National Tribal University InKandhamala
  • A DOD Medical College in Balasore

Some state government priorities
  • Develop and implement an improvement plan for the
    existing colleges and universities in Orissa.
    Create a one time fund (say 1000 crores) for
    this purpose.
  • Push for and monitor all the central government
    related initiative mentioned
  • Monitor the progress of Vedanta university
  • Send feelers to other industrialists for HRD
  • Pursue an IIM Calcutta campus in Orissa.

Some plan related to private organizations
  • Push Birlas to make progress on their BITS
    Pilani, Orissa campus plan.
  • Pursuse ISB for a campus in Orissa.
  • Push Mittal, POSCO, Jindal, Tatas for significant
    contribution to HRD.
  • Facilitate the establishment of a Xavier
    University by the XIMB people.
  • Help some of the top performing and/or unique
    private educational institutions, especially in
    the interior of Orissa, to become bigger,
    including making some of them universities. In
    particular, at this time following are some
    institutions which should be rewarded.
  • KISS (Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences) - for
    its initiatives to educate Adivasis.
  • GIET, Gunupur (for establishing a quality
    institution in an interior area where there is
  • JITM, Parlakhemundi (for establishing a quality
    institution in an interior area where there is
  • Silicon, Bhubaneswar (for its quality)
  • NIST, Berhampur (for its quality and to cater to
    Berhampur area)

  • Collaborate with a trust to establish an PIO/NRI
  • Establish several medical Colleges across the
    state in PPP mode. The state government should
    offer its larger district hospital and beds and
    partner with private organizations to establish
    many more medical colleges. Since not many
    students are able to afford the existing fully
    private medical colleges (KIMS, Hi-tech, SUM) the
    state government can reduce the cost of running
    and operating a medical college by offering its
    hospital, beds, its doctors and staff. The
    private party then has to spend much less. 
  • Monitor the establishment of the private medical
    colleges in Bhawanipatna, Balangir and Rourkela
    to which the government gave free land and some
    seed money.
  • Help IIIT Bhubaneswar to become a top-notch IIIT
    and following Andhra Pradesh, after 5 years,
    establish branches of IIIT Bhubaneswar in other
    locations of the state.
  • Encourage private contribution to the govt.
    engineering colleges.
