Forum to press for IIM in Berhampur

The demand for the establishment of an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Berhampur is getting stronger. Different organisations and dignitaries of the city have come together to form ‘Forum for IIM in Berhampur’ to create public awareness and to press upon the Centre and State government for its fulfilment.

According to the forum no major national institution has been established in southern Odisha. According to them most national institutes are being established in Bhubaneswar and a few in Cuttack and Rourkela. The only national-level institute in south Odisha is the Central University in Koraput, which has also not become a full-fledged institution.

According to them, Berhampur is a major trading centre of Odisha and it would develop further because of the all-weather Gopalpur port and the proposed Industrial Park of Tata Steel. Berhampur is fast emerging as a major educational hub of the State with one university, a medical college, 15 engineering colleges, two pharmacy colleges, a nursing college, a Government College of fisheries, two autonomous colleges and thirty other colleges. They say the State government should press upon the Central government to consider establishing an IIM in Berhampur, as the Central government has decided to have IIMs in most States. Berhampur MLA Ramesh C. Chyaupatnaik has also supported this demand.
