Jajpur:2/3/19: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today inaugurated the second or rural campus of State’s premier Utkal University at Chandikhole during his visit to Jajpur district.

Two courses — master degree in Public Health and MBA in Rural Management — will start from the rural campus. The classes will be commenced from its temporary campus at Baba Bhairabananda College near the demarcated site for the permanent campus.

With the inauguration of the second campus, the university will start classes from this academic session.

Official sources said that the courses will be offered in the second campus keeping the need of industries in the mineral-rich Jajpur district in mind.

The State government has sanctioned Rs 25 crore for the rural campus. A technology park will be set up on the premises to develop indigenous technology at the second campus of Utkal University.

Notably, the State government had demarcated 66.3-acre land near Baba Bhairabananda College at Chandikhol. The land possession was delayed due to some litigation. Later, the foundation stone of the second campus was laid by the Higher Education Minister Ananta Das on July 31 in 2017.
