BERHAMPUR: IISER AUTHORITIES PLACED PROBLEMS TO COLLECTOR,GANJAM Featured

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

WATER IS MAJOR ISSUE 

BERHAMPUR,24/06/19: Even after three years of its functioning, the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) is running from a transit campus here amid inadequate facilities. 

the Central Government had set up the seventh IISER of the country in Berhampur in 2016.The premier institute has been functioning from a Government ITI here since 2016. 

Though the state government had allotted 200-acre land at Laudigaon village under Kanishi tehsil,under construction work failed to take off due to non-availability of water at the proposed site. 

Notably the proposed institute comes under the constituency of MLA Gopalpur.  

As groundwater level depleted drastically at the site, arranging water for construction work will be highly expensive. 

Even the proposed site is nearer to the sea and the authorities concerned have not obtained the necessary clearance from Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ).  

According to the information the institute requires around 25,000 litres of water daily for drinking as well as research purpose.In order to the issues, a meeting was convened where IISER authorities apprised Ganjam Collector Vijay Amrita Kulange of the problems at Chhatrapur recently. 

It was revealed that last year, IISER had sought two more floors from the ITI, which, however, refused.Later, the ITI authorities agreed, but demanded Rs 95 lakh from IISER to shift the equipment from these two floors. 

However, the issue remained unresolved as the IISER authorities agreed to pay only Rs 65 lakh as per estimation of the CPWD.  

The Collector directed the Executive Engineer of PHEO to initiate necessary measures to provide adequate water to both transit and permanent campuses. 

The IISER authorities also proposed to construct three approach roads from the NH  to its new campus immediately. The Collector said work on the approach roads will begin after sanction of funds.  

He also assured that he will urge the state government to sanction Rs11 crore for supplying power to IISER from Narendrapur GRID, also directed the ADM to monitor progress.
