CHAMBER OF COMMERCE WANTS IIM IN B’NGIR
Thursday, 17 July 2014 | PNS | Balangir | in Bhubaneswar
President of Balangir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) Tripurari Panigrahi has demanded setting up of the recently announced Indian Institute of Management (IIM) for Odisha at Balangir.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, Panigrahi pointed out that in this year’s Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitely it has been announced that an IIM would be set up in Odisha.
Balangir is one of the most backward districts in terms of education and other sectors. Setting up an institution like IIM would go a long way in providing better education facility to people of this region, Panigrahi said.
Panigrahi also demanded installation of a coach indicator in the Balangir railway station for convenience of passengers and better facilities in platform no. 2. Unless the railway authorities take steps in this regard, the Chamber of Commerce would resort to Rail Roko agitation, he added.
