In its letter to Idco, the department claimed that CUTM president’s proposal was recommended for land allocation on payment basics as per law. The Institution will come up in the district of Gajapati, around Paralakhemundi. The school wants about 100 acres of land as it will have 17 labs, sources from universities said.
The CUTM has already founded the MS Swaminathan School of Agriculture, School of Fisheries and Bio-Engineering school. It has been proposed to launch a veterinary science and animal husbandry school to provide students and farmers with education and training. President of CUTM Mr. Muktikanta Mishra said, “District of Gajapati lies among the country’s aspirational regions. This tribal area needs adequate animal husbandry training and education because many people make a living by rearing goats, cows and other livestock. Because we have already developed schools that teach farming, Bio-engineering and fisheries to children, the new school is a reasonable addition. He said the school would also offer farmers instruction on animal rearing strategies and earn a decent living. “We are doing academic work. In the future, this international university will be mentoring our programmes,” he said.
