2015 budget announces an IISER for Odisha; Odisha government decides to set it up in Berhampur
The Odisha government has announced that this new IISER will be in Berhampur. This is acceptable as NISER (an alternative to IISER) was established in Bhubaneswar in 2006-07 (with classes starting in 2007) and in fact this year (2015) NISER Bhubaneswar has moved to its own permanent campus near Jatni.
We applaud the BJP and its current government for announcing an IISER in Odisha. BJP was a big supporter of this whole movement from its early days and now its government has directly contributed in the establishment of an IISER in Odisha.
