Bhubaneswar,Dec 23(Odisha.in) BJB Junior College is all set to have its own hostel before the start of the next academic session.
The OMC has extended Rs 95 lakh to expedite completion of the project. The ground floor is expected to be inaugurated by Chief Minister towards the month-end.
The first floor would be named as OMC hall and two rooms reserved for candidates of OMC staff who secure admission in the college.
Lack of fund had delayed completion of the hostel infrastructure ever since its foundation was laid by the Chief Minister in 2002.
The OMC move comes after Chief Secretary Ajit Tripathy showed keen interest in completion of the project without any delay, said College principal R.N. Panda.
Rajya Sabha Member BJ Panda has already donated Rs 20 lakh from his MP-LAD fund. Similarly, about Rs 50 lakh has also released from the PL account of BJB Junior and BJB Autonomous College.
