NEW DELHI: Vedanta Limited, a globally diversified natural resources company, has partnered with the State Government of Odisha to set-up a Government Medical College in Bhangabari at Bhawanipatna, Kalahandi District.

Chief Minister of Odisha, Naveen Patnaik laid the foundation stone of the facility at a grand ceremony last week. The company has projected an estimated investment of Rs 100 crore to provide infrastructural support for the project.

As a long term investor in Odisha, in August 2016, Anil Agarwal, Chairman, Vedanta had committed Vedanta’s support to the project of setting up the medical college, as Vedanta aims to support the development goals of its host communities.

The state-of-the-art hospital will provide easy access to medical treatments for the communities residing in the region. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2018 and the first batch of academic session would graduate from 2019-20. Improved medical and educational facilities for the community provide a stronger platform for the communities to broaden the base for an inclusive economic growth.vedanta-lays-foundation-stone-of-government-medical-college-in-kalahandi
