Bhubaneswar, Nov 23: Odisha government has considered formulating a suitable policy for regularising the land in favour of educational institutions.

The decision was taken after several institutes institutions failed to record the land due to inability to pay the dues like premium, incidental charges, annual ground rent, cess, encroachment fees with penalty and interest.

The state government, way back in the year 1977 had taken policy decision to provide government land measuring up to 10 acres in urban areas and up to 15 acres in rural areas, free of premium for establishment of colleges.

As per the new policy, all land, irrespective of extent of area, under occupation of standalone government degree colleges (including autonomous and non- autonomous government colleges) and standalone government higher secondary schools will be recorded in the name of Higher Education Department and School & Mass Education Department respectively with marfat of the concerned institutes.
