Union Minister Pratap Sarangi recently said a Central Tool Room-cum-Training Centre (CTTC) will be set up in Rourkela at a cost of Rs. 200 crore. Land for the project will be provided by the State Government.The Union Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises informed this after his meeting with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at Loka Seva Bhavan here. This was Sarangi’s first official meeting with Naveen after taking charge as Union Minister.
“The proposed CTTC will have four extension centres in Berhampur, Keonjhar, Kalahandi and Balasore and each will cost Rs. 20 crore. While proposals for two have been sent, the third is in process,” Sarangi said.
He said the proposal for Balasore has not been sent even if the land has been identified. “Odisha Government is requested to provide land to the CTTC extension centres to be set up at Balasore, Berhampur, Keonjhar and Kalahandi,” Sarangi tweeted.
The Ministry, he said, has also decided to set up 45 MSME clusters in Odisha. Sarangi, who is also in-charge of Ministry of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, said it has been decided to take up pisciculture in 6,700 acres of unused land in coastal districts. “I have taken up the matter with the Chief Minister and he has agreed,” he added.
