Planning and coordination Minister Anananga Udaya Singhdeo also discussed with the WODC officials in this regard and the MoU would be signed some time Next week .
The WODC had invited expression of interest for the Medical College and Hospital in Balangir district last year in view of Shree Balaji Education and Charitable Trust backing out of the project.
The RVS Group will invest at least Rs 100 crore, while the WODC would provide a Rs 10-crore grant and 25 acres of land in Balangir. The Medical College will have an intake capacity of 100 with a 300-bed Hospital at its initial stage.
Subsequently it would be enhanced to a 500-bed Hospital and gradually to a 1,000-bedded super specialty Hospital .
