Bhubaneswar: The union government has given the green signal for the opening of a medical college at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) campus in Odisha’s Rourkela.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, in a letter to the NIT-Rourkela Director, said the institution should submit an application in this regard during 15th June to 7th July.
