Ancient and medieval eraedit

Historically, Odisha has been at the forefront of education and research The ruins of a major ancient university, Puspagiri, were recently discovered in Odisha Scholars from far away lands, such as Greece, Persia and China used to study philosophy, astronomy, mathematics and science at this famed university Along with Takshashila and Nalanda universities, Puspagiri was among the oldest universities in the world All three universities were mentioned by the Chinese traveler Huien Tsang Xuanzang, who visited India in the 7th century, but unlike the others, the whereabouts of Puspagiri university were unknown until recently As of 2007, the ruins of this university have not been fully excavated yet12 Odisha's education prospered under Hindu and Buddhist rule However, it went into a period of decline under the Sun dynasty, after 1568 The Muslims and the Marathas, who occupied Odisha before the British, did little to spread education3full citation needed Before the creation of modern Odisha, the mainstay of the education system were the Sanskrit Pathsalas, and the Maktabs, which existed in Cuttack, Balasore, Puri, Angul and Sambalpur, local Chatasalis to cater to grassroot level education, as well as advanced centers of Oriental learning4

Colonial eraedit

The colonialization of Odisha by the British East India Company in 1803 proved disastrous to Odisha in all spheres It led to the collapse of the traditional education system Yet, Odisha being one of the last Indian territories to come under the British rule became exposed much later than other parts of India to the system of education they introduced Under the East India Company, Christian missionaries who took up printing the Old and New Testaments in Oriya, also contributed to some growth in education The first primary school was created in 1822 by missionaries

The Cuttack Zilla school, Odisha's first modern school up to matriculation level, was established in 1866 It was extended to become a Collegiate school in 1868, which provided first and second year college education to Oriya students However, Oriyas were severely disadvantaged by having to attend Presidency College in Kolkata for BA degrees This was until the collegiate branch of Zilla school was converted into a full bachelor's degree granting college under the then commissioner, T E Ravenshaw This college was named as Ravenshaw College after him

Women's education was taken up with the establishment of the Ravenshaw Hindu Girls' School in 1873 The Maharajah of Keonjhar, the Rani or Talcher, amongst other notable Oriya personalities, who made contributions Later, Reba Ray, a former student of this school and Sailabala Das became instrumental in furthering the cause of women's education, leading to the creation of the Sailabala Women's College, Cuttack

Medical education began with the opening of the first medical school in 1876, by Dr Stewart, the Civil Surgeon of Cuttack, who also translated the Materia Medica into Oriya The first industrial school was opened in 1884, in Alalpur, Balasore A survey school began at the same time in Cuttack, which later on became the Orissa School of Engineering, marking the beginnings of technical education in the state5full citation needed

The Odisha legislature was going to consider a specific act to make Vedanta university a statutory bodycitation needed After the passage of the act, the university would have established its own, independent governing board, where the Odisha government would not exercise any controlcitation needed Later news reports suggested that the plan for the Vedanta University was a "closed chapter" 68

Former central government neglect of Odishaedit

Until 2007, the Ministry of Human Resources and Development MHRD of the Government of India had set up several premier technical institutes, across the country that produce India's world class talent pool in science, engineering, and management, and contribute strongly to the economic development of the state where they are located as well as the nation These institutions included the original seven IITs, the Indian Institute of Science, the original five IIMs, the Indian Statistical Institute, several earlier central universities, and a few other smaller institutions, all of which receive direct funding from the center69 There were reports of large scale discrimination in setting up these institutions of higher learning against a few states, especially Odisha70 It was observed within scholarly circles that Odisha was routinely discriminated against by the Indian government, which had caused the state to lag behind the rest of the nation in terms of infrastructure, poverty reduction, literacy, education, and health until very recently7172737475767778

Until recently, none of the premier institutions of national importance were located in the state of Odisha79808182 In terms of per capita funding received from the HRD ministry, it was among the bottom-most of all states along with Bihar and Rajasthan, and a few very small states in the north eastern region698384 The non-allocation of quality educational institutions to the state of Odisha by New Delhi has been interpreted by various quarters, ranging from politicians to Oriya academics living abroad, as proof of discrimination against the state by the HRD ministry Odisha, the 9th largest state of India, which has 36% of the population of India and abundance of natural resources, received a minuscule 073% of the allocated budget7083858687 The inequitable distribution of resources by the central government to the various states was identified in 1991 as a cause of regional disparities8588 Studies had blamed central government policies above any other factor, as the cause of Odisha's recent backwardness85899091929394

There were also early allegations of discrimination in establishing newer institutions, such as the IIESTs, a group of technical institutions planned to be IIT clones They were set up by upgrading existing NITs and other state funded prominent engineering institutions Several institutions have been identified by the Indian government for this purpose,95 but none in Odisha, which had the University College of Engineering at Burla, one of the oldest in India,96 as well as NIT, Rourkela which ranked higher than four of the five institutions that were selected29 It has been alleged that the government had originally picked Bhubaneswar, the capital city of Odisha as one of the locations for an IISER, which was later shifted to Kolkata97

As of 2009, there is a demand for one of the new IIMs to be established in Odisha, on grounds that the state is witnessing large-scale foreign investment, and because until recently, it had been the bottom-most state in Indian central government funded institutions9899
