One of the renowned council of the country, Veterinary Council of India (VCI), has put up plans in front of the Odisha's state government to set up a separate veterinary university. The university will focus on some of the important aspects of the field like animal husbandry and the livestock.

"I proposed the chief minister Naveen Patnaik to set up a separate veterinary university in the state so that we can improve research on various subjects of veterinary sciences . It would also help in improving services. The proposal is under active consideration of the state government" says Narayan Mohanty, president of VCI.

He stated further "lack of funds and poor infrastructure in both research and service sectors are main reasons for unsatisfactory growth in veterinary sciences." in India 13 states have separate veterinary universities.

VCI is also planning to have a uniform syllabus in all veterinary colleges across India and customized it according the local needs.

Damodhar Rout, Health Minister of the state says "the job of a veterinarian is most difficult as he cannot take the version of the patient. The meet will help to develop advanced technological support and facilities in the Orissa university of Agriculture and Technology."
