World Bank likely to fund higher education

Berhampur: World Bank is likely to fund the development of higher education sector in Odisha.

"World Bank is keen to finance the higher education sector, particularly for improvement in teaching quality, learning and research process and improvement of gross enrolment ratio (GER) in the state," Bank representative Kurt Larsen said.

"The decision, however, will be taken by WB officials after discussion with the Odisha government," he added.

A formal meeting between Bank officials and the state government is likely to take place in July, World Bank consultant Soumi Saha said.

The state government has proposed to hold an international seminar on higher education policy in Bhubaneswar in July, where WB officials are expected to participate.

The World Bank has already financed one million dollar in India for the development of higher education sector in various states.
