BERHAMPUR : Collector, Prem Chandra Chaudhury inaugurated five new facilities at the Kaviraj Ananta Tripathy Sharma Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya (KATSAM) at Ankuspur, on the outskirts of the  city on Tuesday.


They are herbal and rasa shastra departments, a boys hostel, clinical department and a library. The Collector also reviewed functioning of the college and its hospital.

Apart from the offering Ayurveda education, the college has an outdoor and 100-bed hospital. Apparently, the college suffers from large scale vacancies in teaching and non-teaching posts.

While the sanctioned teacher posts for the college is 34, it is currently managing with 22 teachers. Established in 1975, the college admits 30 students per year for five-and-half-year course and is affiliated to Berhampur University.

It failed to meet the norms of Central Council of Indian Medicines on several occasions as a result of which, the council had cancelled admission of students in the past.
