SAMBALPUR: The temporary campus of Indian Institute of Management, Sambalpur (IIM-S) will be shifted to Sambalpur University after September this year. At present, the premier institution is being run from a private institution, Silicon Institute of Technology (SIT), at Sason here.Informing this, Director of IIM-S Mahadeo Jaiswal said the institute will run from the Sambalpur University till permanent campus of IIM-S at Basantpur here gets ready. The permanent campus is likely to be ready within next three years while the work on the boundary wall has already started. 


Jaiswal said they will soon sign an MoU with the Sambalpur University in this regard. The State Government has already allotted some buildings on university campus to run the IIM-S. 
The Director said an elite B-school runs for 24 hours but they face problems in taking class during evening hours as the SIT is located in an isolated place. The faculty members of IIM-S could take classes in evening hours after shifting of the temporary campus to Sambalpur University. Moreover, permanent faculty members are being recruited.


The B-school requires modern class rooms for the students. However, IIM-S cannot upgrade the class rooms on temporary campus as the Government does not allow upgrading infrastructure in a private building. However, they can upgrade class rooms at the university, Jaiswal said. 
Vice-Chancellor of Sambalpur University CR Tripathy said the draft copy of the MoU has already been sent to the Central Government for approval. Apart from providing building to run the IIM-S, hostel facility will be provided to the students, he added.
