Koraput: The Central University in Koraput has got a new name.
It will now be known as the ‘Central University of Odisha’ instead of ‘Central University of Orissa’ after President Ramnath Kovind gave his assent to the Central Universities (Amendment) Act, 2019.
Vice-Chancellor Sharat Kumar Palita informed the varsity community about it during his Independence Day address.
He said that since the name of the state was changed from Orissa to Odisha in 2011, this was long overdue. “It is a great moment for the CUO community as well as the people of Odisha”.
