Observation from the ground on Vedanta University
Good news from Orissa. Vedanta University is for real.
It will be unlike any other university in India.
The land acquisition is going smoothly. Unlike POSCO and others,
the state government is out of the process. Most of the land is
state government and/or belong to Lord Jagannath. Not much private land.
They have opened an office in Puri to acquire land. It seems their
latest offer is to acquire paddy cultivated land at Rs. 2 lakh/acre.
Before the Vedanta University offer, the land was available at Rs. 60K/acre.
