The Tripura Government is all set to get its first dental college by the next academic session starting from June or July, an MLA said. Legislator Dr Dilip Kumar Das said, the college will be set up in the new building of IGM Hospital.

He further said based on an expert committee’s recommendations, the Health Department has already created some infrastructure for classrooms, operation theatres, pathology and administrative work. Dr Dilip Kumar Das is also the head of the IGM Hospital’s Rogi Kalayn Samity.

“Initially, the college will function from the new building of the hospital, but later, it will be shifted to Khejurbagan near Raj Bhavan where five acres of land has been allocated,” said CM Manik Saha.

“Once the complete infrastructure is in place, the CM, who is also the health minister, will approach the Dental Council of India (DCI) to visit the college for affiliation,” added Das.
