Six more DIETs for teachers training centres in Odisha soon

Bhubaneswar, October 30: In view of nearly 10, 000 school teachers not getting proper training facility due to lack of training centres, the Odisha Government has decided to set up six District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) in six districts in the State soon.

“The DIETs will be opened in Malkangiri, Nuapada, Boudh, Jharsuguda, Deogarh and Sonepur districts. Earlier, only 24 districts of the State had DIETs,” said Scholl and Mass Education Minister Debi Prasad Mishra.

He informed that the State Finance department has approved the proposal after the recommendation of the Teacher Educational Research Appraisal Board.

With the opening of six more DIETs nearly 3000 teachers can impart training annually while 50 more teachers will impart training at six new centres each.


The DIETs provide academic and resource support at the grassroots level for the success of the various strategies and programmes being undertaken in the areas of elementary and adult education.
