Bhubaneswar: The State Government would establish an Iconic Adarsh Vidyalaya in Bhubaneswar, for which foundation stone would be laid on September 5 on the occasion of Teacher’s Day, informed School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash on Friday.
The higher secondary school for Classes-XI and XII would be built on 25 acres of land at Andharua in the city at an expenditure of Rs 100 crore, he said.
