The government in Tripura has decided to set up three more professional colleges  in the areas like dental, ayurvedic and homeopathic under public-private partnership (PPP) models. Health Minister Tapan Chakraborty said, “The ayurvedic college will be established at Udaipur, the homeopathic college at Kailasahar in northern Tripura and the dental college in Agartala.”

Many private organisations from India had submitted bids expressing their keenness to set up the colleges. For the ayurvedic and homeopathic colleges, the central government has sanctioned Rs.8.10 crore. The state has allotted land for setting up of the three 50-seater medical colleges, he added.

With the establishment of two medical colleges with 100 seats each in six years, Agartala has the distinction of being the only city in the northeast to have two medical colleges.
