The plan also calls for the redevelopment of 985 acres around the centrally-located transit station into a vibrant 24/7 destination called the Bhubaneswar Town Center District. Together, these centers would provide the foundation for a more inclusive, resource-efficient and technology-enabled city. There are also plans for a metro system of 30 km, which will serve the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

Healthcare Scenario in Bhubaneswar

The mortality rate for people in Odisha is much higher and life expectancy is lower than the national levels. Infant mortality and under five mortality rates are among the highest in the country, at close to 65 and 81 per thousand live births.

The health system in Odisha is largely publicly provided. The private sector has played a limited role. Geographic inaccessibility of health services, cultural barriers restricting the demand for healthcare, ignorance of health practices, poor service quality, and heavy reliance on informal health providers are few of the features of the health ecosystem in Odisha.

The scenario is same with Bhubaneswar city, lacking in good healthcare infrastructure & will need lot of efforts to rise upto mark.

Secondary Area


Bhubaneswar, declared as the smartest city of the country still has to cover a lot in the healthcare services & its infrastructure. The city itself is a populated city & along with it, the city has to manage approx. 60 to 70 lakh of tourists & pilgrims every year. Bhubaneswar forms a golden triangle with Konark & Puri & is the main destination for healthcare attention but the city is still not prepared to deal with such a huge mass of people. So, the present scenario of the city is giving lot of opportunities to new hospitals & multi-specialty centers to come & serve people.
