Odisha State Bureau of Text Book Preparation and Production organizes workshops/seminars
on various topics in Higher Education. The Bureau had organized such a workshop
on “Creative Methods for Promoting Reading Habits among Adolescents” on last 20th
February, 2015 to sensitize the college authorities for promoting a “reading culture”.
Workshop on the same topic will be organized by the Bureau in different places of
Odisha in the near future. It is worth mentioning that the Bureau has been engaged
in the preparation of blank answer scripts for different Universities and Autonomous
colleges. Books for Joint Entrance Examination (J.E.E.) have been published in Mathematics,
Physics, Botany and Zoology. The Bureau has produced books with multi coloured pictures
based on text for neoliterates as per the order from Mass Education Department,
The Bureau was getting grants from both state and central Govt. since its establishment
in 1970. Fortunately the Bureau has become financially self sufficient and is functioning
in its own building at Suka Vihar, Bhubaneswar which is known as “Pustak Bhavan”.
Odisha State Bureau of Text Book Preparation and Production marches on as a successful
institution both from administrative and financial point of view. It has not made
compromise with the quality of publication under any circumstances. It has become
successful in reaching at its destination through the blessings, vision and guidance
of the President and Vice President, learned authors and support of readers. The
Bureau has been able to deliver its products on time on account of perseverance
and dedicated commitment of all the staffs of this organisation. We have got the
confidence that this organisation will continue to prosper in the days to come.
Odia language was accorded the status of classical language on 11th March, 2014.

Bureau rededicates itself on this day our commitment to support in achieving eminence
in Higher Education in Odisha through preparation and production of high quality
