Dr. Subrat Acharya, a renowned liver transplant physician, has taken charge as Pro-Chancellor of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) University. Recently, he retired from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi and returned to his home state Odisha.

On taking charge as Pro-Chancellor, he ensured high-quality education at KIIT. He mentioned that best health care would be provided to the public through Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS). The students from the state, as well as neighbouring states, would get immense benefit by joining KIIT University.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
