Out of the revised project completion cost, the Cabinet approved funding of Rs 562.58 crore from the budgetary allocation of the state government, spreading across three financial years starting 2020-21, he said.
The remaining amount is to be funded through District Mineral Foundation (DMF) Sundargarh, Odisha Sports Development Fund (OSDF) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund, he said, adding that the entire project is scheduled to be completed by December 2022. After the initiation of the project, based on site conditions and technical vetting by experts, including from IIT Bombay, there was upgradation of the design and safety parameters to make the structures disaster resilient.
