Abstract

This paper examines the rising demand for Koshala state in Orissa and looks for factors responsible for it. It found that the issue of underdevelopment and state apathy-cum-failures in addressing the same has been the single most important factor contributed for the demand for Koshala state. The study prescribes suitable policies for Orissa government to adopt to contain the demand for this new state.
