Union Petroleum and Natural Gas, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to direct the Atomic Energy Department for budgetary provision to establish a hub of the Tata Memorial Centre in the campus of the Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar.

As per a proposal by the Institute of Physics, the proposed hub will provide affordable care for cancer patients of the State and will also initiate and lead an advanced research in this field as well as complex biological systems. The hub will be an equivalent way to the ones planned at Chandigarh and the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi.

Pradhan stated that a lot of patients from Odisha and neighbouring States visit the Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai for treatment. They face problem due to long waiting period and expensive cost of living at Mumbai. Many patients had to terminate their treatment. The proposed hub of TMC would serve the cancer patients of Odisha and other neighbouring States.
