LIST (Lanjiasoura Institute of Science and Technology ) came into eminence in the year 1st July-2001 by the band of the social elite class people,
with a basic aim to serve the marginalized tribes ( the indigenous Soura,Khonds) and deprived sections – the Dalits of the Rayagada and Koraput District- one of
the most backward and mowoist effected district coming under the KBK districts (being identified by the Planning Commission, Govt. of India as the most back ward districts in south Odisha),
dedicating its socio-centric development services in a committed spirit. Human development is the unique social approach of LIST.
The harbinger of the society was Mr. Kailash Sabar- the Secretary/Chief Functionary/team leader having optimistic social outlook perpetuated with a
value-based development philosophy to serve the marginalized and weaker sections of the society, ensuring sustainable development.
