01 October 2019


Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) for the second consecutive day on Tuesday demolished all makeshift cabins, huts, structures etc. near the Regional Transport Office (RTO)-2 erected on government land here.

The BDA and BMC had carried out a similar demolition drive at RTO-1 on Monday.

The demolition drive is in line with the steps advised by Transport Commissioner Sanjeeb Panda to all Regional Transport Officers through a circular issued on Friday last to free RTO offices across the State from the influence of middlemen/agents.

Panda had directed RTOs for dismantling of all gomutis / temporary huts etc. erected inside the office premises or on the side of boundary wall on government land with the help of local authority and create a people friendly ambience in these offices.

Reports said as many as seven illegal structures near the RTO-2 erected on government land were demolished.

Notably, these huts, cabins etc. functioned as site offices of the middlemen and agents who used to operate in the RTO office.
