09 July 2018


Bhubaneswar: Ensuring the convenience of senior citizens and specially-abled persons during the crowded Rath Yatra, an eco-friendly Electric Vehicle service was flagged off by NALCO authorities yesterday.

The initiative is a step towards developing Puri under the ‘Swachh Iconic Place’ project.

Dr. Tapan Kumar Chand, CMD of NALCO, who inaugurated the service said, ‘’We would like Puri to be known across the country and world as one of the cleanest religious and tourist destinations.’’

This free public service will be maintained for the next five years and will help devotees commute between Jagannath Ballav Math and Jagannath Temple smoothly.
