5T secretary VK Pandian on Monday had an interaction with employees of the LAccMI scheme and advised them to give top priority to security of the passengers.
The decision has been taken by the administration following stiff opposition by the temple trust board to its proposal for the demolition of the existing shrine and construction of a new temple.
As per the decision, land rights over 3,231 acres will be given to displaced families of 18 villages in Lakhanpur tehsil and one of Jharsuguda.
CM Naveen Patnaik has approved inclusion of 76 higher secondary schools and 50 degree colleges of Jajpur under the 5T transformation programme at a cost of Rs 61.5 crore.
Pandian reviewed the ongoing development project at Jayadev Pitha and directed its completion as per project timelines.
Taken up at a cost of Rs 1,771 crore, the projects will be operationalised in phases from November 2023 onwards. He directed the officials to ensure completion of all work within the deadlines.
The state government will dispose of applications related to renovation of religious places and community centres within seven days, said 5T secretary VK Pandian here on Tuesday.
The projects will cover 1,06,399 households in the district across all its three blocks.
He said considering the devastation caused by the super cyclone in 1999, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is determined to strengthen Odisha’s disaster management system.
On the day, the 5T secretary visited the Maa Durga temple and Alekh Mahima temple. He held discussion with the temple management committee members on developing the shrines.
