In the review meeting of October 29, held at Odisha Bhawan, New Delhi, Chief Minister was apprised that instead of State’s proposal to include six new districts under the National Horticulture Mission, Government of India has approved to cover whole of Odisha under the Programme.

Chief Minister was satisfied on being apprised about developments regarding conservation of various heritage sites and monumental edifices of Odisha.

 

As per a release from the government, because of the permissive possession given by the State Government in October 2012, measures for conservation of the world heritage monument Sun Temple Konark are to be undertaken by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) soon. While works started by ASI is going to help conservation of the Lingaraj Temple in Bhubaneswar, the Union Government has also agreed to Odisha’s proposal for upgrading Guru Kelucharan Odissi Research Centre to that of a Museum, said the release.

In addition, the long pending demand of the State to introduce a Special Train to cover the Buddhist Circuit of Odisha for promotion of tourism in the State has been acceded to and the first train is expected to start running in the 3rd week of December 2012.

Persistent efforts by the State have resulted in reconstitution of the Odisha Coastal Zone Management Authority, release of Central Share to the Odisha State Treatment Fund Society and announcement of time line for upgrading Biju Patnaik Domestic Airport to an International Airport by April 2013, the release said.

While allotment of 10 acres of land adjacent to AIIMS, Bhubaneswar has enabled the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to start process for Regional Institute of Para Medical Sciences at Bhubaneswar, Degree courses in Hotel Management would start from the next academic year if Odisha Government gives clearance to transfer land to the State Institute of Hotel Management Society, Bolangir.

‘Because of timely action taken by the State Government and regular monitoring by the Office of the Principal Resident Commissioner, Odisha, substantial progress has been achieved on many significant issues,’ said the official release.

Keeping in view the proposals still pending with various union ministries, Chief Minister advised the office of the Principal Resident Commissioner to closely monitor all such proposals and to secure necessary approvals at the earliest.

While visiting the exclusive exhibition organized by Boyanika in the premises of Odisha Bhawan, Naveen expressed his happiness over introduction of new designs and colours in the handloom sector to cater to the Delhi market. Chief Minister, however, advised that there should be constant endeavour for new designs matching demands of the highly competitive and rapidly changing markets of New Delhi and other parts of the country.
