Team For Mutt Care

Shree Jagannath Temple Managing Committee has resolved for creation of a Sub-Committee for renovation of religious institutions like Mutts.

The decision in this regard was taken at the Managing Committee meeting held under the chairmanship of Gajapati Maharaja of Puri Divya Singh Deb.

The committee also proposed five developmental projects to the state government. They included demarcation of chariot path (Ratha Danda) as a heritage corridor, a park at Jagannath Ballav, peripheral development of the Jagannath temple, development of Gundicha temple and a model Gugukul for training servitors.
Regarding the proposed Gurukul, an official said it will  be set up over a patch of land measuring around 12 acres.

The children of servitors who are enrolled in other schools will also get scholarship from the Government, said Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) Chief Administrator, Krishan Kumar after the meeting.
Dr.Kumar said the proposed sub-committee for the development of mutts, will coordinate between the mutts in Puri and the temple administration.
In another issue, the Managing Committee expressed concern over holding the annual Rath Jatra of Lord Jagannath on separate dates in various places.
The meeting resolved that Lord Jagannth's Rath Jatra should be conducted across the world on one date according to the Hindu Almanac.
It should be held on the same day which is second day of Ashadha month Sukla Pakshya.  Letters will be written in this regard to other states where the Annual Ratha Jatra of Lord Jagannath is being celebrated, the officer informed.
