Bhubaneswar, Nov 20: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and Odisha State Housing Board (OSHB) have distributed ‘lease deed’ to more than hundred beneficiaries of different schemes of these two organisations at a function jointly organized by BDA and OSHB held at Jaydev Bhawan in the State Capital today.
Total 121 lease deeds, which includes 78 of BDA and 43 of OSHB were handed over to the beneficiaries. Each beneficiary was given a plant along with their property title document to encourage them planting a tree and taking care of it like their family member.
