Puri: Shree Jagannath Temple Administration today denied approving any rate chart hoarding of Mahaprasad (Abhada). Notably rate chart hoardings have been put up in different parts of the Jagannath Temple displaying the rate of abhada.
When asked by media persons about the rate chart display today, SJTA Pradeepta Kumar Mohapatra said that he had never approved such a chart.
“I have never approved any such chart hoarding of Mahaprasad. The hoardings will be removed as i have not granted any permission,” said Mohapatra.
The SJTA is seriously contemplating to introduce Thali (plate) system to curb arbitrary pricing of Mahaprasad being sold in Anand Bazaar.
As per plan, Mahaprasad thalis will be available for Rs 70, Rs 80 and Rs 120. The rate charts will be displayed at all the entry gates of the temple and Anand Bazaar.
However, before the SJTA could act, somebody has put up hoardings illegally.
