Bhubaneswar, May 7: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today waived off rent of Odisha Bhawan for Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC).
The CM today directed for waiver of Rs 2.16 crore towards rent of Odisha Bhawan from humanitarian grounds. The municipal corporation has been using the Odisha Bhawan for quarantine of doctors and healthcare workers engaged in the treatment of Copvid-19 infected since April last year.

In April last year, Patnaik had appealed the house owners in Odisha to be compassionate to poor and waive off or at least defer the rent by three months in niew of Covid-19 pandemic.
