Odisha Government Announces To Organise The Annual Rath Yatra, Temple Managing Body Not Yet

How a steely administrative trio pulled off an unusual Rath Yatra

The Odisha government decided to organise the annual Rath Yatra without any devotees but for the smooth process, it has to constitute the managing committee (MC) of Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA).

According to the official report, the process has to be constituted by the managing committee (MC) of Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) as the tenure of the last panel expired in March and a new body has not yet formed.

The report further added that the MC is a statutory as well as apex decision making body of the temple. It is headed by Puri Gajapati Dibyasingh Deb.

Two senior Daita servitors have stated that the temple administration had discussed with the several servitor bodies and Chhatisha Nijog over-performing Snan Yatra rituals scheduled for June 24 without the presence of devotees.

Since the tenure of the temple managing body expired in March and a new one is yet to be constituted, the temple administration had conducted discussions with the nijogs (association of servitors) to organise the annual yatra of the Trinity to continue the age-old tradition, said Ramachandra.
