Bhubaneswar, June 3: In the light of removal of earlier curbs of lockdown, the Bhubaneswar civic body has allowed the parks in Bhubaneswar to be opened but has put its own restrictions.

The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued a notification into this regard and asked the elderly to visit the parks only during the morning between 5am to 7am. The body has also specified timings for other section of the people.

In a notification issued by BMC said it has allowed all parks of BMC and Bhubaneswar Development Authority and Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) falling under the BMC jurisdiction.

“In view of the relaxation made by government order… and in suppression of all previous orders all the public parks of BMC, BDA and BSCL within the jurisdiction of BMC will be opened in all days (except Saturdays and Sunday of June 2020) from 5am to 10am in the morning and 4pm to 6pm in the evening,” the notification said.

The BMC said that the elderly would not be allowed inside the parks beyond the allotted time.

The earlier lockdown orders had barred the movement of people inside parks and these were also banned to be opened. However with the latest norms issued by the Home Ministry and subsequently by the state government they have now been removed from the barred list.

We are a bunch of like-minded people from the media who came forward to build a niche where important news affecting the people at large could be covered independently. This website has been envisioned to be a one stop centre for stories on different facets of the society which should ideally get space in the media but due to several reasons the mainstream media do not give them ample space. This website is trying to build that void. We are trying to report from the important developments from the eastern India with special focus on Odisha, West Bengal and the North East. This website was founded by some senior, mid and new budding journalists to cater to the needs of consumers of digital media which is unbiased, non dependent on government ads for survival and dare to report on the issues which should get ample space in the media and spark debate and discussions in the society. We have our representatives in New Delhi, Odisha, West Bengal, Chattisgarh and North East to cater to the needs of people from their region which are otherwise shunned by the national media. We have our head office at Bhubaneswar in Odisha
