The allocation for temple development, which was Rs 150 crore in the budget for four months this year, is likely to reach Rs 1,000 crore in the upcoming budget. The state government had launched the temple development scheme on February 27, 2019 with the Rs 3,200 crore Shree Jagannath Heritage Corridor project. In the 2020-21 budget, 50 crores were allocated for the scheme, while no specific amount was earmarked for the initiative in the 2021-22 budget.
